All paid subscriptions to McAfee consumer products are automatically enrolled in the Auto-Renewal program. When enrolled, your subscription automatically renews every year. And, your credit card is automatically charged to keep your McAfee protection in place.
Auto-Renewal ensures that your virus protection is not interrupted. Without Auto-Renewal, you must renew your subscription manually before it expires. Otherwise, you could be left unprotected when your license expires.
