Customers can redeem a McAfee retail card by going to the URL listed on the card and filling in the specific country and language, the card's registration number and a valid email address. After completing the process, on-screen prompts provide instructions about how to download and install the online security company's software.
Retail cards are currently available for three versions of software: Total Protection, Anti-Virus and Live Safe. The retail cards are used because they ensure that the software customers download is the latest available and will effectively protect a computer from viruses, spam and dangerous email. Total Protection also provides parents with a suite of services that enable control over what children can access online.
