We all work  for F-Secure. F-Secure has been protecting computer users from cyber threats for over 20 years. Our headquarters are in Helsinki, Finland, where it gets very cold, and we have offices in 18 countries.

But it’s not all about us, it’s about you. We want to hear your comments and ideas!

I’m sure I’ll be checking your blog in the future too, it’s important to stay safe online! 🙂

I love blogs like this. You provide a vital service in todays cyber dominated lifestyle. You’re bookmarked and already added to my daily “websites to check” list… keep up the good work and if you can keep getting better!! Too many people rely on Norton and McAfee without realising that companies like F-Secure even exist!! Spread the word and keep us safe….

Never underestimate how inexperienced the user may be! The fiasco at http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/facebook_wants_to_be_your_one_true_login.php is a great example: imagine if that was a rouge site! Always appreciated F-Secure informing users instead of simply pushing their own products, keep it up guys!

(and if the six month trial goes well, I might look at buying a regular subscription! Always keen to support ethical companies who put resources into informing users and having their best interests at heart instead of simply dependent on their products!)

I wonder if more mature users who did not grow up with the internet or pc are being considered. Some people simple have the pc and internet for emails, on-line shopping, on-line banking and browsing. They just need to simply know how to do the basics safely in words they understand.

Hi I have recently been reading some of your TOTALLY AWESOME articles. I don’t know a lot about internet security stuff. My friend put Norton on my laptop for virus protection. If I were to use your stuff will I have to delete Norton? That should tell you how Savy I’m not lol. Thank you kindly.
Your new friend in Ottawa, Canada

Hi Brian and thank you for you encouraging feedback!

We will send you – and everyone else who has commented – details by email so you can download six months worth of F-Secure Internet Security 2010 for free. However, it does mean that you would have to give up Norton. I’m afraid two different security products don’t coexist on the same computer.

Hi Angela!

The names are very similar I know, but we’re F-Secure not F-Prot. F-Prot is one of our competitors based in Iceland. 🙂 F-Secure runs smoothly too!

About 2 years ago my friend has instaled two different anti virus programs on my computer and he told me those programs complement each other. I was surprised cos I knew only one can be instaled at the same time, but he is profesional at IT field and he has changed some settings on my computer and it was working very well without any problems.
Today all security programs did big progress but malicious software as well. Do you think F-secure program is a good enough to protect my computer ? Any suggestion ?
Sorry for my poor English.

Good luck ladies of F- Secure and Jason. Internet Security Programs today have become more bloated and complicated by the minute. The trouble is that users are bombarded with so many complicated pop-ups that require answers with degrees in engineering, that many people just answer yes, defeating the whole purpose of the program. The main issue is that the programs should be simple and intelligent at the same time. I have gone through so many for this reason, paid and free, that I am becoming disgusted. I hope and trust that F-Secure is a vendor that listens to its users some of the time, rather than the programmers who create the programs most of the time.

Nice to have this kinda security related blog around with understandable basic language.

Keep up the good work.

Your blog seems interesting, and a little less technical than the main blog of F-Secure. (And I didn’t know women could be so interested by PC security!)

Actually, I do have a question that might be worth an article (or two):

How to find out that a computer has been infected with something. Essentially, what are the symptoms? What sort of behavior is normal for a computer, and what isn’t normal?

And as a follow up: How to get rid of malware after a computer has been infected (up to, and including, working with the F-Secure LiveCD to clean up the system, and / or make recovery of important data, if the system cannot be cleaned anymore).

Thanks for your excellent tips Phillip! We’ll definitely cover these topics in future posts.

Malware tends to be quite sneaky nowadays and does its best to hide itself. This means that in many cases you don’t really see any symptoms of your computer being infected.

One symptom can be that you can’t access the page you’ve set as the home page in your browser and you keep getting taken to different page.

A quick and easy (and free!) way to check that your computer is clean is to run the F-Secure Online Scanner. This nifty tool will tell you if you are infected and help you remove possible malware from your system.

Cheers,
Hetta

Can’t possibly get enough computer security information. Looking forward to seeing what’s to come.

I have been recommending F-Secure products to my clients and they love it. The 2010 versions of F-Secure security products have made massive performance and protection improvements. I’ve stopped recommending ESET to my clients since F-Secure’s performance improvements and ESET’s decreasing detection rates. F-Secure’s Deepguard 2.0 technology also works wonderfully for catching unknown malware, which is currently increasing exponentially. That’s just my 2 cents…

What an awesome way to try and keep people up to date and aware of security issues. Keep up the great work.

Congratulations on your blog. I will visit more often because i want to learn how to be safe online. Thanks.

Security for my PC is a mandatory subject to me… I’ll check your blog peridically.

I think it’s awesome that this site and contents are ran by F-Secure ladies. Hopefully this will help a lot of non-tech savvy users navigate around the dangerous web. The simple layout is easy to navigate around and find what you need. Hopefully the site will stay un-clutter, no ads, fresh contents, and simple. This way I can refer my friends and family to this site for security information.

Thanks for the site.

Hi
Sincere congratulations F-Secure Ladies for your blog.
I think it would be nice to read simple and short reviews even for beginners on how prevent infections, how to practice a safe use of the internet and how to help families to protect their children from cybercriminals along side analisys of malware and hacking attempts.

Yes, I would really like to see those reviews.
I’m sure you’ll do a great job.

Cheers

hey, nice blog. well i used antivirus mainly not the internet security, but got a headache with false AV attacks recently, so internet security is a must..

Your effort is really commendable, so is your promotion! I’m ready to stop using any other security suite and start F-Secure!

Hi Hetta,

It is one of it’s kind to see a license given away from the Security team.

I would appreciate if you could spare one for me.

Just wondering after looking at the “very cold” pic, how did the guy managed to get in between the ice..:lol

Regards,
Grr

Hi Hetta, please let me congratulate you and your collegues for this useful idea. I don’t know much about computers stuff, and even less about security. I try to learn from good forums and websites (I just took notice of your website throug Raymond’s Forum) and I have found some good, serious and helpful people this way. Reading your blog, the security issue that intrigues me most is the online backup: why is it better then backup to a hard drive/disk/pen…? I would think that online backup is less safe…
All the best to your blog. Cheers.

Hi Paf!

Thanks for your question. We feel Online Backup is safer than backing up on physical devices simply because something can happen to those. Your computer can break down, you can spill coffee on you external hard drive or the dog can swallow the USB key.

If your data is backed up securely online, then you can reinstall the backup on a new computer and you haven’t lost a single file. 🙂

Cheers,
Hetta

This is a very refreshing idea, internet security issues seem to be -at least commonly- considered a men’s domain. Fingers crossed for your initiative. I’m also very curious of F-Secure, do you still use a BitDefender engine in your product or do you have more sources for virus signatures?
All the best.

