As my kids get more and more into technology, I find myself thinking more about things like family internet security software! We had the chance to try out F-Secure SAFE as part of a sponsored Whynonmom.com AllStar campaign which helped me answer some questions about what our family needs. All opinions are my own but I hope I can help you answer the question I asked myself.
Do You Need Family Internet Security Software?
I know keeping our devices safe and protected is important. But as the kids get older, I started to wonder if our needs were changing and started thinking about family internet security software that would keep us even more protected.
Recently I shared 5 Ways to Keep the Family Computer Safe and discovered that F-Secure SAFE seemed to address most of the areas I think are important. Safety is huge for me when it comes to letting my kids use technology. Since tech is a huge part of their lives (we’ve even got a WiFi enabled refrigerator), internet safety is a big deal too!
So answer the questions I asked myself to see if it might work for your family too!
Do you have multiple devices?
If your house is like ours, you’ve got so many different devices. We’ve got a desktop computer, a few laptops, some tablets, and our smartphones. So we need a solution that can help us protect all of our different devices. I have a feeling we’re not the only family like that either!
F-Secure SAFE met this need for us because it can protect all of your devices! It works for PCs, Macs, smartphones, and tablets making it super convenient!
Do you need virus protection?
We all need virus protection but if you’re looking for a solution that can cover all of your devices and provides some other features, it can be a hunt to find something that works. This is actually the main reason we wanted to try using F-Secure SAFE. We needed a new virus protection solution! Now we’re protected from viruses, trojans, and spyware which is great because we’ve had trojans take out a desktop before!
Do you need to secure your home network?
When our new home WiFi network was set up, the tech went ahead and got it all secured for us. But if you’ve haven’t done this yet then make it a priority! The last thing you want is your neighbor using your internet or some less than friendly person getting on!
Do you need even more protection?
If you’re looking for additional protection for times when you’re doing things like banking or shopping online, downloading, watching videos or listening to music, or just browsing the web then F-Secure SAFE is probably a fit for you. This is one thing I loved about it because let’s be honest — I do a lot of shopping online and I want our information to be safe!
Do you need it to be easy to install and operate?
I consider myself kind of tech-savvy but I still get frustrated easily when something is challenging to even get up and running. I like things to be easy, it’s true. So I was thrilled to discover that I could manage our devices with one subscription and pretty much just a flip of a virtual on/off switch!
If you answered yes to even one of these questions, I recommend giving F-Secure SAFE a try. If you answered yes to more than one, then you could be like our family and discover a great answer to your tech protection needs for the whole family!
