Support ending for F-Secure SAFE and Mobile Security for Android version 17.6 and earlier
As of December 2020, F-Secure will no longer support F-Secure SAFE for Android/Mobile Security for Android version 17.6 and earlier. This means that these application versions will eventually stop working. We recommend that you update to the latest version by visiting Google Play store.
Also, we strongly recommend that you turn the Auto-update apps feature on in Google Play as follows:
- Open the Google Play store app.
- Select the main menu in the top-left corner of the app and then select Settings > Auto-update apps. The Auto-update apps dialog opens.
- Select one of the following options:
- Over any network
- Over Wi-Fi only
Note: If you select Over any network, data charges may apply.
- Select Done.
Your apps will now be automatically updated once newer app versions are released.
Finally, to stay safe, it is important that you upgrade your device's operating system to the latest version as soon as it comes available. In this way, you make sure that your device receives the latest security updates from Google. The most recent operating system version always provides the best protection, and it is fully maintained by the vendor, receiving timely security updates and improvements.