I need to try new IS version, I’m used Antivirus 2010, but I think I need more online protection

Big “thanks” to your brethren 🙂 at the F-Secure blog for pointing me over here. I’m a programmer, so I like their tech-heavy posts… but it looks like your blog will give me user-friendly explanations of difficult concepts that I can send to my friends who are always asking me why their computer runs so slowly. I’ll add it to my RSS feeds right away, too. Good luck!

Hi its look nice blog . good that its written in easy language for all .

as an exoert ill advice my young brothers to have a look on this blog.

Hi,
i ended up on this blog through a link from the F-Secure Weblog which i read daily.
I love reading it and i wish more posts were made as the subject of online security really interests me.

My question towards you would be:
“Since our browser is our main way of communicating with the internet and most bad things come onto our computer through our browser, their plugins/addons and their vulnerabilities, wouldn’t a closer connection between the browsers and the virus scanner/internet security software make surfing safer? (I mean as having the security software being part of the browser so that all that happens to your browser goes through your security software before its allowed to run/do what its supposed to do)
Isn’t it so that now most things are loaded onto your computer, then checked/scanned and removed if found bad? Wouldn’t security software integrated into your browser allow those files to be ‘downloaded’ into a safe zone (like a sandbox), checked and then allowed to run or not make things safer?”

Just a thought i had today …
Greets from Belgium.

Hi Roel!

Actually, F-Secure already does that!

We have a feature in Internet Security 2010 called Browsing Protection which tells you if the site you are entering is safe or not. If it shows a green tick, then it’s safe. If it shows a red x then you should go there as there is a risk something nasty will get downloaded onto your computer. If there’s a gray question mark, then we don’t know yet whether the site is safe or not.

You can also use Browsing Protection for free to check urls. Just go to http://browsingprotection.f-secure.com/swp/, enter the url you’re about to visit and the service will tell you if it’s safe.

Safe surfing!

Cheers,
Hetta

Thanks for making it pink – I live in a house with five males and I need more pink things!!
By the way – is it possible to have the teenage security and child security accessible from the same computer. eg, younger son sign in on child and older son on teenager, me on adult?

Good for you and thanks again.

i know F-secure from my provider in belgium.i used it on my lap top for a while now,but not on my desktop (AVG free).i like Fs more because its easyer to handle

grts from belgium

Security, Security the most important aspect to be taken into consideration before connecting to the internet. Everyone who uses the internet knows the treat.

Thank you for this great blog I will keep on checking.

Best regards,

i got the info from your action from raymonds blog and i wanna test f-secure.im running avira home now.so im new with this suite
regards goldy

hi,this blog’s site is very well.
I’m sure I’ll be checking your blog in the future too, it’s important to stay safe online.
sorry for my english.

thank u for this nice promo,im using KIS avast now,but wanna change to a more complete security suite,i hope that i like FS also

Another interesting blog to visit. I hope I will learn more about safty in internet with you.

I just happen to find your blog and found it very interesting and will be checking back quite often. I think f-secure is a very reliable security program after using a 3 month trial would love to have 6 more months. I just hope the 6 months license can be used on more than 1 computer being our family has a few.

Hi Mike!

Glad to hear it! This special offer is just for one computer, I’m afraid.

Cheers,
Hetta

I would like to know,how reliable is the F-Secure’s firewall,how configurable?I’m not a security savy,but to be honest,i like to have more control on my security applications(like firewall,HIPS…)
I heard good things and i read nice reviews about F-Secure,AV,or IS…Who knows,maybe your product will be a keeper…..or not…

I am a big fan of Avast(the old version). However in recent it makes me disappointed since it can’t not detect virus in my USB ( infected when I plug in the university’s computers ). As a result, I have to re-install window xp (bring my PC to repair site) and that is terrible feeling because all of old assignments which I tried to save in D driver was lost. Sorry I can’t tell you which one infected my computer because I don’t know much about virus. This is unforgettable experience.
Never use F-secure before,Can you tell me strong points of F-secure?

I suppose I should visit this blog to get more understanding on these “security program”

Regards,

F security is the great software. i have used this for 4 month
this six month key is trial version or not

when i visited the some site it has spyware f secur internet security 2009 does not remove all the spyware but after some time it says risware is found and ask me wht to do.while other antivirus removed when it caught software.know i want to use the f secure 2010 and see how much it improve

Nice opportunity to check your solution against others in my virtual machines!
Would really like to test it out.

Keep on blogging and give the readers important older news about how to be careful.

internet Security Software is necessary for all computer because cyber threats are increase heavily. I am using a squared anti malware 4.5 but its licences is over in march 31. so now i want to try F-Secure Internet Security 2010.

Hi. I never try F-secure before so dare not to leave any comment here but would like to give my new notebook a try after 60 day subcription to Norton expired. My friend recommend F -Secure to me, he say that scanning time of F secure is much more better than Norton i using now.. I found out that it quite rare in my country in South East Asia. Maybe because lack of advertisement. So hope to get 1 license here and give it a try.
Thank you very much.

I have a question About Internet Security.
What thing keep in mind while purchasing a internet security?
what function Should a internet security contains?

hi,congrats on your all ladies blog,few intresting article like : How to Avoid Ever Being Phished on Twitter hoping to return to read more / good tips,advice and information

regards

Hey this looks like a interesting Internet security suite. Please count me in for a free 6 month license!

I read about this blog on the net and i want to use ur security product. Currently i am using avira free edition and want to find difference between them.

I use F-Secure for almost 2 years , I like specially the different range setting of Firewall & full features of the parantal control. FS performs perfect protection to my computer.

here i saw F-secure given by airtel broadband and it was better than some of the anti-virus i need to know whether i can detect and heal malwares or spywares like a-square or some anti-spywares like that …

ty

Have never tried F-secure…And can’t wait to give it a tryout!!! Keep up the good work!

Really love to hear that you ppl also started the new services,i have used F-Secure trial version before and found it very secure,especially the ppl living in third world countries like South East Asia Pacific Zone ,where BB services has started around 4 to 5 years back and ppl too are also not aware the online threats what they might face while doing their daily chores through internet like i-net banking etc., really you ppl have taken a good initiative by providing 6 months license of F-Secure,at least ppl should know what might be the risk they face
If you think my views are alike then send a key and downloading link too
Thanks

Hi,

Thank you for such an interesting blog. Your posts are both relevant and important to ordinary users like us. Would love to try out F-Secure as I have heard good reviews about it.

Keep up the good work!!

Ivan

Hi,

I am currently using Kaspersky Internet security & I would defintely love to try out F-Secure.

Cheers

Jason

hey can i have one license. mine kaspersky is about to over in a weeks time , now i wanna try F secure to see which one is better

First of all thanks for your kind giveaway. Secondly can you please let me know How secure is F-Secure against Rogue AV’s ? I have tested many rogues with F-secure and 70-80% are able to bypass DeepGuard….and get installed. By the way i will be happy if you can email me the details of F-Secure and about its DeepGuard. I will love to review your F-Secure on my Blog, so that my user/readers can have deep insight about F-secure.

I guess i will also eligible for the free giveaway.

Anyways last but not least, you have really nice pic at your profile

AdminusX

Hi Adminus!

