Since the time that we launched F-Secure SENSE, our security router for your connected home, it has remained important to us that we keep in touch with our user community about the specifics of the product. SENSE is, after all, one of the first routers designed to protect IoT devices, and it may take a bit of digging to wrap one’s head around everything that SENSE is capable of.
Our answer to answering our community’s questions about SENSE was to create a straightforward FAQ video series on YouTube, which we’ve appropriately named #AskSENSE. We’ve answered a diverse collection of questions related to SENSE through this series, so we wanted to round them up in a single blog post for our readers to browse through.
Of course, if you’d like to check out the entire #AskSENSE playlist, you can do so on our YouTube channel. Without further ado, here are our top #AskSENSE video picks:
Setting up SENSE is easier than you think. You first need to install the SENSE app on your smartphone or tablet (choose between the Android & iOS versions of the app). The app guides you through the initial setup, during which you connect the SENSE router to your existing home router and create a new secure Wi-Fi network. Once you’ve got the SENSE network up and running, you can move all your connected devices to your SENSE network just as you would be joining any other Wi-Fi network.
It’s important that SENSE ensures that users don’t browse on unsafe websites while, at the same time, it manages to respect users’ privacy. In this video, Tuomas explains how SENSE’s technology makes both of these things possible.

(Note that these features will continue to expand as the product team works tirelessly to roll out new, exciting releases of the product!)
