Trial Antivirus / Internet Security

Hi I am half way into the trial of Antivirus. I would like to have a look at Internet Security. Cant find a way to get a trial key for Internet security or a trial download link like I did with Antivirus. When I log in my trial is listed as Safe witch I never have wanted.

 

Regards

    Hello,

     

    Next one can be as potential workaround (maybe):


    But why you do not want to use/try F-Secure SAFE?

    For Windows systems (platform): F-Secure SAFE is F-Secure Internet Security;

    And just as additional options to install/use your licenses under another platforms (Android/Mac/Windows Phone?!/iOS); And some management-points;

    For packages like (five devices/one year) price for F-Secure SAFE and for F-Secure IS probably..... same.

     

    Thanks!

  • I have got to download a Internet Security Webinstaller 80x Kb But it requires a KEY. So how to get a Internet Security KEY, then?

     

    And to answer your question. I am in a quat for finding a new antivirus solution/platform. And for that to happen I need to test. The more annoyances I meet in my quest, the more likely is that my qust continues elsewhere. Now I am here :)

  • OK. I see. F-secure includes the trial key in the filename. So the one you linked to works, the one I got from F-secure was named 'F-SecureNetworkInstaller.exe' and required a key. Moving on. Same file.

  • Looked like it was going to work. But no.

     

    This key cannot be used to extend the subscription.

     

    So. How do I get to test Internet Security?

    Hello,

     

    If downloaded network installer from my URL:

     

    --> Did you re-name filename? If yes -> maybe good to back it to first-state;

    Or possible to try as "Key": text between "_"-characters under installer-filename (from URL);

     

    --> If not and you launch 'downloaded installer' with 'no changes';

    Maybe possible to run F-Secure Uninstallation Tool:

    https://download.sp.f-secure.com/uninstallationtool/FsUninstallationTool.exe

     

    or previous tool ;

     

    And then re-try install trial F-Secure Internet Security;

     

    With common design: by using networkinstaller with bundled "Key" under filename -> it should automatically trigger validation during installation and give for you thirty days of trial;

     

    Thanks!

    So.. except some points from first part of my reply: maybe you have to uninstall F-Secure AV or F-Secure IS (which ask you for subscription); And then re-try installation with certain trial-installer;

    If not works -> maybe possible re-check steps with Uninstallation tool; If not works: maybe there is some other stuck? I not sure -> if there is any limitation for Trial times. But I with good experience (just installed F-Secure IS trial under one of my systems, where it was not installed before);

     

    Thanks.

  • Ok. Last try. And no filname is as it was.

     

    I'm going for the removal tool, then on last try before moving on.

    Just as clarification:

     

    --> I did my own steps under Windows 10 system;

    Where was only Windows Defender and F-Secure Freedome;

     

    --> I downloaded/run installer from noted URL;

     

    --> Installation normally completed (with autohandling license-information from bundled filename probably). And F-Secure IS with thirty days of trial as active installation.

     

    So.. it should works.. probably.


    And -> I'm also only F-Secure user (their home solutions); So.. I'm not sure about proper official steps (except meanings that with my own experience -> potential valid steps are about F-Secure SAFE too);

    Generally -> you're able to try F-Secure SAFE as trial-time (for understand/feel F-Secure IS) under Windows platform; With common meanings -> there is small difference.

     

    Thanks!

  • Ukko.
    Thank you. F-secure should pay you. I got it installed, and the subscription a new 30days (not what I was after, just a swap but thats a side note). I used the first removal tool you linked to and yes I am on Windows 10.
     
    So now to test :)
     
     Why do stuff complicated when it can be simple Smiley Surprised

    Yes... most likely certain 'extend' only work with subscription activation/re-activation; Also time to time noted that if you add subscription-license over the trial-time -> it also extended (trial days to subscription's days);

     

    Also this is should not work between different solutions like F-Secure AV and F-Secure IS; Where installation should ask for 'remove/uninstall' previous solution (before installing current solution);

     

    So -> if we talk about subscriptions-state (as example; activated F-Secure AV license and activated F-Secure IS license); They will 'active' (days out) even if you do not use it (but only after first activation?!).

    With meanings: if you switch from F-Secure AV subscription (which possible to use some months else) to freshly F-Secure IS subscription: F-Secure AV will be just unused this days (and then - expired);

     

    Why do stuff complicated when it can be simple

     

    Basically -> to try F-Secure IS required only some steps: get trial-installer; download/run installer;

    Trouble -> on current days more actual to use F-Secure SAFE than F-Secure IS (with some meanings); With F-Secure SAFE: to create F-Secure Account and download installer from portal;

    And I not sure about official design as potential promotion to use F-Secure SAFE trial (and not F-Secure IS), but with F-Secure AV: still 'friendly' design (but required more steps for trial-installer/key maybe);

     

    Thanks!

    Hey,

    I don't think Internet Security is being sold to new customers. Why not just use SAFE? It is effectively the same thing as the older Internet Security.