Thanks so much for your feedback. I talked to the Lab about your comment and the tricky thing with rogue antivirus (this is malicious software that pretends to be an antivirus product) is that it uses social engineering tricks to try to get people to install it. Tricking people is hard to fight with just technology, rather you need to try to educate people so that they don’t fall for the scams.

And of course this is what we try to help with on Safe and Savvy. 😉

However, we are constantly developing our DeepGuard technology so that it will better detect rogue antivirus sites meaning people don’t come across them to begin with.

Cheers,
Hetta

i have used mcafee cuz got it free on broadband,,, used norton cuz its virus is good scan..lol…— my personal opinions…. heard from my bro who studies IT that f-secure has robust firewall…would give a try…it would have been nice if trail was for 1 year.
what i use — mcafee, malwarebytes anti malware, super anti spyware, prevx, cc cleaner, firefox addons– better privacy, no script, my wot, force tls. 🙂

Hi, I came across your site while browsing a security forum. I am glad I found your site and I will be a regular visitor too. Thanks.

Thx
It is said that F-Secure Internet Security is so good.I want to try it……………….thanks ….

This blog looks interesting. Surely I’ll be check this blog furure.
I use F-Secure its very good.

I’ve followed f-secure postings for a long time, thanks for all the insight. Keep up the good work and I look forward to reading the new blog also.

online security is of vast importance dears.the p2p sharing and torrents download are increasing and the files downloaded can be viruses.. so a internet security software is neccesary..i would love to take F – Secure security..

Remaining safe and secure could be very simple and yet complex too. Depends on an individual’s browsing habits/mannerisms. It requires an anti virus for sure, an anti phishing plug in like site advisor or if a person can afford n have the option of full security suites like f-secure/norton/kaspersky/eset etc. then nothing like it. Being strict about the websites you visit and the stuff you download is important.

wow F-secure.. its one of the best internet security.. i would like to suggest something for them to include in their armor .. its ” gaming mode” and also certificate by ” West Coast Labs Anti-Virus”..
rest is ok…
i would also like to take the 6 month serial no. of this software..

I have rencetly been reading your some articals, but I konw a little about this. thanks alot
your new friend in.China。

Sounds interesting, I remember using F-Secure a while ago, I’d like to try it again.

Hey,

First, of all thanks for this useful post. I am curious to know about the malware and torjons and how F-secure Internet Security will help my computer from protecting aginst these viruses?

Thanks,

I agree with Steve, The most difficult problem of today is getting people protected, people doesn’t want to install antivirus because they think their pc will never be attacked by a virus, and they think the antivirus will decrease their speed twice than a virus.

I think this is a cool idea… Send me a license so I can try out F-Secure!
I have been to Helsinki once in the winter and you are right… It’s freezing cold when you are coming from Singapore.

And esp bad when your hosts get you to strip naked in a sauna and then jump into a frozen lake!

Hi Kevin!

Sounds like you’ve had the full Finnish experience! 🙂

Enjoy the warmth in Singapore. We’re waiting it to go above zero Celsius here in Helsinki.

Cheers,
Hetta

save and savvy,never heard about this site, very interesting.im from finnland so f-secure is very trusted software here in north id like to give it a change. best regards.Pepper

I wish I could live in a cold place like Finland.
BTW, congratulations on your blog, I discovered it from F-Secure twitter and will check it back often 🙂

hello! is this the f-secure anti-virus that has been on the scene since my college years? if it is, well, its a good thing! it was very effective back in the old DOS day..

its a nice feeling that f-secure is still around… goodluck guys!

I have’nt installed F-Secure Product. But I want to use your product. Thanks a lot! Have a nice day~

Thanks goes to Raju @ techpp.com for spreading the word on this. I landed here purely for the free at this time, this is my honest statement. Thanks you ladies.

Thanks for your honesty Shyam and we hope you come back to us for the stories!

Cheers,
Hetta

Always looking to try software . I will gladly drop NIS 2010 to try this for 6 months . Sounds interesting .

Thanks for not being too much techy on us. As it’s important to stay safe online your tips will be going to work. Thanks in advance.

Hi!
i am new to safe and savvy.
Went throghsome of your articles and they are reaaly very comprehensive.
Thanks a lot.
Will add you to google reader.

HI, I come from china and my friends are like Fsis too , it will be protected my digit.
Several months ago , i have Comparison between Fsis and kaspersky, the Fsis files is too large after installed. but the task scan and start-up speed are all faster then kaspersky.
My English language is limited , please understand and forgive it !

Hi M Randall!

I think you will find Internet Security 2010 super light and quick compared to the previous version. Tell us how it goes!

Cheers,
Hetta

HI, thanks for your license !
PS: I intend to tour Finland on 2010, can i visit the FSIS company?

I have been following F-secure Twitter tips, now onwards I will follow safeandsavvy and I will share this offer with my blog readers

Hi Levy!

This time we wanted to offer the more comprehensive solution, which is Internet Security. It contains antivirus, naturally.

Cheers,
Hetta

i was not concerned with security till i discovered internet, and some strange names appeared, worm, backdoor, Trojan, rootkits….., i feel unsafe and installed free antivirus, but the question still persist, am i safe?

Nice blog about Seciurity:)
Now i using Kaspersky Antivirus with Online AromorFirewall And Sandboxie its nice combobut really heavy to my system…….
Is F-Secure Internet Security 2010 prevents against keyloggers?.

I read about mikko hypponen in Readers Digest when i was 12yrs old, now i am 22. i was inspired the way the article was, back then many people could not understand what is computer virus. i still remember the article and the cover of it. i searched about mikko and i found out it was F-Secure.
From then i regularly follow your weblog for security threat info.

You guys are great, and INSPIRING!

Hi Vignesh!

That’s wonderful to hear! Mikko has been with us for a long time and to be honest, hasn’t aged one bit! I forwarded your comment to him. 🙂

Cheers,
Hetta

A lot of things can be said about security in any environment. But in any case, the most important part of it is to stay informed and use safe practices. Good job guys, always a fan of F-Secure.

It is a real pleasure to get an offer from one of the most celebrated manufacturer of a worldclass internet securityi.e. F-secure internet security.If we find its features suitable to our purpose, we may decide to get longer license from the company

This would give me an opportunity to try your product for a longer-term period.

Caution: I use Norton 360 and NIS 2010 daily, and I use Microsoft Security Essentials for the XP Mode VMs in Windows 7.

You have to beat the above, though I use and recommend F-Secure Home Server Security for Windows Home Server.

I’ve been trying to find good stuff in the internet for personal review and download-able links. I want to post something valuable and worthwhile for my audience. I think by giving your f-secure 6 months trial should do the job. It should drive traffic to your website. So just give me your permission and I will link it to my blog. Thanks F-secure.

Thanks Lumadi!

It is a limited time offer and we have received so many comments already that we’re likely to run out of keys very soon!

