The automatic renewal feature will not be cancelled, you need to manually disable it from your Trend Micro Account (MyAccount). See "How do I disable or cancel Auto-Renewal" above.

 

How could I have been enrolled to Auto-Renewal without knowing it?

The information about this service is located in the Trend Micro Shopping Cart, under the product name column.
If you did not click on the Update Auto Renewal status link while processing the order online, you would have been enrolled with the service by default, thereby authorizing the system to automatically charge the same credit card with the next renewal.

 

How do I enroll to Auto-Renewal?

The only way to enroll in the Auto-Renewal service is by processing an order for either a new purchase or a subscription renewal online.
By default, the Auto-Renew feature is enabled on your Shopping Cart page. You do not have to do anything to opt into the service when processing the order.

 

I received an email saying there is an issue processing the Auto-Renewal because of my credit card, what should I do?

This message is usually sent if you have changed your credit card information or the credit card account is no longer valid. In this case, you will need to manually renew your subscription online. To do this, click on the Renew Now link in the email to be redirected on the Trend Micro Online Renewal page.
Note: Since you will be asked for your serial number during the online renewal, take note of this information beforehand to avoid encountering issues when processing the order.

 

What should I do if I received an “Auto Renewal Failed” notification email from Trend Micro?

Subscription

 

Cancelling The Trend Micro Subscription

Cancelling your Automatic Renewal does not cancel your subscription. To stop receiving email notification about your subscription, select the Unsubscribe option on the email. You also need to uninstall the Trend Micro program installed on your computer.

 

How is my subscription automatically renewed?

You will receive an email notification or a subscription reminder email 15 days prior to your subscription's expiry date. The email will indicate that your subscription will be renewed automatically.
Five days prior to the expiry date, another email will be sent out, and this one will inform you that the renewal has already been completed. On the day you receive the order confirmation email, the expiration date shown on your program's main console will change automatically.
Note: The program version will remain the same after you have renewed your subscription.
Your credit card will be charged the day after your order is placed, and the charge for your renewal will appear on your credit card bill as "DRI*Trend Micro."
If the subscription expiry date on your main console does not change or if you get messages indicating that your subscription will expire soon, click the ? icon on your program's main console and click on About to refresh the information.

 

I received an Order Confirmation Email stating that my license was auto-renewed and noticed that the Billing Address needs to be changed. How do I do this?

There is no way to change or update the billing information once the online order has been completed. You will need to cancel the Auto Renewal service that came with the recent subscription, so that you will be able to manually perform the next renewal and provide the updated billing information. To cancel the Auto-Renewal Service, check: How Do I Disable or Cancel The Auto-Renew Program?

 

What should I do if my license remains expired even after I sign up for Auto-Renewal?

If you have already used My Account to verify that your subscription is enrolled with the Auto-Renewal program and noticed that your expired license has still not been renewed, contact our Technical Support for assistance.
Credit Card

 

Can I update my credit card details on Trend Micro Account (MyAccount)?

Changing the credit card details is unavailable on the Trend Micro Account portal. You need to manually renew your subscription in advanced if you want to register a new credit card.
Note: If you encounter issues updating your billing information, refer to this Knowledge Base article: Updating your billing information.

 

Can I change my credit card and still get a discount?

Currently, there is no way to change the credit card registered to the Auto-Renewal program. To get a discounted renewal, you need to manually renew your subscription. Do the following:
  1. Cancel your existing Auto-Renewal subscription. (Check: How Do I Disable or Cancel The Auto-Renew Program?)
  2. Wait for the confirmation email stating that you have been opted out of the auto-renew service.
  3. Perform a manual renewal online and provide a new credit card information.
    Note: You need to renew the subscription before it expires to avail the discounted renewal price.

 

How much will be charged on my credit card upon auto-renew?

The amount that will be charged will be 90% of the regular price.
