Thank you for reporting the issue! It seems that some SAFE for Android users faced this problem.

 

We have now released a new version to Google Play Store that should fix this problem.

Re: "New Features " notification on Android will not disappear

Hello,

 

With my experience there was two situations (but also with meanings that after "installing" latest update/build from Play Market):

 

--> Restart device was helpful; or like "shutdown" and then turn ON;

 

--> Required reinstallation (as uninstall and then install F-Secure SAFE and configure it else one time);

 

I think - that if you did not try first "option" yet - maybe you able to re-check.. what if it will be useful there?

 

If not - and second "option" not an option -> maybe you able to contact F-Secure Support channels directly (chat/phone) or later there will  be normal official response about such situation (with proper advices).

 

Thanks!

 I have the same problem even after upgrading to latest version. It would be better to inform us of the version number of the release that is supposed to 'Fix'

Hi PeterK,

 

I have reported it internally that the issue persists even with the recent version. While we investigate, you could try to uninstall and reinstall to see if that fixes the issue.

I have uninstalled it, released the licence, rebooted tablet, reinstalled SAFE, and the welcome message no longer appears. Its annoying to have to go through this but, thank you, it has worked
