You can protect an unlimited number of personal devices you own for the duration of your subscription with McAfee LiveSafe.
When you are enrolled in auto-renew, 30 days before your subscription is scheduled to expire, the credit card on file for your account is automatically billed, and your subscription is extended for another year.
If your auto-renewal has been disabled, you will receive a message 30 days before expiry to inform you that your license is about to expire. You can then choose to renew your license for another year or purchase an upgrade.
If your McAfee LiveSafe subscription expires, it won't provide you with the same level of protection it does when it's active. Your software will no longer update with the most recent bug fixes or enhancements, so you won’t be protected from the most recent threats. Once your antivirus software's subscription has reached its expiration date, you must decide whether to resubscribe, purchase another solution, or install a free solution.
