McAfee one year free anti-virus subscription in VMware Fusion (1015568)


This article provides information related to the 12-month free subscription to McAfee Antivirus Plus and its renewal.


New VMware Fusion users receive a complimentary 12-month subscription to McAfee Antivirus Plus.
Note: If you are a current VMware Fusion user upgrading to a new version of VMware Fusion, and you previously received a free 12-month subscription to McAfee Antivirus Plus, you cannot receive another 12-month subscription to McAfee Antivirus Plus. The free McAfee subscription is only available one time. Purchasing a Fusion upgrade does not entitle you to a renewal of your McAfee subscription.
Subscriptions must be renewed directly with McAfee after the initial complimentary 12-month subscription expires.