Cheers,
Hetta

Hi,
This is a nice surprise. I am not very tech minded but it’s inspiring to have women putting forth their expertise as a united group on the net. I am always learning about the ways of using computers and interested in the progress of security ware designed for people to easily understand. A complicated process of protection broken down for the everyday user to better comprehend is a necessity as also is the ability of the software to safeguard our privacy. Look forward to your info. Indabel Arentz, Australia

Hi. I never try F Secure before and my new laptop Norton’s 60-day subcription is going to expire soon. My friends have recommend F Secure because the scanning time is quite fast. But F Secure is rarely to be found in my country in South East Asia, maybe because lack of advertisement. Hope i can get 1 license so that can give it a try.
Thank you very much.

Regard,
Anson

I heard that Kaspersky is one of the the best security software. I also heard that F-Secure uses Kaspersky engine. Is it true?

If yes, then I am interested to give a try. Let’s start by sending me the sixth month free, will ya?

Hi Moe-Chan!

Actually, we don’t use a Kaspersky engine, but I will send you our Internet Security 2010 anyway to try out! 🙂

Cheers,
Hetta

Hi, Last week I read an article about F-secure and others Internet Security programs. I don’t know why the winner was Kaspersky. Second place – Norton… I had Kaspersky about three months and I think, that this IS is good but not the best. I had some problems – my computer worked slowly (I have a good notebook from Toshiba). Now I use Norton 360… It doesn’t show any information. Is it works? I don’t konw:)
What do you think about F-Secure?

I got this mail from TechPP where I got to know about yours blogs. I have learned some of your blogs for internet security and that is really awesome and helpful.
I guess many of the tech Savvy like me, dont know much about the Internet security this is really disgusting. But the efforts like you guys are showing to, are really helpful and encouraging.
I hope to be regular viewer of your blogs and be active menber.

It’s a great blog, thx ! I’m going to check it everyday 😉

Keep on this nice job.

Hi! Im glad for the recently launch of this Blog regarding one of the most powerful security suite in 2010. I wish You good luck in the near future!

Hello,
To stay secure in the web is a challenge. To stay insecure – is a freak. So, make your choice… :).

i have tried most of the internet securities. Out of Which F secure, Norton , Kaspersky are good.. Can Fsecure give Cards and login options ?…

Thanks for this promotion . I’m really interesting to use F-secure for Comparison it with another products. But I heard that the F-secure is one of the best and use two engine. Is that true?

Never had F-Secure, but I will try it gladly, as I heard that the newest version was really worth to use. Many today’s ISs give great oportunity to stay safe, but only few of them don’t bother pc performance. I hope, yours is the one.
Cheers
JK

Nice idea – a security site for the non techie. Be sure to put the effort in (as I am sure you would) into SEO to make sure you hit the less techie people hit the blog. With the vast lack of understanding of security and it’s implications from the less geeky users of the interweb any effort like this will always get a great response from the infosec crowd.

Good luck.

I’ve heard good things about F-Secure. It is a solid antivirus and well protects your computer while browsing the Web, a secure, fast, does not transform into another. I had no contact with this program and I do not know if this truth. My interest in him, however, is increasing. The networks meet every other dangers with which we must somehow deal, wanting to preserve the security of our data, passwords, …
What is the best protection? Different people say, no one knows who is lying and who is telling the truth.

Hi I have recently been reading some of your TOTALLY AWESOME articles. I don’t know a lot about internet security stuff. My friend put Norton on my laptop for virus protection. If I were to use your stuff will I have to delete Norton? That should tell you how Savy I’m not lol. Thank you kindly.
Your new friend in Ottawa, Canada

thanks from vagelis from greece i want more info for virus like encyclopedia or abook
thank you very much

This is always a smart way to get folks to try. I for one have been on the lookout for a good internet security software. your 6 month trial will be just perfect to check you guys out.

Nice blog by the way.

Hello ladies,

Thank you for the opportunity to win a free license for such a reputable and with strong traditions security program. It’s not a common thing really for ladies to be professionally interested in online security. Good luck with your blog and your work helping people with online security.

Hi, Guy, your effort is really commendable, so is your promotion! I’m ready to stop using any other security suite and start use F-Secure Internet Security 2010, is the best

I use F-Secure almost 2 years & is deeply impressed by its Firewall & full features of parental control. It performs perfect protections to my computer.

As usual the F-Secure Team are out to protect the community from the bad guys.

Well done guys.

nice blog
fsecure detection rate is good but the browser protection slows down browsing experience than usual

This blog is a nice idea, I hope it’ll get popular. There are still way too many people who are not aware of online safety.

Hi,
This offer is yet another example of FSecure bending over backwards to help people.
Well done, you guys are amazing!

Never has so far not used the f-secure, but I hope that now I had the opportunity to try this program. Often I see it in the tests in the upper regions of the effectiveness of detection. I congratulate the blog and an idea for a promotion. I probably frequent visitor to your website. I wish some heat for Helsinki ..

I’ll follow this blog, but as I use Norton at the moment, perhaps you will also tell more about why to change it to F-Secure 🙂

I currently use AVG but have been following @mikkohypponen on Twitter for some time and I am curious about what the F-Secure team and product can do.

please don’t send me your stuff but I just wanted to know I put this on my facebook for my lady friends, I love this approach and it helps them figure shit out on their own and have a female backing of intelligent chicks like the ones involved in this.. I don’t know about anyone else but I think this is awesome, especially for all the ladies that frequent facebook and don’t realize the dangers of all those apps , etc etc..

thanks again!

You have a nice way of not being overly technical in the posts. I am going to pass this onto my wife, she says I speak in a different language. This may help.

Keep up the good work,
Jay

Using this program for over a year and yet I saw nothing lepszego.Deep guard is a true revelation, the only problem that I had it when you start playing Metin2 F-Secure dezaktywowal my pseudo-virus, but the speed with which he did swiadzcy only is this the best program, the fastest and most reliable of which August spotkalem.Ma very much options, and is clear even to the layman.

Big thanks for the licenses which will be given away. To remain secure, I think all an user need is a solid security program + some common sense = 99.9% security 🙂

Yes! More free stuff and I’ll follow you to the flames of…umm…well maybe not that far. But will be following 🙂

Hail Hail! 🙂

The installation package for Internet Security 2010 is very light, only 80 megs.

Cheers,
Hetta

I have heard much good for this software can coexist with an anti-malware as A-squared? Thanks for the availability and clarifications, excellent blog.

I will bookmark this page, if theres a new virus, F secure knows about it, and they will for sure tell us about it on this site i hope 🙂

And since you live in finland, you dont have to worry about overheating servers, just open a window in the server room and the temp will drop to 20 below hihi

Ive tryed alot of AV programs like norton, symantec, mcafee, AVG, panda, eset, and Fsecure, my favorite is fsecure^^

Congratulations on your blog. I will visit more often because i want to learn how to be safe online. Thanks.

