Difference between two browser extentions

SteelCat W/ Member Posts: 1 Security Scout


I have just installed WithSecure Elements EPP for computers and it offered me to install a browser addon "Browser protection by F-secure for Chrome, Edge and Firefox, however it didn't offer it for Opera.

If I search Opera Store I cannot find any extensions by F-secure or WithSecure, but I did find:
"Browsing Extension by WithSecure". Open Add-in it to Opera it displays an error.

  1. What is the difference beetwen those 2?
  2. Why is Browser protection by F-secure not avaliable if I searhc the store manually?
  3. Can you help me with the error in Opera?

I'm attaching screen shots.

Thank you and Best regards,

    Hi @SteelCat

    Thank you for reaching out the WithSecure Community,

    The Browsing Protection extension has undergone a name change. Previously, it was called “Browsing protection by F-Secure” for Elements Endpoint Protection products. However, starting in early March 2024, WithSecure products will switch to using the new name: "Browsing Protection by WithSecure. You can read more about this change from the Elements Endpoint Protection from Changelogs post here.

    We currently officially support the following Supported browsers:

    • Microsoft Edge.
    • Chrome, two latest major versions.
    • Firefox, two latest major versions.

    I hope the above is useful to you. Should you need any further questions or concerns, you can reply here.
