Reusing a subscription code for F-Secure Internet Security
This topic describes how to reuse subscription codes with Internet Security.
With F-Secure Internet Security, you are able to reuse the subscription code as long as there is time left on the subscription.
Note: With a single PC subscription, you use the subscription code on one computer at a time. With a multi-PC subscription, you can use the same subscription code on several computers at a time up to the subscription limit.
Reusing a subscription code works in the same way for both single PC and multi-PC subscriptions. All you need to do is to install the product and enter the subscription code. Once you do that, the subscription quota is reassigned in the background. This means that the subscription gets dropped on the computer that is the last to reconnect to our servers.
If the product shows Your computer is not protected, this means that this computer no longer has a valid subscription. You can then uninstall the product from that computer.

If you have bought a new computer and want to start using F-Secure Internet Security on the new computer, do as follows:
- Uninstall the program from the old computer:
- Go to Control panel > Uninstall a program.
- Select F-Secure Internet Security > Uninstall.
This removes the program from your old computer.
- On your new computer, go to the Download F-Secure Products page, find Internet Security from the page and select Download for Windows.
- To start the installation, click the installer file.
The installation setup window opens.
Note: The product automatically detects the pre-selected language used by the computer and sets the product to use the same language. If you want to change the language to your preferred language, select the language from the dropdown menu in the top left of the product setup page.
- Select Accept and continue.
- When you are prompted for a subscription code, type in the code and then select Next to finish the installation.
If you have bought a multi-PC subscription, the same subscription code can be used on several computers at the same time, depending on the subscription limit. With a single PC subscription, the same subscription code can only be used on one computer at a time.
Allow the product to complete the installation. The installation takes a minute or so (depending on the speed of your internet connection), and once installed, your computer is protected.
