We are pleased to announce a new release of the FS Protection for Mac. This update is now available for download from My FS Protection, and delivery to existing installations starts today.
This is the second of several planned beta releases of FS Protection for Mac with support for Family Rules. Like with FS Protection on other platforms, you can now manage your parental control settings using the My FS Protection web portal. See this post for more information about Family Rules on Mac.
Notable changes in this release:
New Safari extension supporting the upcoming Safari version 12
Improved Family Rules onboarding
Support for switching Family Rules profile (NOTE: see Known Issues below)
Fixes issues where changes to profile restrictions in My FS Protection would not take effect until a restart
Banking protection in the new Safari extension may show more notifications than expected
After switching away from a Family Rules profile originally activated with the previous FS Protection version, it will not be possible to switch back to the original profile. As a workaround, uninstall FS Protection and add it as a new device from My FS Protection.
