    Hi @GKLR

    Apologies for the late response.

    The answer to this question was given in the post here.

    This is definitely something we are looking into but there's no specific timeframe for when it will be achieved.

    Thanks for your patience and understanding.

    Can't recommend F-Secure products now to Apple Silicon computer users. Evernote and Splashid as well. Can't understand why no Apple Silicon versions after more than a year after M1 chip was released. Usually its a simple recompile using Apple tools.

    I would hope that ID Protect would work with Rosetta, but SAFE (esp. DeepGuard component), FreeDome, etc. I suspect would need to work at a lower level.

    Given there seems to have been zero activity on making f-secure's products run on Apple's M1 silicon I have to wonder whether they are not thinking of killing off support for Apple platforms - which would be a pain.

    Hopefully someone from f-secure will provide an answer to my question...

    Given the length of time Apple's M1 SoC has been available, Apple's stated intention of moving entirely to its own silicon and the reasonably plausible leaks indicating that they will be releasing their next generation SoCs later this year, I'd have to say that the lack of any current native support for Apple's SoCs and no timeframe for the introduction of such support makes me as a long time f-secure customer think I need to find an alternative product range.

    Bluntly it looks to me like f-secure is going to abandon user's of Apple's macOS and if that is the case why would I expect support for iOS/iPadOS to continue.
