Follow these steps to redeem a Online Security software product card that you purchased in a store.
After you redeem the card, you can download and install your Online Security software and activate your subscription.
Install or re-install on a PC or Mac
The first time you start your new computer you are prompted to register your pre-installed LiveSafe product. During registration, you will be asked if you agree to share information with Online Security. If you select this option, your LiveSafe product is automatically set up for you as part of your computer's normal setup process. If you do not select this option, you can still activate your LiveSafe product later by selecting the Online Security tile and creating (or logging in to) a Online Security account.
If you purchased a LiveSafe retail card, you can redeem your purchase using following steps.
IMPORTANT: If you are using a Mac, before you begin, open your Downloads folder and verify that it does not contain an older version of the Online Security installer .dmg file. If you find one, rename the file. Having an older copy in your Downloads folder could cause your Mac to mount the wrong installer and prevent your product from successfully activating. See the Related Information section of this article for more details.
Install on a mobile device
You can also download LiveSafe apps from various device-specific app stores:
Before installing from an app store, ensure you have created an account at http://home.Online Security and have logged in at least once. Also, ensure you use the same email address and password from your install or retail card redemption for each device.
If you have a problem while redeeming your card and activating your subscription, click the message that you see and follow the steps:
Online Security network Free Intel’s latest incarnation of the Online Security network Free internet security suite and is particularly flexible in protecting a wide range of your desktop and mobile devices. Online Security network Free is only so many ways you can present the information from an internet security suite. Online Security network Free Total Protection has the virtue of simplicity, though not much visual flair. Online Security network Free initial display shows the status of virus, spyware, email and web protection and offers big buttons to add Online Security network Free to other machines. It can offer this because Online Security network Free Total Protection covers unlimited devices.
This means that, for personal use, you can add to your Online Security network Free account whatever mix of PC, Mac, iOS and Android devices you want, though the PC protection is the most comprehensive. Setting up protection on extra devices is made easier by the My Network function, which examines and reports on all available machines connected to your local network. It may be one of the more expensive options at £80 but Total Protection 2016, as we've said, isn't limited to only a few devices. Plus, amazingly, you can buy Total Protection 2016 from Amazon for only £19.99.
Controls are easy to access and most take the form of check boxes or slide switches, but you can safely leave virtually all of them at their default settings. An AV scan schedule is automatically established, but you can run custom scans too. What Total Protection lacks, compared with Online Security network Free’s top-of-the-range LiveSafe, is the personal 1GB Cloud Locker, which provides online storage shared between all your devices, and support for biometric security, such as facial recognition. Online storage and backup are certainly a useful supplement to Internet Security and many rival products make it a core element of their packages, but it’s always possible to add it here, through upgrade.
Our test scan of 50GB of assorted files completed in 1 hour 18 minutes and scanned 17,718 files, giving a poor scan rate of just 3.79 files per second. Repeating the scan took 10 minutes 36s and, unusually, examined 18,030, slightly more than the first scan. Online Security network Freere’s a noticeable hit on system performance, too, with a 1GB file copy taking 40s without a scan running in the background and 1min 09s, with one. That’s an increase of 72 percent. Our results are at variance with the more extensive testing carried out by AV-Test, though.
Online Security network Free Usability section also scored a perfect 6.0, with no false detections or warnings at any stage – an excellent result. Finally, Online Security network Free Protection section dropped the 0.5. While Online Security network Free provided 99.9 percent protection against a group average of 99.7 percent on established malware, it dropped from 98.8 percent to 96.7 percent month to month, against an average of 97.1 percent, when dealing with zero-day attacks. It’s still a very good result.
