peteyt gave kudos to Marcos in Eset Push Notification Service - problem when offline
ESET Push Notification Service has been used in business products for years already and now it's also leveraged by consumer products, to communicate with my.eset.com, Anti-Theft servers, licensing servers, etc.
As mentioned above, in future versions it will be possible to disable the notifications when EPNS is not available.
peteyt received kudos from notimportant in Is it safe to install Lightroom Mod APK 2021 for Android?
I should add that anything that is cracked that appears safe, could be dangerous, even if not detected.
The problem is that as these are from unoriginal sources, you never know what they have done to it e.g. included hidden extras. Cracks are often used for malware distribution

I dont think this is the right place to ask about "cracked" apk files 😬
peteyt received kudos from Peter Randziak in High use of Memory by ESET Internet Security
Eset do recommended people use pre release updates on non production computers. The reason is often they will release new versions for people to test, often fixing issues, and by multiple people using it they can test if it works and also if there are any compatibility issues
E.g. they could release a pre release update to the main stable channel that could actually have issues but they weren't detected because not many people had used that version. Eset does have quality control, checks etc. But issues can happen, things missed etc.

I wonder why people open RDP to all , when sometimes it's companies that do that.. and even though you are opening it to all and still using a password like
Running unpatched systems that are open to all with weak passwords, that is really bad.
And if it had to be open to all , some products need to be used for protection , like an IPS or some NGFW and a looooong and complicated password is also needed , I wonder what kind of logic is this
Firewalls are crying in the corner..

Have you previously backed up settings and then reinstalled eset and then loaded the backed up settings?
I could be wrong @Marcos but if my memory serves me correct there was a problem with this setting in the past.
It wasn't being properly backed up/restored. When someone backed up the setting and then loaded it it would show as disabled but the user had to enable and then disable again as it wasn't properly saved
Just found the link I remembered. Not sure if it's any good or related

I did get the same alert I believe yesterday and I believe it was at the same time I'd opened steam but it went off straight away. Haven't been able to reproduce as of yet though
peteyt received kudos from Aryeh Goretsky in What is the difference between an original ESET license and a pirated ESET license?
One thing that happens on this forum is a lot of users post that their license has been flagged. This normally happens when someone or some site sells a license to more people than the license is designed for.
What seems to happen is the seller will buy a license for 1 single user and resell it to multiple users but as the license is for one user eset's systems will automatically detect it is being used on multiple devices and block it. For this reason eset always recommends users buy directly from their website and not other sites Including the likes of Amazon and Ebay who have users selling things.
In general a lot of software can be obtained illegally via cracks but this is very risky as cracks are a popular method for distributing malware. The problem is you don't know what they have added to the program
peteyt received kudos from Prayer1 in YEARS Of Eset Internet Security, will I have to move on? HELP APPRECIATED!
As mentioned i don't use the password manager as I have a lifetime license with another one. You could always download a trial of the premium version and see if you prefer it. Same with eset mobile. I belive it can be purchased possibly through the play store but as a customer you could contact sales and maybe they'd be able to sort a deal with premium to.
As for chrome as I mentioned last time best thing to do is download and give it a try and see if you prefer it over Firefox. Everyone has their own favourites and some people don't trust Google. At least by trying you can choose what works best for you

peteyt received kudos from Aryeh Goretsky in suggestion for all eset products
The only UI change I wouldn't say no to and I've brought up before, is allowing some customisation e.g. when you right click the eset icon e.g. allowing for gamer mode or other frequently used options to be there.
While off topic I've also been wondering lately if there would be a better way to troubleshoot eset issues. Currently when eset doesn't work and people post on here a mod will often ask to try and disable a certain feature and if that doesn't work possibly ask to disable something else. I was wondering if a kind of troubleshoot wizard could help where the user could use this and the wizard would try different things e.g. disable different things, and at least find a possible feature that is causing the issue although I don't know if this would work and probably be too complicated
peteyt received kudos from Aryeh Goretsky in Cit0Day Breach
Just thought I'd share this. Troy Hunt via his Have I been pwned site has shared a large breach, which appears to be a collection of multiple breaches, collected together. He appears to have tested some, which appear correct, but due to the large size of the data he cannot confirm all. There's also the possibility that some are from previous known breaches, and he does note some of the websites involved no longer exist.
It's also good to know the latest version of Eset with the version 2 password manager can notify you of breaches in regards to accounts you have saved on there. This is something I can see happening more and more.

A dark mode option is in consideration for a subsequent release of the software, however, there is no specific time associated with the request.
Keep in mind that this type of change is not a matter of simply changing the background colors. Color choices and design of icons and other imagery along UI components and even text layout (size, positioning, typeface choice, etc.). All of these have to be carefully reviewed and, if needed, adjusted for compatibility as well as for any impact to the supportability of the programs (for example, what happens when a blurry or low-res screenshot is sent in with a ticket).
peteyt received kudos from Aryeh Goretsky in suggestion for all eset products
Yes I agree. I have no issue with eset implanting a dark mode if they decide to. However I presume it wouldn't be as simple as it sounds. If it's something that would take a while I'd rather they used that time on the product itself rather than how it looked

peteyt gave kudos to TomasP in I Am Very Ticked Off!
While I can't speak for the sales offers of our US office (@CB530 explained those, as he works in that office), you will be glad to know that for the past few weeks, we have actually been planning to launch a program for our most valued forum members that includes a free license!
I am sorry it was not launched before you had this experience, but as it was said, you can choose to refund the renewal and opt to purchase a new discounted license at this time.
You will hear from us regarding the most valued members program.
peteyt gave kudos to Marcos in Updated programs - Keep Rules
We are aware of the problem with Windows applications and the changing path with each update. There is a plan to come with up a solution to this in long term. Also I can assure you that we value any constructive feedback or suggestion and it's discussed with product managers and developers.
