Get ready for Windows 10 by upgrading Trend Micro Security to the latest version

Learn how to upgrade your Trend Micro program to the latest version. You can upgrade your program for free as long as your subscription is not expired.
Differences between "Renewal", "Upgrade" and "Update":
  • Renewal - extends your subscription/expiration date. This happens automatically after your renewal purchase. Program version does not change.
  • Upgrade - removal of current Trend Micro program then installation of the latest program version.
  • Update - checking, downloading and installing of the latest virus patterns/definitions. This is automatically done by your Trend Micro program every 3 hours.
Trend Micro recommends that you always upgrade your Trend Micro Security software to the latest version to ensure that you have the latest protection and prevent product issues.
Important: Some products bundled with new or renewing purchases are not available when you opt to get the free upgrade. These will be made available when you renew your subscription. To find out what products are available when you upgrade, log in to your Trend Micro Account.
Before you upgrade your Trend Micro Security software to the latest version, check the following:
Subscription information / Expiry date
Your Trend Micro subscription should not be expired yet. To check your serial number and subscription, log in to your Trend Micro Account.
Note: On your Trend Micro Account, you should see the complete description of your Trend Micro program which includes the version/year. On each computer names listed, you should see an "Upgrade Recommended" banner if that specified computer is still using an older version of Trend Micro. A link is included for the instruction to upgrade to latest version.
