What does the SENSE app do?

Standalone version of SENSE

F-Secure SENSE uses a three-layer protection system consisting of the SENSE router, the SENSE app, and the F-Secure Security Cloud.

Within this three-layer system, the SENSE app has several functions depending on whether you are using the standalone version of SENSE or SENSE with F-Secure TOTAL.

The SENSE app has the following functions:
  • As the admin app, it is required for the set-up and configuration of the SENSE router.
  • It enables constant monitoring of your network. Unlike other routers, the SENSE router does not have a web interface. Access to the router is gained solely via the admin app, making it convenient for you to access your SENSE network information wherever you are.
  • It provides on-the-go protection for supported devices that go outside the SENSE network.
  • It adds an extra layer of protection within your SENSE network for those devices that can run the app. With the SENSE app installed on your Windows PC and Mac, the app provides protection for your Windows PC and Mac devices against malware distributed, for example on a USB memory stick.
