Is there autoupdate for Key on Windows devices?

Hi, 

 

I am using Key Premium for some time now. Beside 2 iOS devices I am syncing passwords across 4 Windows 10 devices. Since Apple AppStore provides autoupdate for apps there is no need to watch out for updates.

On my Windows devices I always manually downloaded the the latest installer to get the latest version of Key. On none of these devices some kind of notice appeard that there is a newer version available.

 

So to my question: Did anyone experienced Key autoupdating on Windows or any kind of notice that a newer version is available for download?

Hi Vetraci,

 

I did a quick check with the KEY team about your question.

Auto update on Windows works, but only for major upgrades. There should be a notification about the new version and if the user clicks it, new version will get installed.

Hello,

 

Sorry for my reply.

 

As part of this topic (also about such concerns):

https://community.f-secure.com/t5/F-Secure-KEY/F-Secure-Key-Windows-MacOs/td-p/97015

 

I added such words:

"Autoupdating channel for Windows" previously was marked as potential trouble (some meanings); Maybe based on points that it not always required; It was there and maybe already can be not actual:
https://community.f-secure.com/t5/F-Secure-KEY/Key-does-not-update-itself/m-p/50451/highlight/true#M459

https://community.f-secure.com/t5/F-Secure-KEY/Key-does-not-update-itself/m-p/50451/highlight/true#M... is practically "outdated" official answer about "automatic updating" (and maybe F-Secure Key Team already with another view);



But I have experience about "notification-> available updates"; There can be some limitations and "not expected" design (including some troubles), but there was such topic:

https://community.f-secure.com/t5/F-Secure-KEY/Key-does-not-remind-about-new/m-p/75356

 

Where available information that not all of "updates" will trigger such notification;

 

It will be good to read normal and official response from F-Secure (on current days);

 

Thanks!
