This topic provides information about the product’s gaming mode.

The automatic gaming mode requires that you have Windows 10 version 1809 (“October 2018 Update”) or later running on your computer.

The gaming mode is enabled in the product by default. As soon as the product detects that you are running a game on your computer, it automatically stops all scheduled scans and suspends product and database updates. This reduces the product’s impact on your computer and network use. It frees up more system resources for computer games while still maintaining the essential functionality of the product. The gaming mode turns off automatically when you stop playing the game.

Note: If you switch from the game to another open app on your computer for more than 60 seconds by using the Alt+Tab key combination, the product assumes that you have stopped playing the game and turns the gaming mode off.

If you don’t want the gaming mode to turn on automatically, turn it off in the following way:

  1. Open F-Secure SAFE from the Windows Start menu.
  2. On the main view, select the  menu button.
  3. Select Settings > Scanning settings.
  4. Select Edit settings.

    Note: You need administrative rights to change the settings.

  5. Turn off gaming mode.

Now the gaming mode will not turn on automatically.

Note: On the Settings view, you can see the last time when the gaming session was started.
