F-Secure R&D, Desktop products
We are glad to announce that the latest version of NIF Web Plugin (2021-05-27_01) contains improved Banking Protection sessions that close automatically when browser is navigated away from a banking website or tab is closed. This feature is available in Chrome, Edge and Firefox. To get this feature users need to restart their browser and ensure that "Browsing Protection by F-Secure" browser extension is at least version 3.0.22. Feedback on this feature is much appreciated. Please report any findings to either here or directly to F-Secure beta at https://beta.f-secure.com.
While this is FS Protection 18.1 work, it comes from a different channel and applies to the client while clients stays in 18.0 version. Client version update should follow next week.
Thanks Ville. 👍
Finally found the answer, thank you.
Great job! But I hope to see an improvement in self-defense in future versions. It seems a bit unusual, then the antivirus can be completely disabled by terminating all tasks in the task manager without blocking access.
Hungarian translation is missing on main screen.
Hi I3rYcE, sorry for the long answer.
Fs protection updating and localization processes happen separately. In other words, sometimes, new strings in Non-english versions can come with a delay. I've checked Hungarian and new strings have already been delivered.
Thanks for your feedback, have a great day.
so far, so good with the exception of the firefox plugin which blocks access to my main bank account
Hi yeoldfart, thanks for your feedback.
Sounds like a bug. Could you please create a ticket at the https://beta.f-secure.com/ page? Please mention the URL you are trying to access and attach a fsdiag file, so it will help us to investigate.
Ooh! We have a dark mode? How did I miss this? 🤔
Loving the dark mode! This has been requested for a long time. Good to see the devs taking comments on board. 🙂
And sorry that this is not about night mode theme. :)
I am not sure if this^ point has anything to do with the situation described, but it probably did not happen before. And I am not sure if this is normal or not.
Situation: child profile installation, some time limits applied. For example, bedtime. 0-00:0-30 (just as is for check).
Trouble there: if you are under "Fullscreen" (perhaps, originally I met it with YouTube. But quite possible and I do able to repeat it with Windows 10 default Video application Movies and TV?) from 23:55 and at 0:00 you are still there - then the sleep time lockscreen will not be visible. I mean, it won't switch focus to itself. So, the countdown goes to 0 seconds in the background and you are logged out.
Is it OK? And whether pinned to fs protection design or system own? In general, I did not remember such situations and maybe earlier lockscreen switched focus to itself. By the way, 'toasts' are also not visible probably in full screen (for example, Windows 10 Movies and TV application); but probably based on system design after some of updates.
Thanks for the detailed explanation! I will try to reproduce this.
Thanks for your response.
I just tried to check and with common 'daily use' limits - it is also applied. Notification toast was visible in full screen (Movies and TV / Windows 10), however locksreen was not with switch to itself. Countdown in background and then log out while watching.
I hope to add "ignore" to the scan options,which will help a lot.
My system has started giving random BSODs ever since i installed Version 18.1 build 7.
I'm on Windows 10 version 21H1 (OS build 19043.1165)
Thanks for your feedback! Could you please create a ticket at the Centercode (https://beta.f-secure.com/)? Please turn the logs to the Debug mode (Settings -> Support -> Debug logging) and include the fsdiag file created by the Support tool. It would be very helpful for us to investigate the reason.
Best Wishes, Ivan.
Hi cht132, thanks for your feedback!
Could you please clarify what do you mean?
If you were talking about the manual scan and actions with harmful items, you can choose the "Skip" or the "Exclude" option after the scan. Items of some types can't be excluded (skipped only).
Or, if you know the exact file/folder location, you can add them to the exclusions list at the App and File Control window.
NB: do this at your own risk and only if you 100% trust the file provider.
If you mean the scheduled scan, you can always skip it by pressing the Skip button on a flyer.
Please don't hesitate to ask questions if you have any. Best Wishes, Ivan.
whenever I make the main UI (welcome screen) biger to get rid of the vertical side cursor, the new size is never kept, the main UI get its default size back when closed and opened again.
Not muc to worry about though.
Sorry for the feedback.
Some days how I tried to use "Log out" (not just switch user profile) with fs protection Windows client. From one account to another account (both 'owner' accounts; I mean this is not about invited account as part of circles).
A bit unexpectedly for me (but too fine and nice for my needs; and logically - because no uninstallation or so things; and still that system as before) - things like Recent Events, Statistics and List of Allowed/Denied websites were saved. So, I do able to use fs protection as before without any further steps to re-configure.
However, at least two items were not saved and dropped to default: Protected folders and Scheduled Scan option. Maybe the other ones were just chosen by me as it was by default.
My ask is next: if saving some settings/options/tweaks are expected - then should list of Protected Folders (maybe exclusions too, but my own list was not about any entry) and Scheduled Scan option saved too?
Sorry for my English!
Just a quick note on the shell extension in Windows 11. The new Windows 11 shell extension system proved to be very problematic so we removed the shell extension from the first layer of context menu in Windows 11. You can find the scan entry under "Show more options" submenu.
