McAfee Free for DOD Servicemembers and Civilians

There is also a McAfee Home Use Program, similar to the Microsoft Office military discount, that allows US servicemembers and civilian government employees of the DOD access to McAfee Anti-Virus software on their home computer for free. Contractors are not eligible.

The program offers a free, one year subscription to McAfee Internet Security, for both Macs and PCs. Here's the 4 step process to getting your free McAfee Internet Security software:

You must go to the McAfee DOD website through the correct link for PC or MAC and enter the code as described below.

McAfee Home Use Program for Military and DOD (codes good until 31 December 2019):

  1. If you have a PC, go to the McAfee DOD PC website enter the company code DODFDD02C8 and your PERSONAL email address. NOT your government email address! (Even though it says corporate email address, you want the link sent to your home email.)
  2. If you have a Mac, go to the McAfee DOD MAC website enter the company code DOD97F84AC and enter your PERSONAL email address.
  3. Click “Get Email”
  4. You will receive an email from McAfee with your unique license key and a download link for the software.

That's it! This is an easy way to help secure your computer from all the nasty stuff floating around on the web.

Please let me know if you have any questions. If you successfully used either of the above McAfee military discount programs, let us know in the comments!
