Freedome for Mac

In another thread from 2013 you describe that Freedome is coming to Mac OS X "later" this year. I couldn't find updated information from anywhere or any official statement about Mac support.

 

Any chance you could update the Freedome for Mac schedule for us? Would you need / accept beta testers?

Please have a try and let us know what you think.

Re: Freedome for Mac

I would love to have Freedom for Macintosh. It is by far one of F-Secure's most helpful products. PARTICULARLY IF BOTH NEIGHBORS seem to have roaming Wi-Fi network fingers. I only have the choice of little Snitch 3.5 as network firewall protectìon. Then I use another third party VPN ahem because I have no choice Smiley Sad.

Freedome for Mac, is still in the making but we should get a beta program starting for it in the coming months.

 

We will update you when we have more details on that.

Re: Freedome for Mac

Great news and thanks for the reply. As I'm probably not the only Mac user out there browsing for different VPN solutions, you could maybe state "Mac OS X coming 2015" in the system requirements... instead of just being totally silent about the OS X support.

Re: Freedome for Mac

I agree with Jhx.

 

You are doing yourself a huge disservice by not keeping potential customers informed of your plans with OS X.

There are many potential customers such as myself who are searching for a reliable and trustworthy one-stop VPN service to use on all their devices, especially OS X.

 

Having now used your VPN service on all the iOS devices in my household, I'm impressed enough to hold on until you release support for OS X, but you seem to remain silent on that front while many other customers are probably not willing to wait and are choosing the full range of services on offer from your competitors.

 

You risk losing a part of the market that would make me very unhappy if I were a shareholder.

Re: Freedome for Mac

I am interested in a Mac OS X version, too. When is the estimated release date? Does it make sense for me to wait or should I move on?

Re: Freedome for Mac

Ben,

thank you for your fast response. I cross my fingers that the development team can make it before the summar vacations.

Re: Freedome for Mac

If I purchase Freedome for 3 devices now, will the Mac version be automatically added as an option without having to purchase a different plan later?
