    Just to summarize our conversation, you had two subscription codes for the code-based F-Secure Internet Security. You were able to redeem one of the codes in My F-Secure, however, not the other. We successfully resolved this issue by transferring the subscription to your alternate My F-Secure account.

    Following this, it's advisable to reinstall the new F-Secure Internet Security as a replacement for the old one. You can find installation instructions for the new app by following this link: https://help.f-secure.com/product.html#home/total-windows/latest/en/task_CD3A8E6884B5487187B4B4F5DA124BB9-latest-en.

    Thank you, and have a great day.

    I am only an F-Secure user. Sorry for the discussion.

    As for my understanding. They will give you the opportunity to upgrade to F-Secure TOTAL for free. Since you have the key (not activated yet?!), you may need to contact F-Secure support for example, web chat: Contact support | F-Secure) and they will explain what to do.

    Or moderators and official representatives of F-Secure can help right here on community pages. They will also be able to help if your key was for some other solution (and that's the reason for "won't accept it").

    However, your concern may be that you do not want to use another solution, but only F-Secure Internet Security (old one, code-based subscription). Is it right?
