The F-Secure SAFE app sends you notifications on certain app activities.
For best protection, we recommend to keep the default settings on.
The notifications from the SAFE app are ON by default. Once you receive
a notification, an indicator icon appears on your phone's status bar. To see
more information about the notifications, open the notification panel by
dragging the status bar downwards.
As for all apps on your Android device, you can customize the
notification settings for the SAFE app. To access the notification settings for
SAFE, open the F-Secure SAFE app, tap the menu in the top-left corner of the
screen and select
Settings > App
notifications (a link under Notifications).
To view notification category-specific settings, tap on the desired
App icon badges
If you have allowed app icon badges in the system notification
settings, a badge appears on the SAFE app icon as soon as there is a
notification from SAFE. You can even select the notification categories which
you want to receive notifications from.
The badges can be shown with or without numbers. The badge disappears
as soon as you dismiss the notification. To display icon badges on app icons
when apps receive notifications:
Settings > Notifications
to open the system notification settings.
App icon badges switch to activate it.
For more App icon badge
settings, tap on
App icon badges.
Note: When F-Secure makes changes to the notification feature
and updates the F-Secure SAFE app, users may see the following system message
in the App notifications settings page:
11 categories deleted
This is a default system message
which requires no actions from the user.
