How Can I Tell When My McAfee License Will Expire?

Save

No matter what type of protection you need for your computer, McAfee probably supplies it. The company aims to position itself as a one-stop-shop security provider, offering a number of products ranging from security suites to encryption software to online backups and virus scans. Many software programs require you to purchase a new license for each computer you install the program on, but not McAfee. The company's Director of Product Management explained in a 2010 blog post that your subscriptions are tied to your McAfee account, not individual machines. You can check your subscription status on McAfee's website.

  • Open a Web browser and visit McAfee's website at home.mcafee.com.

  • Click the "Log In" button at the far right side of the gray toolbar running across the top of the website.

  • Log in to the McAfee website with the same email address and password you used when you registered the product you're checking on.

  • Click "My Account" in the gray toolbar running across the top of the screen. You're taken to the "My Account" interface.

  • Click "My Products" in the "My Account" navigation options listed on the left side of the screen. A list of all your active subscriptions appears in a table on-screen.

  • Check the "Expiration Date" box for each listing to learn when your subscription to that service ends.

Tips & Warnings

  • McAfee also sends you a warning email before your subscription ends.
