Editors' review

F-Secure Internet Security 2015 offers a reconfigured installation process, safer search filtering, and a prescan utility to help with those tough cleanup jobs. Also new is the F-Secure Safe bundle, which aims to secure all your devices (PC, Mac, Android, iOS, and Windows Phone 8), including measures for managing a missing phone.

Pros

Quick and effective setup: Installing Internet Security 2015 is a breeze. F-Secure prompts you with a one-click process. You can also install browser plug-ins for Browser Protection and F-Secure Search, a search result filter. With the 2015 edition, F-Secure introduces a prescan cleanup tool that searches for and removes malware upon the initial installation, easing cleanup on compromised systems.

No more launchpad: You no longer have to dig around to open a menu, as the main application now presents a clear and straightforward UI.

Parental settings let you set a usage limit: With the Browsing Protection plug-in, you can manage and limit the search results of popular search engines for individual Windows users.

Lightweight protection: F-Secure scored 99 percent in real-world protection tests from independent lab AV-Comparatives, so F-Secure maintains its reputation as a consistently reliable Internet security suite that takes very little toll on system performance. We had no trouble running a quick scan while performing everyday tasks. But if you don't want to be interrupted by scans while playing games or watching movies, Internet Security has a game mode.

Cons

Bland UI: By dropping the launchpad, F-Secure fell back to the traditional text menu and basic buttons for initiating tasks. Its utilitarian design is functional but bland.

Quirky browser protection: Although the suite is capable of censoring Web content, Browser Protection behaved unpredictably during our tests. The app warned of a supposedly blocked site, but we were able to get access. Protections were designed for popular browsers like Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome. More tech-savvy kids may attempt to circumvent Browser Protection through other third-party browsers, but won't be able to bypass the manually set Internet blocking feature.

Bottom Line

Internet Security 2015's straightforward UI and high security performance score show that F-Secure's mission is usability and efficiency. Additional features like Safe Search and Parental Controls are nice touches, and prescan utilities are helpful for infected PCs. Ultimately, F-Secure Internet Security is a no-nonsense security suite that just works.

    "Worst grapich user interface on the market"

    July 15, 2014   |   By Bambino Pucko

    Version: F-Secure Internet Security 2014

    Pros

    the antivirus scores high in all independent antivirus-test sites. When it comes to protection we can trust in F-secure.

    Cons

    This software its not made fo the end users. Its a lab product made in a laboratory with no connection to the customers. As example you dont know when the software will update itself, everything is almost completely hidden from the user.

    Summary

    When it comes to protection we can trust in F-secure. but its not enough. The company need to make a better grapich user interface in next version, made for the end user, current version feels uncomplete and have a unclear design.

    "Fake F-Secure controls"

    February 12, 2014   |   By CarstenHolz

    Version: F-Secure Internet Security 2008

    Pros

    It has reported a dozen times in three years that it has blocked viruses.

    Cons

    I have disabled scheduled scanning and I am not running a manual scan, and yet almost every day F-Secure starts scanning. It uses 10-15% of the CPU and runs the CPU at between 95 and 100% of maximum frequency (the only other program running is typically MS Word). This makes my computer crash (presumably due to overheating, after the fan has been in overdrive for ten minutes). Virtually every day.

    Summary

    F-Secure takes over my computer and there is no way I can prevent from doing so except by uninstalling it.

    "The best I have tried"

    January 25, 2014   |   By oboist3

    Version: F-Secure Internet Security 2014

    Pros

    Quick, resource friendly, minimalist interface, unobtrusive. No issues so far. I like that it incorprates Windows Firewall and adds protection on top.

    Cons

    Would like to be able to secure the software from change with a security feature or password. Also would like to see a rescue disc created.

    Summary

    I think that this is a very good solution and easy enough for all to use.

    "Best antivirus outside US"

    October 09, 2013   |   By dumdumm

    Version: F-Secure Internet Security 2014

    Pros

    this software is impressive when it comes to performance and overall security. Light on resources for the computer and no troubels I encounter yet at all.

    Cons

    Nothing so far

    Summary

    this software is better than any of the competitors, they almost all are bigger files, heavier on resources, some of them needs dual antivirus scanners and HIPS to be eqvivalent when it comes to protection to this F-secure. I can recommend this software if you want spend money for an Internet security suite.

    "Canceled installation"

    October 09, 2013   |   By Twistedcan

    Version: F-Secure Internet Security 2014

    Pros

    Don't know

    Cons

    Removes your other security software.

    Summary

    I never installed this program. I cancelled when it began to remove my other security software. I get somewhat sceptical when trial software makes changes to my software set-up. I always wonder why some software needs to remove the competition.

    "Brought my business laptop to its knees"

    July 12, 2013   |   By arrowsputnik

    Version: F-Secure Internet Security 2013

    Pros

    Simple interface

    Cons

    This shut down my computer response to a useless crawl. Never had lag like this since Windows 97 on dial up. Consistently failed updates and failed to even open (and when it did it took three minutes while overheating my unit). Every aspect of my pc was render painfully slow an non productive. Absolutely brutal.
    Side note - I don't own a relic with no processing power either...Trust don't buy this program.

    Summary

    Was back up and running after uninstall. Working on getting my money back now.
