After you deactivate, your software remains installed on your computer, but you're no longer protected against the latest threats.

Remember, only deactivate your software if you want to make a license available to protect another computer, if you're using more licenses than your subscription allows, or if you're no longer using a computer.

You can reactivate your software if you want to start protecting a computer again.
