The length of your first term depends on your purchase selection (e.g. 1 month or 1 year).  Once your first term is expired, your subscription will be automatically renewed on an annual basis (with the exception of monthly subscriptions, which will renew monthly) and you will be charged the renewal term subscription price in effect at the time of your renewal, until you cancel.
  • Unless otherwise stated, if a savings amount is shown, it describes the difference between the first term and renewal term subscription prices (e.g., first year price vs. each year thereafter).
  • Pricing is subject to change. If the renewal price changes, we will notify you in advance so you always know what’s going on.
  • You can cancel your subscription or change your automatic renewal settings any time after purchase from your My Account page. To learn more about automatic renewal, click here

 Virus Protection Pledge Terms:

  • To be eligible for VPP you must be actively enrolled in our auto-renewal service with a qualifying product installed.  If we cannot remove a virus from a device we support (see VPP System Requirements), we’ll refund—for the current term of your subscription—the actual amount you paid for the qualifying product, or the value of the qualifying product if it was included in a bundle (see terms of service for details), less any discounts, rebates, refunds, shipping, handling or taxes.  The refund does not apply to any damage or loss caused by a virus—we strongly recommend that you always backup your data to prevent data loss.
