How to enable the system extension from F-Secure on your Mac computer

Real-time scanning protects your computer by scanning all files when they are accessed and by blocking access to those files that contain malware.

When you are installing F-Secure SAFE on your Mac computer, the software needs to make changes to your system to enable real-time scanning. To enable this system change, you need to allow the new system extension to load. If you fail to enable the extension, the real-time scanning feature is turned off and your computer is not fully protected.

During the installation, the System Extension Blocked dialog is shown indicating that a program tried to load a system extension signed by F-Secure Corporation. To enable the extension:

  1. On the dialog, select Open Security Preferences. The Security & Privacy window opens.
  2. On the General tab, select Allow.

This allows F-Secure's system extension to load, and your computer is fully protected.

Note: If you didn't enable the system extension during the installation, you can still do it as soon as you have activated the product:

  1. Open SAFE and select the Enable real-time scanning for full protection link.

    The Allow new system extension from F-Secure dialog opens.

  2. On the dialog, select Security & Privacy.

    The Security & Privacy window opens.

  3. On the General tab, select Allow.

This allows F-Secure's system extension to load, and your computer is fully protected.