Hi its look nice blog . good that its written in easy language for all .

as an exoert ill advice my young brothers to have a look on this blog.

hi people,F-secure is one of the fastest internet security that i have ever used and it light on ram and speed is perfect i hpe i can have it again.I just love this software

I feel that with a promotional offer like this one, people will be more aware of the excellent Security software available for browsing safely on the net.

I have to say, F-secure is really doing great in getting into the social scene.
Something which is sorely needed to counteract the malwaremakers tendency of doing the same… Know so many friends who could use use some basic news and info in the area, be it a blog, youtube videos, microblogging feed, or a facebook group.
Lack of knowledge (mostly simply down to inexperience) is what makes the whole social engineering work.

I bought the program and use. Dvolen I am, I find it more rapid than the previous version. I thank the team who created the program F-Secure 2010

An interesting promotion, this program is really good! Lightweight and effective!

So, added to my feedreader – being curious on what comes 🙂
Thanks for your blog. 🙂

I’m amazed on how many people are now getting infected with a fake antivirus program such as “Windows Antivirus XP 2010” and others. I’ve had three customers contact me in the last week with it installed on their system.
It seems that it is now getting tougher to remove from systems. The latest version I have seen did not install in the usual places – it used to be very easy to remove as long as it was not “deeply” installed for a long period of time. Even the standard virus and malware scans have a hard time cleaning it all up.

Are there any tried and true ways to prevent these types of programs from installing on PCs? It does not seem that anything the user does can prevent these programs from infecting their systems.

Great Blog!

I ready the F Secure postings daily to keep up with the latest threats. The new Internet Security package sounds great!

hi:0 i’m from armenia:) here in armenia few people knows about your goood software.:) you can’t buy it from pc shops…
hope i can get it from here…

An nice blog as i’m very interested in internet security. I hope that i will learn more here. Many people around seems to think that virus won’t happen to them. Sadly.
But i hope such people will find this blog and read and understand what it is. The more we learn about security, less are the chance that we will be infected.

Keep on the good work.

I am a complete doofus when it comes to the computer…I am at the mercy of my husband who sets everything up for me.
Seriously, I do not have any idea what he has set up on my computer as security 😦

I love F-Secure products. It’s solid and reliable, and does not consume all of your PC’s resources like so many other security software products do. There is no need to be so resource hungry today anymore. I wish all developers will take a leaf out of F-Secure’s book and see what it should all be about. Pity that certain security software companies have such a monopoly on the market. Hopefully this will change in the future!

F-Secure was one of the pioneers of PC security,but apps used a lot of system resources.Is that change?I must admit I don´t use F-secure for a long period.Cheers,especially for F-Secure Ladies and not only in Finland is very cold and snowy.When the hell is spring coming?

hello to all the great people that make this offer possible. have heard good things about this program now i have a chance to try it good job!!!

dts really great…………………….. please sned me tooo.kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

F-Security is the best program. I use it alone for a few years. So far no problems .. Version 2010 is really polished and light ..

I’m so glad I’ve found this blog. Interesting comments, news and great
surprise: free-secure-internet, the dream of each surfer. A perfect way to find
loyal users for F-secure as well.

Hi. I try F Secure and I think that is wery strong protection and the scanning time is quite fast.

It is getting increasing difficult to distinguish between genuine websites and malware ridden ones these days. While reading about F-Secure internet security here:-
http://www.f-secure.com/en_EMEA/products/home-office/internet-security/index.html

One thing that caught my attention was this point:-
Browsing Protection identifies dangerous websites and protects your identity online

I have tried norton and avg’s online website blocking components and both of them caused Firefox to crash. I want to ask whether F-Secure is compatible with Firefox’s latest version?

Nice to have this kinda security related blog around with understandable basic language.

Thank you for this great blog I will keep on checking.

Best regards,

F-Secure is considered to be paranoid, but it is a good thing! But the threat does not pass!
..
Sorry. I’m from Russia.

Best regards!

My ISP actually provides F Secure as a security option included in my monthly fee,however,they always have,and continue to be “one version behind”.I would love to try the latest as previous versions were just too “heavy” especially on one of my older rigs.If the new version is truly lighter and faster as advertised,then it’s definitely for me! Thanks for the opportunity to take the new one out for a test drive.

Hi Chuck!

Thanks for the feedback! I will pass it on to our ISP team, they will be very interested to hear this.

Cheers,
Hetta

FSecure internet security is worth the money.Also the mobile security is a must for present generation smart phones.I do have one on my Nokia N 97.

Thank you very much for your promotions. This is the best program I know antyvirusowy. Srdecznie Yours …. F-Sekura is great!

Glad to see a new promo offer from F-Secure ladies…I can’t spit out words…F-Secure is one of the top notch anti-virus…Recently you guys have done a fabulous job…I have tested your software with many of 0-day malwares and i have found that its “Deep Guard” is really showing its muscles. But one problem with F-secure is that it does not have early-loading feature like other AV’s have…But overall i have found it very tough security software….

Looking for license.

Internet is becoming a difficult way for users whenever there are more dangers theft, fraud, espionage, I think the true guardians of our privacy are security products without them we would be truly in great danger either to our data bank or our own privacy on the net
sometimes I think this is becoming a real center of the worst cyber criminals is that instead of having less is more and more and more sophisticated. greetings

todays world requires security and f-secure does it the way you like it… wish to be with your blog

hi Hetta,

it’s great to find an informative forum like Safe and Savvy. And wow, its very kind of you to share a license of i believe is a truly great product that could give maximum computer security. think i’m excited and i can’t wait to give it a try. many thanks in advance.

my kindest regards;

Hi, What a wonderful offer and such a great way to educate people about the importance of online safety which Ive had to learn the hard way after a bad experience. An opportunity to try F-secure IS would really be appreciated.
Look forward to more enlightening pointers in the future on this blog. Keep up the good work !!!

I am a big fan of f secure anti virus . It is nice to create awareness through blog.

kaspersky is slowing down my laptop. i like to try F-Secure and see the difference. i read many encouraging blogs that is why i wish to comeback and share the experience. Mabuhay from the Philippines!

Hi. My laptop is a little bit old and slow. I have been reading about your F-Secure is the fastest antyvirus and good protection at the moment. I did use Avast and Nod32 so far. wish to try yours. Thank You.

I’m a computer repairman and frequently recommend F-Secure software and submit malware through their Sample Analysis System. F-Secure security products are top-notch and their security lab responds far faster than their competitors (Symantec, ESET, Kaspersky, etc), in my experience. They also have Mikko on-board, who is arguably the most knowledgable “security guru” in this field. I assure the other readers of this blog that they will not be disappointed with F-Secure IS 2010. Keep up the great work!

I have tried almost all Internet security suites available on the web. but F-secure 2010 was the best I have tried. really ,in my opinion,F-secure 2010 is the best.

F-Secure is very good for home user’s and the installation package for Internet Security 2010 is very light.

Congrats on your new blog. I’m a computer geek running a tech blog. Though, I prefer Kaspersky but would like to try out F-secure too!

