Automatic updates are turned on as soon as you install the F-Secure software. When your computer is connected to the Internet, the F-Secure product checks for new updates every two hours and downloads the daily updates automatically.
The entire update package is quite large, and the download time depends on the speed of your Internet connection. If your computer has not been turned on in the last seven days, the entire update package will be downloaded and installed, and this takes longer than the normal daily updates.
Note: To make the download as fast as possible, we recommend that you connect your computer to the Internet at least once a week if possible.
