any offer to buy F-prot on discount for home user ? If you know, than share with us.
F-Prot is already not very expensive.
It's nice to give a little money for a product you like, no ?
Yeah there is if you buy _one_ license you can use it on up to _5_ computers you own, in the end it is US$6 a license! Very inexpensive as compared to many others.
Now you're making me wonder if it'd be legal to rope in four other friends and purchase one license between us.
I do believe the EULA states you must have the computers in the same household. I don't know if they require anything beyond that. I assume so though.
This will not be within the terms of the end-user license agreement if you are all on different networks from different households.
You can however, install FPAV6 on several, distinct IP addresses as long as it is inside the same household.
But worst case scenario; you have to buy a Corporate License which as you know is relative peanuts.
I think corporate is $50 for up to 10 individual users.
That's $5 each, cheap as chips.
Even cheaper than the chips here!
Yeah, but the big problem is finding 9 other friends who give a damn about antivirus software.
Not to mention I'm gonna be the fall guy if F-PROT screws anything up on their PCs while their Symantec/avast! chugged along just fine.
Discussed here (see post #52 and subsequent posts): https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=199481&page=3&highlight=corporate
I'd be curious to get clarification from F-Prot as to whether or not such would violate EULA.
on your post and the OP's one.
I feel FP's pricing structure discriminates against 1-computer homes. Why should I pay $29/computer for a product that some folks get for less that $6/computer? I refuse to buy or recommend FP mainly for that reason.
I don't get it. Everybody pays 29$ in the end. I bought Avira 4 months ago to put on a small computer and even though the licence is good for 2 computers I didn't see it as being "screwed" of half the price at all.
So you have no problem paying say, 60$ for a Kaspersky or F-Secure licence good for one computer but 29$ that you can use on up to 5 computer is a bad thing?
$29 for 5 computers wow that is mega cheap.
there is not many AV that cheap for one pc.
cheap decent AV and Mike working for them what more can you ask for?
To think that a license costs $ 29 for a computer, and if you need more licensing, FRISK said: we can offer you, if you wish, 4 other licenses, and free.
That way, the pill is better?
The purpose is the same, it's just a psychological issue.
Buy some more computers.
Just goes to show, you can please some of the people some of the time, but you can't please all the people all the time.
fprot 1 user would be the same price as fprot 5 user, would people rather pay for the 1 user licence?
discounts on a cheap antivirus? ......
they have to make 'some' money.
But I don't like it in the end.
No matter how you rationalize it, folks with many computers get the elevator. Those with only 1 computer get the shaft. Grrr
Consider the us$29 price for individual users as well...in the end
Ah, but as always, you need to know what the rules are before you can start figuring how to get around them.
It's your right to feel that way, but be prepared for a couple of frustrating years because that's where the industry seem to be going. Just look at VIPRE, they just got a new licence out, Unlimited Home Site License. No matter how many computers you have at home, it will cost 50$ for one year of VIPRE. Hope you won't feel unlimitedly shafted by that deal
Personally, I 'll give 29$ for 5 license anytime for a good product even though I only need 1 before I give 60$ to another one who only offer 1 license for that price.
Of course, since F-Prot didn''t support Vista 64 when it was time to renew, well, they didn't get the 29$.
I lean towards the way Belgamin thinks on this. I usually don't want to have the same AV on my 2 PCs what if a big virus attack gets out and AV 1 misses it AV 2 might get the update out quicker.
More and more companies are going this way. In this case $29 is a good price even for one pc.
It says that.
