- When I run the F-Secure application installer I receive the followng error: For security and performance Windows 10/11 in S mode runs Microsoft verified apps...To get this app you need to switch out of S mode or find a similar app in the store.
- Why am I unable to install F-Secure application on my computer in Windows 10/11 S mode?
Windows 10/11 in S Mode is a more limited, locked-down Windows operating system. In S Mode you can only install apps from the Store and you can only browse the web with Microsoft Edge. F-Secure products are not available in Microsoft App store, so you need to get out of the S mode to use our products.
If you purchase a PC in S Mode, you can leave S Mode for free. It doesn’t cost anything, but it is a one-time decision — once you’ve taken the PC out of S Mode, you can never put it back into S Mode.
How to Check If You’re Using S Mode
You can check whether you’re using S Mode by heading to Settings > System > About. On the About page, scroll down to the “Windows Specifications” section.
If you see the words “in S mode” to the right of the Edition entry, you’re using an S Mode PC. If not, you’re not using S Mode.
How to Leave S Mode
Before that, do take note, switching out S-Mode is one-way and you may check with Microsoft if you need any information regards with this or related to S Mode.
