SomeBuddy is a digital service that offers anonymous, confidential legal aid and advice about cyber bullying. This service is now being offered free of charge to our F-Secure TOTAL customers in Finland from October 28, 2019 and in Sweden from November 4, 2019 until the end of 2020. The service is offered in Finnish and Swedish. SomeBuddy does not, however, offer a Swedish language service in Finland; this is due to country-specific legislation.
Cyber bullying, which is unfortunately on the rise, is a form of bullying taking place in social media channels and on the web. Although many people do not realize it, some types of cyber bullying can also be illegal. People of any age can experience cyber bullying, which may leave you feeling threatened and harassed.
With the help of professional lawyers and psychologists in the area of social media, this service helps you shed light on bullying situations. SomeBuddy sends you a personalized message in response to your situation.
Once you have signed up for the service and have asked for help, SomeBuddy sends you a reply within 3 business days.
All cases are handled confidentially.
For existing, as well as new TOTAL customers, take the SomeBuddy service into use via your My F-Secure account as follows:
The Social media protection window opens and you can see your SomeBuddy activation codes listed.
To go back to your activation codes later on, go to Subscription > Social media protection in your My F-Secure account.
Note: For new F-Secure TOTAL customers, an activation email is sent to you during the first days of your subscription.
Now that you have activated your SomeBuddy codes, you can start using the service.
The SomeBuddy activation codes are personal and you can use them yourself or share them with other family members.
F-Secure does not share customer information with SomeBuddy and SomeBuddy does not share any information with F-Secure.
The number of unique activation codes for SomeBuddy is tied to the number of device licenses you have with your TOTAL subscription.
The service is not available for trial customers.
