I have McAfee Antivirus. Can I purchase a renewal for McAfee Total Protection?

Yes you can. You can choose a different renewal from your original product and still benefit from the renewal price. For example, you can upgrade from McAfee Internet Security to McAfee Total Protection. It is also possible to do it the other way round and switch to a product that is inferior to the original one, either functionally or in terms of the number of stations.

How do I renew my current McAfee subscription?
What is the procedure to follow?

Sobald Sie Ihre Verlängerung gekauft haben, erhalten Sie eine E-Mail mit einem neuen, 25 Zeichen langen Aktivierungscode für Ihr neues McAfee-Abonnement. Geben Sie diesen Code einfach in Ihr Online-Konto bei McAfee ( unter Aktivierung Ihrer Produktkarte) ein, um Ihr derzeitiges Abonnement zu verlängern oder den neuen Download durchzuführen, wenn Sie sich bei der Verlängerung für ein anderes Produkt entschieden haben.

Do I have to create a new McAfee account when I renew?

No, you will simply enter the new key into your existing account. This will keep all the settings in your current account.

Do I have to reinstall the product after renewal?

No, McAfee security solutions are managed online products. Subscriptions provide automatic access to the latest updates and upgrades, providing new product versions as soon as they become available. However, if you have uninstalled your product or purchased a different product from the original (e.g. McAfee Total Protection instead of McAfee Internet Security), it is necessary to reinstall the new product.

What happens if I still have days left on my previous subscription?

If you purchased a renewal for the same product and number of licenses as your original product, the remaining days will automatically be added to your new subscription.
However, if you change products when you renew, you will lose the remaining days of your old subscription. However, the start date of your new subscription is not linked to your purchase date but to the date you enter your new licence key in your account. You can therefore wait until your subscription expires to enter the key. This way you won't lose any days.

Your prices are more attractive than the prices offered by McAfee for automatic renewal. How do I deactivate McAfee's automatic renewal?
