Referring ESET product to a friend

This version of ESET Internet Security now offers referral bonuses, so you can share your ESET product experience with your family or friends. You can even share referrals from a product activated with a trial license. When you are a trial user, for each successful referral you send that results in a product activation, both you and your friend will receive an extra time on the trial license.

You can refer using your installed ESET Internet Security. The product you can refer depends on the product you are referring from, see the table below.

Referring a product

To send a referral link, click Refer a friend in the ESET Internet Security main menu. Click Share referral link. Your product will generate a referral link that will be displayed in a new window. Copy the link and send it to your family and friends. You can share your referral link directly from your ESET product by using Share on Facebook, Refer your Gmail contacts and Share on Twitter options.

When your friend clicks the referral link you send to them, they will be redirected to a web page where they can download the product and use it for an additional one month of FREE protection. As a trial user, you will receive a notification for each referral link that is successfully activated and your license will be automatically extended for an additional one month of FREE protection. This way you can extend your FREE protection by up to 5 months. You can check the number of successfully activated referral links in the Refer a friend window of your ESET product.
