F-Secure launched the Lokki location sharing app for families and other privacy-minded groups in 2013. In late 2014, in order to better focus on other services strategically closer to its security and privacy agenda, F-Secure decided to ramp down Lokki as an independent service. Through the open source initiative the Lokki technology will continue to live on and possibly power new location service innovations by students, startups and mobile service developers, and offer a research platform for academic partners.

F-Secure's New Global Partner Program Gives IT Service Providers the Bang AND the Buck
