    How to renew a SafeKey account?

      How to renew a SafeKey account?


      I started using SafeKey fewmonths ago. I used my All Access account to create the SafeKey account.

      My All access account expiredwhich means my SafeKey account expired too.

      I now have Live Safe subscription on my McAfee account. Live Safe also comeswith SafeKey.

      However when I log into mySafeKey account it still says I need to renew. So my SafeKey account is stillconnected to my expired All Access subscription.

      How do I get my SafeKey accountto recognize I now have Live Safe so it should activate my Safe Key account.


      I can create a new SafeKeyaccount using the activation code, but it means I have to make a new emailaddress, i have to start saving my password all over again.

      I wish to use my existingSafeKey account.


      I keep contacting Support butevery time i contact them they don’t understand this problem, they keepthinking it is a PC or Software problem. So every time I contact McAfee supportthey uninstall it and reinstall it, and it still does not work. When i contactthem again the next person uninstalls and reinstalls.

      For some reason they don’t reador they don’t understand the problem I am describing to them.

          Moved to LiveSafe for better support.

            Have you tried uninstalling the old Safekey from that machine in the normal manner?   That should have been done before installing LiveSafe, I believe.    I don't think you can change an existing Safekey account in the way you are asking, you would have to make a brand new one with a new email address.


            Customer Service deal with account issues and Technical Support with technical questions and if they couldn't help at first ask them for escalation to a higher level.  This product is relatively new so they may not yet be totally familiar with it.


            Hopefully someone subscribed to this section will chip in here to help.  I don't actually use the product myself.
