What kind of data does F-Secure collect when using the SENSE service and why?

We only collect a minimal amount of data needed for us to provide the SENSE service and develop it further, thus offering you a better overall user experience. This data collection includes information about how you use the SENSE service and app.

In addition, the types of the devices connecting to your SENSE network are recognized in order to distinguish between IoT (smart home) devices and personal devices. This information allows us to provide the IoT device protection function.

The device type recognition sends traffic data to and from a newly connected device to our cloud service for analysis for a short period of time. Once the device is recognized as a personal device (for example, a Windows PC, iPhone or Android tablet), the traffic data stops being sent, and the data that has been collected to determine the device type is eventually deleted for that device. For IoT devices, certain parts of the device traffic are sent to our cloud service for traffic anomaly detection, which is the basis for the advanced IoT protection.

We take privacy very seriously, and for this reason F-Secure SENSE has been designed to anonymize the data we collect. We never sell your data. Furthermore, you can opt out of any data collection that is not mandatory for providing the service.

For more information, see our Privacy Principles on our website. SENSE uses the F-Secure Security Cloud, and the privacy policy for that also applies to SENSE; for more details, see Security Cloud privacy policy.
