Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren -
This better in the German forum though a mod here might be able to answer this.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen -
I am working on a securty review of coupon cards or telecom SIM cards and OEM product activation - 2 steps activation system.
Many providers have introduced the so-called 2-step activation. That means the product has to be activated at the cash register - with the EAN code, otherwise it will not work.
There are also Internet securtiy products that work the same way.
I would like to include McAffee as an example.
Could you please confirm, if eg. If somebody buys a McAfee product from the retailer, you have to use the POS system to import the barcode / EAN / otherwise it will not work, and the product actually has Zero value without the activation?
Thank you for the feedback
