    Used Vipre since 2016 or earlier and realized it was not downloading new anti-virus definitions, my laptop was corrupted and all my settings were messed up. We tried reloading everything and found as reloading the vipre and it still wouldn't load the definitions. Sadly my lifetime Vipre from HSN is worthless and I have it on 3 pc and still have 2 to use.

    Both myself and my family members have used VIPRE antivirus software for years. I am always informed in plenty of time that my renewal is near and it gives me ample time to select a different payment method or how many pieces of equipment it will be covering. I have never had any issue with being in contact with VIPRE, I use the ACCOUNT tab from the main screen to send a message to the support center and in a short time I get a reply with suggestions or answers to my questions. Will continue to use this product.

      I have used VIPRE for my business for 3+ years. VIPRE recently renewed my membership without permission and have charged me 3x's the advertised price. I have attempted to call them numerous times with no answer. I do not recommend this company to businesses, as there is absolutely no customer service or support. I will be switching companies.

      VIPRE has worked fine for my purposes, I have had this protection for five devices for 6 years. I bought for my cell, but have been able to share with family members on additional devices. They are not at my address, nor on a cell plan with me.

      Reviewed March 27, 2020

      I used to use Norton, and then McAfee. Later, I talked to some Department of Defense folks who worked with cyber security inquiring which anti-virus company they would recommend during a brief time I worked near their area. I told them I had a small business on the side and I needed to be real sure I didn't get hacked. One technician stated that he uses Vipre at work, and also at home since sometimes he has to take his work to the house. I trust these guys. They were responsible in setting up systems to train our troops at a nearby Military Training Center. I've been with Vipre ever since, and I have had no issues whatsoever.

      I purchased the lifetime Vipre Security for my home pc and sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. I tried reinstalling it and it failed to download. I constantly have problems with Vipre where my computer is left unprotected. I tried downloading new drives and could not find them. Vipre, I wish that your program was better and more user friendly.

      I have been using Vipre for so many years I have lost count. When I needed support they were always prompt in their response. Vipre is not a resource hog like some other programs. Great product. Thank you.

      My family purchased the "LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP" at company startup and it sounded like a great deal so you would think. I can't tell you how many times my Firewall's has been down, permissions ALL changed to off and product key missing. This ** is getting old Vipre and now the automated M-F 9-6 "Lack of support" is the final straw, I'm not sure what happened at Vipre to bring your brand to this ugly place but you may want to hire some competent people to turn it around SOON. My family has had enough, the web is a scary place but not knowing if you have ANY internet security AT ALL is farrr more troubling.

      I sent the question below; to VIPRE and this answered my question. You are part of BYTEFENCE!!! I am confused. I purchased Vipre on HSN and each time I am trying to use the product keys it has put your information (BYTE) on the screen to BUY. So my question is I have a lifelong plan with VIPRE not understanding why your program keeps popping up to purchase. I notice your codes only take numbers and I have NUMBERS AND LETTERS. So can you tell me what is going on? This package was a lifetime purchase through HSN. Thank you!!

      Received message that my antiviral program had errors and it said I should contact the maker. I then tried to do this Saturday afternoon, only to get a recording giving me business hours Monday to Friday. Meanwhile my computer was locked up with it telling me to call Microsoft. I know this is a phony lockout. So I cut all power to the computer. I then restarted it and had no problem. I checked the Vipre software and all my security settings were set to off. I reset them to on and then checked again to find them off again. The Vipre software was not working. It has been 24 hours since I tried to report the error in the software and still no reply. I Uninstalled the software. I only had for 4 months and installed another company's software. I think one star is plenty good for this company that seems to only protect you 5 days a week. I guess they think hackers do not work on weekends either.
