Renewing your F-Secure Internet Security subscription consists of two steps:
  • Buying a new subscription from our online store, and
  • Activating the new code.
When your subscription is at the renewal stage, you are guided to our online store in three ways:
  • From our website,
  • From the email reminder, or
  • From the software program.
  1. To buy your new subscription, choose one of the following options:
    • From our website
      1. Go to the F-Secure Internet Security website.
      2. Select Renew now.
      3. Select the desired package, then select Renew now. This opens the shopping cart.
      4. Fill in the necessary information such as your address and payment method, and select Continue.
      5. Select Buy now to confirm your order. Your new subscription code appears on the Done page and is in the confirmation email that we send after your purchase.
      6. Go to step 2 to activate the code.
    • From the email reminder
      Note: We send email reminders 40 days before your subscription is about to expire.
      1. In the email reminder, select Renew now. This takes you to our website.
      2. Select the desired package, then select Renew now. This opens the shopping cart.
      3. Fill in the necessary information such as your address and payment method, and select Continue.
      4. Select Buy now to confirm your order. Your new subscription code appears on the Done page and is in the confirmation email that we send after your purchase.
      5. Go to step 2 to activate the code.
    • From the program
      Note: The Renew link in the program appears 45 days before your subscription is about to expire. This option may not therefore be visible yet.
      1. Open F-Secure Internet Security.
      2. At the top of the program, select the Renew link. This opens a new window.
      3. Select Buy online. This opens the shopping cart.
      4. On the Order information page, select the number of computers (up to 3 computers), enter your postal and email address, and your payment options, then select Continue.
        Note: The length of the subscription is taken from your previous subscription.
      5. Select Buy now to confirm your order. Your new subscription code appears on the Done page and is in the confirmation email that we send after your purchase.
      6. Go to step 2 to activate the code.

    During the renewal phase, you may also see reminder notifications that pop up in the program at intervals. These are triggered to make sure that you renew in time and stay protected. When you see a reminder notification, select Renew now and follow the same steps as above for renewing through the program.

    As soon as you buy a new subscription, these reminders naturally disappear.

  2. To activate your new code, do the following:
    1. Open F-Secure Internet Security.
    2. At the top of the product window, select the Already have a new subscription code? link. This opens up the F-Secure setup window.
    3. Enter your code in the box: To renew your current subscription, enter the new subscription code
    4. Select Continue.

      Your subscription is renewed.
