Using SecurityCenter Before you begin using SecurityCenter, review the components and configuration areas you will use to manage your computer's protection status. For more information about the terminology used in this image, see Understanding protection status and Understanding protection categories. Then, you can review your McAfee account information and verifying the validity of your subscription.
Managing your subscriptions Each McAfee protection product that you purchase comes with a subscription that lets you use the product on a certain number of computers for a certain period of time. The length of your subscription varies according to your purchase, but usually starts when you activate your product. Activation is simple and free—all you need is an Internet connection—but it's very important because it entitles you to receive regular, automatic product updates that keep your computer protected from the latest threats. Activation normally occurs when the product is installed, but if you decide to wait (for example, if you don't have an Internet connection), you have 15 days to activate. If you don't activate within 15 days, your products will no longer receive critical updates or perform scans. We'll also notify you periodically (with onscreen messages) before your subscription is about to expire. That way you can avoid interruptions in your protection by renewing it early or by setting up auto-renewal on our Web site.
Subscription Activation If you see a link in Security Center prompting you to activate, then your subscription has not been activated. To see your subscription's expiration date, you can check your Account page.
