Protect you and your laptop with McAfee+ Premium antivirus

Enjoying the free 90-day trial of McAfee+ Premium all-in-one antivirus software is easy. If you purchase an eligible refurbished laptop, you won’t have to download or install software as the trial will already be pre-installed on your device. The 90-day trials starts once you have completed setting up Windows. You will know Windows set up is complete when you see your desktop. To have access to all of McAfee’s features make sure you accept McAfee’s EULA.

Once your free 90-day trial is over, you can decide if you’d like to renew or upgrade your McAfee subscription so your protection will continue. If you decide to renew or upgrade, you can share your McAfee+ Premium subscription with other people in your household.

All you’ll need to do is log into your account, select ‘Add devices,’ and follow the steps on your screen to protect your family’s devices.

If you decide not to renew or upgrade, your McAfee subscription will simply expire after the 90-day trial.