Hi ,

You do a great job, i follow you and a lot of f-secure blog. So , i have a question question . I have read the book from Peter SZor, Art of computer virus research, but i dont really know where to start if i want to do analysis. How i do to get virus, just surf the web???? and after how do i get the virus before its install to my computer to do a good analysis and removal tool. I dont if you understand my point but, anyway continue you good job

Hi Pat!

I would suggest you contact our Lab at weblog[at]f-secure.com. They’ll be able to give you tips on how to become an analyst.

Cheers,
Hetta

What an awesome way to try and keep people up to date and aware of security issues. Keep up the great work.

hi Hetta;

it’s good to find a very informative forum like Safe and Savvy and you guys are great to share a license and i can’t wait to try F-Secure myself.

Kind Regards.

F-Security is the best program. I use it alone for a few years. So far no problems .. Version 2010 is really polished

Good luck with F-Secure.In my country, many people use the F-Secure,so I hope F-Secure can become more well.

Hello everyone.
I was a user of the F-Secure Internet Security 2009 and I was very pleased his actions. I am a Path to the exercise version of 2010. I recommend to all.

Hi, I have used F Secure earlier as well, currently using NIS 2010, will be thankful if I get the key for this IS program

Your blog seems very interesting, and a little less technical than the main blog of F-Secure. (And I didn’t know men could be so interested by PC security!)

Hi,
I could give a try for the new Internet Security. Last time I tried it was in 2006 and it was way too slow.

Hope the blog will be worth reading. Just don’t dumb down things too much!

I have followed your blog and twitter feed for over a year now and find the posts interesting, funny and informative. I’ve just moved from PC to Mac and know of the threats to PC and windows and will be reading F-Secure for help and hints to protect myself on OSX.

Great blog! This might be the first one I actually start following.

One question that I have had since I started using a Mac is if it is necessary to get a virus protection program for it? What’s your opinion?

Thanks!
Marcus

Hi Marcus!

Thanks for your comment. My colleague Sandra will be posting about the need to protect Macs as well. Tune in for that!

Cheers,
Hetta

I’ve been used F-secure internet security for 2 years and never have any problems at all and detected all the viruses. I trust F-secure 100%.

Recommending F-Secure products !!! The 2010 versions of F-Secure security products have made massive performance and protection !!!

I have used F-secure Internet Security since 2007. It’s very good program, but detection has fallen, since F-secure has switched to BitDefender engine. I hope it will be improved in the future!

hey.. Your blog seems very interesting…. u always reply wherever neccesary.. nice interactive session… keep it up…

Hello.
I was a user of the F-Secure Internet Security 2009 and I was very pleased his actions.
thank antivirus is very good

Hi Hetta and all;

My sincere congratulations to your blog! It’s very informative and “open”.
I have not yet tried to use F-Secure security though but am hearing very good reviews from Wilder’s. At the moment and am finishing my Avira license and would be great to try your AV.

Also I am trying to learn more about staying “more” safe in the web and am currently in reading/asking questions on IP anonimity and stuff..how safe..how it is and stuff..I’ll be happy to write you guys about inquiries and other stuff one of these days.

Congratulations again!

Damien

Ohh, this is the best security app I ever seen! All the best to all people involved in this project!

F-secure is one of the top 10 antivirus programs. Good to see women folk come together on a website after Women’s day….

Hi , very glad about this …..and what can i say about this amazing software .I use it for 4 years and never let me down. Well dome ! F-Secure !

Cheers,
Stefan

Lots of security suits are out there, there is F-secure,ESET smart security,Kaspersky IS, Bitdefender,Outpost secuirt suite, avira,premium security,G-DATA,DR.web,and,of course,Norton IS. every security suite has benifits and drawbacks.Norton is the editor choise of PC mag. for this year it’s so light ,so powerful but autorun viruses so you will need to has anti-autorun virus when using this AV.Kaspersky is also a powerful anti-virus,the same for avira.ESET smart secutiy is one of the fastest AV avilable on the web but it leaks lots of viruses.also bitdefender is a powerful AV. G-DATA is a most powerful AV as it has two engins bitdefender engin a Avast engin.it had several problems in the past as it is too slow but 2010 version is much faster, it has a little drawback that it checks every downloaded link and every download which takes much time.

F-secure is a mazing AV,the new designed interface is great also its firewall is so stronge ,and it catches bad cookies and viruses and trojans,.. and above all that it is too light.F-secure 2010 is the one I prefere.

Hi its look nice blog . good that its written in easy language for all .

as an exoert ill advice my young brothers to have a look on this blog

I think that F-sequre is qute good antivirus, so i should try it on Russian teritory!!! Thank’s 🙂
Best reguards!!!

Hello everyone. For two years I am using F-Secure and I am very happy. The program is very good and I will continue using it. I recommend to all.

I know that F Secure Internet Security is a very good antivirus. I want, if posible, I use (try). I hope that after testing it will send my impressions.
Regards,
Petre

Hi, I feel it is important to be updated with the latest information about technology and I hope your blog will contribute largely to enhance our knowledge through online activities.

Older versions used to be a resource hog , but with the 2010 version I heard that it is very light for a multi-engine AV.

I love your software, but i wish that the http scanner doesnt slow down the youtube videos anymore.But once again, your software is fantastic.

Good offer and interesting posting as well. One of the best all around security solutions. Thanks.

I realy like F-secure, it is a good security suite ,quite light for what it offers.I apreciate your initiative and hope to hear only good things about this blog in the future.

i never used this antivirus,i hope that is good,now i have comodo and i want to try and this one

Hi! I read a couple of your posts and i think you address very interesting topics, since computer security is so important nowadays. I have been using F-Secure for a couple of months and i think it’s brilliant! i especially liked the fact that it was able to disinfect a number of USB drives that i stopped using after trying to clean them with other security programs. I recommend it highly to all my friends, it’s a great program 🙂 Keep up the great work!

This is really a generous offer by F-secure. When companies like Kaspersky attach many restriction with their very few free offers, it is a real example for them to understand that business does not discourage magnanimity.

Its never to much information about security issues. Its important that we all have our pc´s safe, whith all personal information. And a great software like F-Secure help us.
Cheers
Miguel

Hi,

Every body concerns security.but the free world of internet some times make us unsafe browsing . we use the virus scanners(how good they are)but our browsing habits make vulnerable to threats.

I used F secure two years back it works good but removal faced problems..

now i am using k7 total security

Nice to see some lighter and not so serious blog. Hope I can get the key because I want to test it. 😀

Hi ya folks.
A friend of mine uses F-Secure due to the fact he is with Optus Internet in Australia and they offer it to all their customers as a free service for joining up with them. Seems like a very capable and worthy security package that gives good protection in all departments. My mate was a Trend Micro boy but now prefers the smoothness that F-Secure offers his computer and has had no real complaints with them.It has put a smile on his dial and he seems a happy chappy.I myself have not tried F-Secure so cant really say much about its ability to perform against the nasties hunting us down.In the long run its what one feels is comfortable to use and does the job required. Any way have a good day to all and live it the best we can. Cheers.

