Did you just made a purchase of McAfee antivirus or Internet Security Software? Or you are wondering if you should order it online or visit a retailer for installation? Then continue reading this article. Here you will find easy steps to Redeem Mcafee Key (do it yourself) and save money by avoiding your visit to a regional store.

McAfee offers technical support for all the products and services offered. Everything that you will need can be found directly on McAfee website. However, if you need the things to be simplified further, you simply have to follow the steps given below:

  1. To redeem your McAfee retail card, and to activate your subscription, you need to open the internet browser on your system. There would be a link given on the card which you have to type in the address bar. This link could be mcafee.com/activate.
  2. The link would take you to system setup files. Here you would be required to enter a couple of details like the country you live in and the language you understand.
  3. Before you proceed, ensure that the details submitted by you are correct.
  4. Next you will be asked for the product key or the activation code that is clearly written on the card you received. A Password will be also mentioned on the card. This Mcafee 25 digit code is what you need to continue with the activation process.
  5. You will then have to enter your email id and click Submit. Ensure that your email id is active and you remember its password. This id will also allow you to make an account on Mcafee MyAccount.
  6. Once you verify your details and agree to the terms and conditions, you will be prompted to create a McAfee account and install your McAfee software.

Ensure that every entry you make during the process of redeeming Mcafee product key is correct. Else you may receive a message like ‘this web page does not exist’ or ‘invalid product key’. If you see such a message, you must re-check the entries. Try redeeming the product key again.

However, if the entries were correct and you get a message indicating towards some technical difficulties or server issues, you must recheck the country you selected. The language chosen and country selected could be the reason why your product key could not be activated. If the problem still persists you must wait for half an hour before giving it another try. In case you still find it difficult to Redeem Mcafee key, you can always approach their customer service cell.

There are certain things that you must keep in your mind when activating an antivirus or Internet security software.

  1. Order a copy of software online or buy only from registered retailers.
  2. Do not accept the card if it is broken.
  3. The codes written on it (Mcafee 25 digit code) are unique and can be used only for a limited number of devices (variable depending upon the subscription plan you choose).
  4. The validity of the software would last for a year or more, after which you will need to get a fresh antivirus installed in your system.
