    In the bottom right status bar of the Windows Agent you will see rules update date.

    @Darren Williams

    Hi,
    as i have a lot of different security apps installed on my galaxy i noticed System UI is accessing my camera and a lot of other system apps.
    To know that i use SafeDot pro. One question for you. If any system or user app is getting video, voice or screenshots is this data safe on my smartphone while using BlackFog privacy for android? I use the latest version.
    Am i protected even if google wants to exfiltrate my data to their servers?
    Thanks!

    @Darren Williams: It's very quiet on the BlackFog front, are things OK, I'm not complaining just concerned: Paul

    @JOHNoff We will see it when they start sending data off the device. We have some newer features coming that will even tell you app it is soon as well.

    @PwT We are pretty busy on the next releases so stay tuned.... Sometimes quiet is not a bad thing, just means we are very focused on the next releases.

    @lucd yes. Just put in the name of the exe as "zoom.exe" or whatever it is, but remember this can be quite dangerous too if attackers start masquerading as other apps, which is very common. Note this is only on Windows, not Android.

    thanks Darren but please fix the auto update feature, it only allows of rules updates and not programme updates, this is especially annoying on Android, and no I don't want to re-register to have to download when the programme is installed and activated
    I tried to download the programme on android (I have version 4.5) and it points to your site, on which I am already signed , despite this when I clicked on download it forces me to sign in again even though I am signed), anyway could not download anything for android
    on windows I have to rely on external websites for a programme I paid (maybe these sites host malware who knows)
    visualization of your site on android simply put sucks, I needed to opt in desktop site to be able to see anything
    - the update system is clunky and it doesn't work (windows/android), millions of programmes are able to auto update no problem but this one doesn't

    on a different note, thanks for your 4.9 version it's impressive so far

    I couldn't update BF on one machine because of software conflict and could not find a way to download it from my account or the Enterprise Console. This left me with the only choice to sign up for a trial and so I could download an installer.

    Surely our account or Console should have a link to download the latest version. Actually, I thought the Console did but I couldn't find it last night my time.

    Note that Android now updates the program automatically when there is a new release already. It's just we haven't made any lately so you cant see it yet :)

    Hi Krusty, yes the console does have a direct link in the Settings > Global menu option. There is also a direct link from your store account too, and you can always do what you did as well.

    Thanks Darren.

    I couldn't for the life of me find that section of the Console. I also looked in the store account but missed the link there too. Not to worry, I'm all caught up now.

    Cheers.

    so 4.5 on android is the latest, both my and my fiancee have 4.5 on android, i click update but I get rule updates . Btw how do I can solve dual boot license problem: is the license for 1 device or 1 os installs , I do dual boot for security maintenance reasons so I have win 10 with blackfog and win 11 without blackfog on same machine, I would like to have blck on both os on same machine, which you can verify by ip or mac address, or machine ID

    @Krusty Yes you are on Enterprise so use the console, or just wait for it to update. BTW a reboot will also update it as well. Normally its just silent.

    @lucd It's for the number of activations and we normally allow spares. Just email support if you have none left and they can sort it out for you.

    @JOHNoff We have a number of releases under development right now. Only so many resources, but we planning to expand these teams for even faster cycles soon. Android is being updated along with all the others this year. Just a few strategic projects slowing us down as you can see with the ARM release and some other new ones coming.

    How many countries are blocked by default in Geofence at the moment according to the update ?!
    Can you add a defaults button for Geofence please ?!

    Best regards.

    @acid king There are currently 13 and yes a defaults option would be wise. We actually thought there was one.... so nice pickup. Its only in the Eneterprise console right now. For reference the defaults should be as follows:
    Armenia
    Belarus
    China
    Iran
    Kyrgyzstan
    Kazakhstan
    Moldova
    North Korea
    Russia
    Tajikistan
    Turkmenistan
    Ukraine
    Uzbekistan

    Why would I get this 'Anonymous Network detected' event: Unsafe connection to 164.132.67.27. Blocking. Process -> msedge.exe Port -> 22067 PID -> 23480

    MS Edge installed, but not being used at the time?
