My device shows my product license is expired. I have purchased F-Secure SAFE or TOTAL subscription

This discussion has a more recent version.


I have renewed my F-Secure SAFE license, but my device shows license expired.


You might have purchased a subscription for a different product:
Check the product installed on your device. If the product installed on your device is F-Secure Internet Security, then the subscription that you've purchased is for a different product.
In this case, you need to uninstall F-Secure Internet Security from your device, and install F-Secure SAFE. Skip to the next step if this is not the case for you.

If the product installed is the correct product for the subscription purchased: 
  • Make sure that you have renewed an existing subscription instead of purchasing a separate new subscription. If you suspect that you might have purchased a separate new subscription, contact F-Secure Support for further assistance.
  • If you use the login through Facebook, please verify you have installed SAFE from this account and not from the one with "normal" login.
  • Try restarting your device, the product may just need to be refreshed to connect to our servers.

If your F-Secure account shows the correct number of devices and restarting your device doesn't fix the issue, follow the steps below:
