My F-Secure SAFE subscription code is not accepted. What should I do?

This discussion has a more recent version.


I just purchased a F-Secure subscription with the subscription code, but it does not work. What should I do?


  • Verify that the subscription purchased is for F-Secure SAFE. You can find the product name in the purchase invoice that was emailed to you.
  • F-Secure SAFE license code has this format: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx

If the code provided is for F-Secure SAFE, please follow the steps below to activate the subscription using the code:
  1. Go to the My F-Secure portal:
  2. Login to your F-Secure SAFE account with your email and password.
  3. Click on Subscription.
  4. Scroll down and click on Enter a Code.
  5. Insert your F-Secure SAFE license code (this format: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx).
  6. Click on Continue.
  7. Once the code is accepted, proceed to install F-Secure SAFE on your device by clicking Add device and follow the instructions shown on the screen. 

If you do not have a F-Secure SAFE account yet, then create a F-Secure SAFE account first: 
  1. Go to the F-Secure web page:
  2. Navigate to For Home > Products > F-Secure SAFE.
  3. Click Try for free.
  4. Create your F-Secure SAFE account from there. 
  5. You can now proceed to the first guide in this article, to insert your license code in your F-Secure SAFE account. 

Note: If you do not see Enter a code option, or the license code still cannot be accepted, please contact F-Secure support.
