Issue with real-time scanning after Computer Protection for Mac installation on macOS High Sierra

Symptoms

After installation of our Mac product on macOS High Sierra, a red F-Secure (X) icon may appear when running real-time scanning.

Diagnosis

This is due to a new security feature, which has been introduced with macOS High Sierra (10.13) or higher. During first time installation, the security feature requires you to allow system software from F-Secure. Until the software is allowed, real time scanning will fail.

Solution

Once the installation is complete, allow F-Secure software as follows:

  1. Go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy, and select the General tab.
