How to set up F-Secure SENSE

Protecting your connected home consists of 2 phases: Creating your secure SENSE network, then connecting all your devices to that network.

To set up your smart and secure SENSE network, download the F-Secure SENSE app from the Google Play Store or the Apple AppStore.

  1. Open the F-Secure SENSE app.
  2. Tap on Create your SENSE network.
  3. Tap (tick) the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy box to continue.
  4. Tap Let's start.
  5. Power up your SENSE router and wait for the LED display to turn on. Tap Continue on the SENSE app.
  6. When the LED display on the SENSE app starts to pulse, press the blue setup button on the back of the SENSE router. Wait for a 4-digit code to appear on the SENSE LED display.
  7. Tap Continue on the SENSE app.
  8. Pair your device and the SENSE router using the 4-digit code. Pairing may take up to a minute.
  9. Select your preferred way to connect SENSE to your router:
    • WiFi
    1. Tap WiFi.
    2. Select your network from the list, and enter your network password to connect.
    3. Tap OK. Allow a few minutes for SENSE to connect to the network.
    • Cable (Ethernet)
    1. Tap Cable.
    2. Connect the Ethernet cable to the port labeled WAN (the blue port) on the SENSE router. Connect the other end to your router.
    3. Tap Continue. Allow a few seconds for SENSE to connect to the Internet.
  10. A secure SENSE network is created. To edit the network name (SSID) and password, tap on the Pencil (edit) icon.
  11. Tap Continue. Allow a few minutes for SENSE to configure the network.
  12. If this is your first time setting up SENSE, you may be prompted to update the SENSE router software. Tap Continue.

    This may take a few minutes and the SENSE router may restart itself during this process.

Once the set up is complete, your device is now automatically connected to the secured SENSE network. To protect your other devices, connect them to your SENSE network one by one. It is advisable for you to "forget" your old WiFi network on your devices before connecting to the SENSE network.