Heard nothing but good things about f-secure last version. Though some say it uses different engines for each module(antivir, spyware, …) and when they load the computer slows down. Is it true?

F-Security is the best program. I use it alone for a few years. So far no problems .. Version 2010 is really polished.Good ones.Enjoy it!

Hi girls ! Sincere congratulations F-Secure Ladies for your blog.
All the best from Romania.

could you tell me where can I get independent comparison between your product against similar others?

Hi Rendaga!

Thanks for your question. There are two independent test organizations called AV-Test.org and AV-Comparatives that do unbiased test of the different security suites on offer. However, their reviews can be quite technical.

Also, many computer magazines will review security suites as well and, depending on the magazine, these can be easier to understand.

Cheers,
Hetta

I am pretty happy with the product, which I tried as a trial version. Internet Security is a MUST for surviving on the dangerous web. In any case, we can not survive without the web and hence it goes without saying that F-Sec Internet Security is a MUST. Please give me the key fo rthe product. Keep up the good work. All the best.

Actually, F Secure is one of the best options to protect our PC. Not for of raising positions in comparatives.

It is an excellent option to be kept to except of malware.

Hello,
Among my family security is sfuff that is left to dad . The kids don’t see any real need to run virus scanner or fix the registry. If I mention any windows update needed to run they maybe nod in between important chit chat in FB or in gaming experience.

My question to you: How could you make security more ‘Sexy’ for the adults and more fun for the kids so that everyone would enjoy upgrading their FW products and Linux boxes?

Your picture is a step in that road?

Best,
blogtheristo
Ps. Among other stuff I use F-Secure products too..

It is really good to have this kind of security related blog .

Thank you for this great blog I will keep on checking.

Best regards,

internet Security Software is necessary for all computer because cyber threats are increase heavily. I am using a squared anti malware 4.5 but its licences is over in march 34. so now i want to try F-Secure Internet Security 2010.

I wonder if more mature users who did not grow up with the internet or pc are being considered. Some people simple have the pc and internet for emails, on-line shopping, on-line banking and browsing. They just need to simply know how to do the basics safely in words they understand.

also it is very necessary to know the security is the main aim so we deem to participate you guys

Hello there, Wonder if the company could make less MB but more SECURED computers .. i’d like to try other internet security for a change …..

Hi everyone , i like this blog because here i can find if my pc is protected from threats and i think that i can learn something from this blog .

Cheers , DyTzZzU from Romania .

Congratulations on an open blog. And want to thank you for a good opportunity to
Looks like a good day, please

I believe this is a great approach to aware people about Internet Security. One can not get the idea about real protection from viruses and spams unless he or she uses full version of a Internet security program which is very well know for its reputation. Keep Going. All the best.

Hi girls;

Good to see women who are very security wise! I do not get that here from where I am. I’m really eager to try F-Secure so please count me in. Your blog on tips for staying safe especially on Twitter is great. Keep up the good work!

Cheers!

I tested version 2010 and it is way better than the previous version. However i think f-secure should build an antivirus engine of their own . good luck.

Hi,
I think the most important to be secure is that the program must be easy for the user but not for the intrusion.

Hi Hetta
Lately I have read some good reviews about the F-secure AV software, and would certainly like to check it out.

Let’s say I install two AV softwares, use one for real time protection and the other once a week to see if the other had missed something. Would there be any problem doing that? Could F-secure be used either way, i.e.’ real time or otherwise? Also, could I selectively use F-Secure for real time protection, e.g. use all other features except the Firewall (I use Online Armor for that)
Thanks

I an currently using f-secure internet security 2010.I actually upgraded from version 2009. I discovered that f-secure 2010 no longer use kaspersky scanning engine but turn to bitdefender. Everything works smoothly except for the default option to scan known file only.Even though this helps to make the scan faster but as a long time user of f-secure, I will hope that it can check every single file by default.I am not sure how this 6-month license will help to increase my subscription as I have more than 3 months to go(if I get this)…but this will certainly extend my subscription, at least.

I have to say that, F-Secure is one of the best app on earth to help you get peace of mind in dealing with virus, spyware, etc nowadays, and I am longing to get in in my laptop.

Thanks so much for your generousity.

Tommy Lee

I have used F-secure Internet Security since 2007. It’s very good program, but detection has fallen, since F-secure has switched to BitDefender engine. I hope it will be improved in the future!

i used FS since 2009 version but this 2010 is better in perfomance, stability and detection and wan it thanks a lot UPS

Intresting Blog. Will bookmark.

Currently own Kapersky IS 2010 . but would like to try F-Secure IS to feel the difference.
Had tried long time back ~5 yrs or so F-secure.

It’s not easy these days to make a decent security program that is effective,as I’m sure u know.I think the hard bit is making the program work well but not use up resources too much.
One has to be careful these days on the net,there is more dodgy goings on than most people realize,and so easy to get infected by drive by and malware.

if am not too late i would like free key too & I’ve definitely bookmarked this site for the future

Hi Hetta, I Know I am a bit late here…However I would like to try F-secure Internet Security…..Wish you all the best…

I live in the USA & have a few friends who are of Finnish extraction. They are all hard working & very successful. I keeping with the weather from Finland they live in places like the Upper Penninsula of Michigan or Wisconsin. as far as F Secure is concerned I have always liked the Suite but somehow never quite adopted it completely. Its a very nice suite but a little much to run on my old computer. I would try it out again however.

F-Security is the best program. I use it alone for a few years. So far no problems .. Version 2010 is really polished

Well ,I didn’t got the key cause my comment wasn’t posted,anyway nice blog and a very good security suite.Cheers all!

Thanks Nina for coming to Safe and Savvy and be sure to check us in the future as well. We’ll be sure to have new offers. 🙂

Cheers,
Hetta

I’m sure I’ll be checking your blog in the future too, it’s important to stay safe online

I have never used F-secure, but have heard about it from my friends/internet. The trusted one and used by myself also is Norton. The only problem I face is that Norton makes the PC very slow, other wise it detects malwares/virus/trozans nicely. What about F-Secure, in terms of its effect on speed of computers.

Hi Michelle!

Actually, the F stands for pretty much anything you want it to stand for. 🙂 We leave that to our customers’ imagination!

Cheers,
Hetta

Hi Hetta …

For me, this blog setup seems perfect, soft theme color and everything is placing well. I hope the contents will be pretty as the blog is.

And for f-Secure, of course it is one of the best computer security software. No doubt about it!

Bye …

Hi Hisham!

Thanks for your encouragement! We’ll be sure to strive for pretty – and useful – content as well. 🙂

Cheers,
Hetta

F-Secure is a fairly well-known security company, it has a period of time I use the F-Secure on my computer, it does very reliable. I am a friend from Taiwan, I am sorry my English is not good.

hi everyone, i just installed fsecure antivirus in my E63 mobile yesterday, it is a very good antivirus with firewall, antitheft and malaware protection it is quite good and i like it.i just want to encourage every one to use fsecure antivirus for maximum protection.but my license is remaining 29days,please fsecure team please can you people help with a 3 months license.thanks

Hi mnolwuck!

