[UPDATE-1] Read Update-1 at the end of article.[/UPDATE-1] Since the release of free security solutions from Avast, Avira, AVG, Zonealarm Free Firewall, Comodo Free Firewall, etc. for personal computers, most users and specially home users have diverted from subscription based security solutions to free security solutions. This is because free security solutions provide the same security as others do and in some cases even better. Since a long time, my personal computer is being protected by these free but wonderful security solutions. But, if you are not satisfied with free solutions, here I have one more alternative.
In my previous article, you got to know about free six months license subscription of Norton Antivirus 2013. That promo is still valid and if you want you can try that one. Here I have F-Secure Internet Security 2013 which is just a few days old. I know there are people specially Nordic residents like to have F-Secure. Count this article as tribute to their peaceful life.
Friends have already shared six months license promotion of F-Secure Internet Security 2013. What I will do is to tell you how you can have F-Secure Internet Security 2013 genuine license for at least one year. If you like, you can have it even more than 5 years. It is all up to you. My task is to guide you, only. I am not sharing a new idea. In fact I have already shared the trick in December 2009, while writing about F-Secure Internet Security 2010. F-Secure has not changed their license registration method which enables us to add license over license.
This article has three parts: Before Hands, Get Free and Registration. But before everything, let’s see what F-Secure Internet Security 2013 is offering:

Before applying for license request, you should know that:
1: If you need one year or lengthier subscription of F-Secure Internet Security 2013, you will need to use more than one email address.
2: License request is being monitored through IP address tracking. This means one IP can get only one license at maximum.
3: There is no country restriction means you can apply from anywhere in the world. You need to have internet access.
4: As there is IP restriction, you will need to use different proxy services. Google can help you in this matter. Or if you want, you can use HotSpotShield which is free and reliable solution.
5: For each license request, you need to use the email which you have never registered with F-Secure. In this case, Yahoo.com is the best choice.
6: You will need to disconnect and connect HotSpotShield for each license request.
It will take time but you can save bucks.
I suppose, you have already installed HotSpotShield and you have many unused email accounts.
Open the following address into your web browser and fill as shown the in following pic. Remember that Herr is male and Frau is female.
After license request, if you see webpage text like this, you will get your license very soon. Any other text means license or IP address has already been used.
Within two minutes, you will get the license into your email address. Just keep it safe and be ready for next license request. Close your browser.
Disconnect HotSpotShield and reconnect it. Run browser again, copy and paste the above given internet address and apply for next license. You can repeat this exercise for as many times as you want but you need to use new email and IP address each and every time as I have told you in Before Hands section.
Download F-Secure Internet Security 2013 from here and install it.
Just click on F-Secure icon in task-bar. A small blue window at the bottom middle of desktop will open. Click on text F-Secure and a menu will open. Now click on View my subscription.
A new window will open. Click on blue text Add new subscription or campaign code.
A new window will open. Copy and paste one of your keys in the text box labeled as My subscription key is:. Press button Validate and let it connect to internet to validate your license.
After validation, you can see your license life in Subscription window. You can repeat this license validation process for as many times as you want but each and every time you need to use the new license key.
Remember, one license is valid for 3 months. Website declare it six months but it is not. You will need to have 3 licenses to get one year subscription. It will take 10 minutes maximum. Enjoy it.
[UPDATE-1] I think, the date 30 November 2012 in email means the end of promo life or the license shelf life. I advise to activate all the keys asap and if possible, do it now. And keep the last activated key safe. It is because, all other key lives will be merged to last key. This is what I noticed three years ago and this time, too. [/UPDATE-1]
