I bought 3 years subscription with a new laptop. The company who set the machine up added the first.
The numbers on the other two vouchers were not accepted and while trying to add them, I was charged. (A credit card number had to be supplied.) I didn't object; it was an offer price and I was protected. This year, before renewing, I checked the record of threats stopped, NIL! My free covers were clearly working well.
I didn't renew. 6 months later I am being bombarded several times a day by pop-ups with horror stories of what will happen if I don't renew. I can close them, but they are more than annoying. They block a corner of the screen when I am part way though a post on social media or typing an important document, and my concentration goes.
I regard this as harassment, but I am reluctant to enter into discussion with the company. I do NOT intend to install McAfee if it was offered for free.
Product or Service Mentioned: Mcafee Antivirus.
Monetary Loss: $90.
Preferred solution: Stop advertising pop-ups.