Thanks for your comment and to all our other over 800 commenters as well! We were thrilled to see our new blog create so much interest!

However, our offer of Internet Security 2010 has now come to an end. The first commenters will receive their key codes by email in the coming days.

But keep coming back, we’ll be sure to have more exciting sweepstakes and giveaways in the future as well! 🙂

Hetta

Hi Marc!

Thanks for your suggestion. I will be sure to pass it on to our development team.

Cheers,

Its good to c ya people showing concern towards online security.U r really doing a great job.Generally what people look in an antivirus software is less noise to be created by the software.Less disturbance nd more work must be a ideal way for an antivirus.

I’ve alredy tried this software and I think it’s very good.
I will tell wevery my friend about this programm.

If I took the oppotunity to use I will be happy.

Hi hatta,
I’m wondering for safe site.
If web-page is too many flash ad and link is harmful, isn’t it?
I’m weak at English…
But I’m know that harmful or safe site is contains.

If what I read is true about being redesigned where it has improved performance, including 70 % less memory consumption and 60 % faster scanning this I want. Please

I have already used a trail version of F-Secure Internet Security and I found it very friendly ( and we all know its value ) but I would have liked to set a password so to lock down my security settings. This unluckily was impossible. I think that without setting a password the internet Security isn’t so secure.

Its good to c ya people showing concern towards online security.U r really doing a great job.Generally what people look in an antivirus software is less noise to be created by the software.Less disturbance nd more work must be a ideal way for an antivirus.

F-secure is just the best security solution ever with theese new technology we will be safe always

thanks F-Secure

it’s good to find a very informative forum like Safe and Savvy and you guys are great to share a license and i can’t wait to try F-Secure myself.

It’s great to see F-Secure opening up another channel to communicate with end-users. Although a Mac user with alternative security, my Windows virtual machines still need protection, and I’ve always preferred F-Secure since visiting your offices in Helsinki and meeting your development team.

P.

Hi folks,
I remember the good old days of win98 when boot sector viruses ran rampant. while everyother antivirus package couldn’t remove it, FProt(Dos version from fsecure) could remove it safely & completely. Now today we all need such a reliable & powerful tool such as Fsecure Int sec suite.
Believe me, I find it hard to find a retail copy in my country (india) to pick off the shelf. Missing a great product. Anyhow kudos to u gals n guys in Fsecure team. Keep up the goodwork

I’m glad i found this blog I’ve been looking for an alternative anti virus solution that is light & has all the security in one package. I noticed other security suites were all bloated and over 100 mb in download size. this coming in at 54mb makes it the lightest around. i def would love to try it out for 6 months and see what kind of punch it can pack in the anti virus world.

mark me down for that free license! have a great day ladies.

I was using F Secure through Optus and much satisfied over the performance but now I’m after new activation. I reckon F Secure is the most secure way to keep your system safe.

Thank you http://afublog.com have the opportunity to use my F-Secure Internet Security.

I’m infected and I know F-Secure Internet Security is a very good anti-virus program I’ve ever used. It can kill virus Folder.exe, Kido Virus,….

hey, nice blog. well i used antivirus mainly not the internet security, but got a headache with false AV attacks recently, so internet security is a must..

Hi ,
I have f-secure on my nokia phone and i want to try this software to my computer because is too good and give a safe protection from all the virus of internet

i am exited to get f- secure key and standing in que for second time distribution for my new sony e14 laptop.
thx for grt service

Super protection package! Very good antivirus. Well, that could have the package for free for 6 months!

I am currently using Kaspersky Internet security & I would defintely love to try out F-Secure.
Thanks.

March 2010 comparatives av F SECURE among the best we can ask for more year after year always among the best

As more and more countries get better and faster internet speeds how safe will the internet be? I would also like to suggest that there will be more people with computers and mobile devices in the next five to ten years too. This may in effect spread virus and malware faster? How much faith can a person put in there computer’s security.

Thank you for your amazing event.

I heard that F-secure was one of the most trustworthy security programme in the world. I appreciate the opportunity to try North European Anti-virus tool. Thanks… 🙂

I visited your blog and consider it extremely useful for those who care about the security of your personal information. I intend to continue visiting him regularly to keep me updated on issues of information security. Congratulations and thank you for the excellent content!

I always see the message ” Virus definitions are old or updates are old ” even though my settings are for automatic updates and I am online all the time. Is there something that I need to do ?

Hi T Srikanth!

I contacted our support and they said that the most common issue is that the system clock on your computer is showing the wrong time. So first check your Windows clock on the lower right of your screen, double click it and make sure the date is correct.

If that doesn’t help, then there’s a support article available which should help you fix the issue. One is located here http://www.f-secure.com/kb/1736 and a related one here: http://www.f-secure.com/kb/7115

Let me know if you find your answer.

Everyone I know rely on Norton internet security.
I think that F-Secure could be the replacement of Norton.
I hope this F-Secure is useful and helpful to this unsafe internet seccurity environment.
Cheers!!

During the usage of the trail version, I’ve never experience such qualified software for securing my PC, WELL DONE F-Secure, please Keep protecting us

I’ve tried many different products…What I love at F-Secure is the interface ..I’ve never seen one like this before ..And also has a good scanning engine…Sorry for bad enlish…

kaspersky is so much better comapred to f secure. in terms of detection rate . a new virus was detected by kaspersky in under an hour while f secure took 6 hours and avg 8 hours.

Hi Salman!

Thanks for your comment and good on Kaspersky for being so quick! Detection times vary a great deal depending on the situation, sometimes one antivirus vendor is quicker than the other, sometimes it’s the other way round.

Something that is not that widely known is that antivirus companies share all their virus samples. Every day. Automatically. We do this so that our customers stay safe. We also cooperate with the authorities to help them catch the bad guys who are writing the viruses.

Our CRO Mikko Hyppönen said it nicely in a column he wrote for the Japanese IT magazine “Software Design” in August 2009:

“You see, normal software companies do not have enemies; just competitors. If you’re in the business of writing, for example, Word processors you don’t have enemies. In our business, it’s different. Obviously we have competitors, but they are not our main problem. Our main problem is the virus writers, the bot authors, the spammers and the phishers. They hate us. They often attack us directly. And it’s our job to try to keep them at bay and do what we can to protect our customers from them.”

“In this job, all the vendors are in the same boat. This is why we help each other. And this is why I believe we are not losing the war against online criminals.”

Hi Ladies
Its nice to see the women in the world keeping a strong grip on things,where would us men be without you. Its nice to have a blog and discuss things.Myself I switched over to F-Secure a couple of years back all because my work place uses it for its security. Found it very user friendly and I like the computer check you can do to keep things up to date. Keep it going there
are plenty out there who don’t want you to.
Kind Regards
Mick
P.S How about adding something extra to your security….abit like systems mechanic ?
