TP99 - Safe Search

The email:

 

---

 

Hello,

We are releasing a new version of F-Secure Internet Security Technology Preview (ISTP99) today! This release brings out lots of bug fixes for issues reported from previous versions plus a totally new Safe Search browser integration.

With the latest version it is possible for you to set the Safe Search page as one of your home/startup pages, or as a Search Provider, or even add an extra toolbar to your web browser. With these features we want to bring the Safe Search more easily accessible for you and take away the need to always go through the Launchpad. With Safe Search quickly accessible, you will always get your search results rated by our own best of the class reputation engine.

After a clean installation or an upgrade you will be prompted to take Safe Search into use.

If you encounter any issues with the latest version, please report them through https://beta.f-secure.com as soon as possible.

Best Regards,
F-Secure Beta Piloting Team

I don't know if it's me being thick, but I can't see anything different about Safe Search on IE11 (Win 8.1), and wasn't prompted to "take Safe Search into use".  Has anyone else tried it and got different results?

Hi Simon,

 

There was a bug in the upgrade which caused the prompt to not appear for many people. You should get the prompt after you reboot or log off and log in to the computer.

Hi Ville,

I did reboot a couple of times, and also reinstalled the browsers add-on, but the prompt didn't appear on either my Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 machines. I'll try it again when I next power them on from cold.

Re: TP99 - Safe Search

Any news regarding this?

Maybe you didn't receive the upgrade at all yet?

Re: TP99 - Safe Search

Yes, upgrades definitely received on both machines. Sorry, but I've not been at home to test today, and won't be till later this evening.

I did also file a bug report via the beta program, with more details.

Jan,. any chance of a screenshot., showing what I should be seeing?  I currently have SafeSearch set as my Home page in IE11, but it was before this upgrade.  I am seeing a link under the actual search box to "Add F-Secure Safe Search as your search provider".  Is that all I'm meant to be seeing?

Re: TP99 - Safe Search

As it seems, you already received that upgrade... I have no idea(and I didn't screenshot at my upgrade), so lets wait for FS folks

OK, hopefully I'll hear back from the beta team, and will post any updates here.

Re: TP99 - Safe Search

Hi Simon,

 

You should see an F-Secure Acion Center prompt asking you to enable Safe Search. See screenshot. It's only shown if your current default browser is up-to-date Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox.

Hi Ville,

No, definitely never saw that on either machine, with IE or Firefox, both latest versions.

It would be useful if anyone else could confirm whether they saw this screen or not.
