The F secure in the Spectrum security suite is blocking a file that I need to download. How do I allow the permissions to be changed?

    Hi @BobK45, welcome to our community!

    F-Secure evaluates the safety of websites and blocks them if suspicious as part of the Secure Browsing feature of our security suite. You can turn this off by going into settings, selecting "Secure Browsing" on the left and then change the on toggle to off. Make sure to turn it back on when you are done. You can select "View website exceptions" and enter a URL to never be blocked. Please only do either if you are confident the site/server is safe and still run a virus scan on anything you download.
