End of Windows XP support for F-Secure SAFE and F-Secure Internet Security

Our Windows XP support for F-Secure SAFE and F-Secure Internet Security came to an end in June 2016, after providing an extended period of support for the operating system. Microsoft announced the end of Windows XP support in April 2014.

What does end of support mean?

End of support means that if our home security product is installed on a Windows XP operating system, we cannot guarantee the protection on that computer. As Windows XP support for F-Secure SAFE and Internet Security has ended, this means that -- if the operating system on your computer is Windows XP -- your computer no longer receives the necessary security updates and may be more open to security vulnerabilities as a result.

What should I do?

To stay safe, we highly recommend that you upgrade your computer operating system to Windows versions that receive security updates from Microsoft. The most recent operating system version always provides the best protection technologies and is fully maintained by the vendor, receiving timely security updates and improvements.

What happens to my software after end of support?

If you have a valid license for our product and you upgrade your computer operating system, your existing license will still be valid for the supported platforms.

Note: To check the system requirements for our home security products, please take a look at these articles:

These important issues, however, do affect the home security product you have in use after end of Windows XP support for F-Secure SAFE and Internet Security:

  • The home security product on your Windows XP computer no longer receives important security updates, and your computer may be vulnerable to harmful viruses and other malware.
  • If you currently have our home security product installed on your Windows XP computer and your license expires, you will no longer be able to renew that license on your Windows XP computer.
  • If you reinstall our home security product on a Windows XP operating system, our product will discontinue to work, as the latest versions of our home security products are no longer compatible with Windows XP.
