    Trick to get your Kapersky internet security renewed - Barclays

    Trick to get your Kapersky internet security renewed - Barclays 8th Sep 17 at 3:58 PM
    Hi all,

    I had a problem a few months ago with Kapersky internet security, which I got for free from Barclays.

    I could only fix the problem by getting a new licence key from Barclays. I was amazed to see today that the app, which advised me the license would expire today. The app renewed the license automatically and told me that it would last for 365 days.

    If anyone wants to leave Barclays and keep Kapersky, it may be worth giving this a try.

    Are you saying after you have left you still can get a new key ??
    Or are you saying as an existing customer you can get a new key and six months down the line leave Barclays .

    Its kaspersky that issue the keys through your account services after checking .

    You can get a key today and leave Barclays tomorrow. You can get more than 1 key because you have multiple devices.

    It costs them very little and it may entice someone to stay or attract a new customer so worth it to them.

    For me, I have had it for many years, when I worked for Barclays. I now have just £1-00 in my current account, which has been inactive for many years.

    I can't remember how much Kapersky cost. I think it now costs £30-to-£40.

    Great freebiie from the Go-To bank .
