This is how to get Emsisoft Anti-Malware for free


Mapping a new customer is always done through your personal ID number, which you can find on your personal page. To access your personal page, click the Settings tab, then click License. You’ll then want to click Learn how to get a full version license for free! at the bottom of the screen.

Share a Download link with your ID

Your personal page contains a direct download link, which includes your ID. The installation file this link provides contains your ID in the form of a modified file name. For example, if your ID is 123456, users who click the direct download link will download a file called: EmsisoftAntiMalwareSetup_123456.exe. Once installed, this file will automatically map to and extend your license. Important note though: the ID should not be removed; doing so will prevent us from mapping the free license correctly.

Share an Emsisoft product page link with your ID

Your personal page also provides a link to the Emsisoft Anti-Malware product page containing your ID. The link address looks like this:

If a customer downloads the software from this page, they will automatically get a download link containing your ID.

Spread your link

In addition to a direct download and product page link, your personal page offers many different ways to spread your Referral Rewards download link. Each method is just another way to help us create a malware-free world – and for you to get Emsisoft-grade protection for free!



License renewal


Every time you win us another customer, you will see a popup window like the one on the right the next time Emsisoft updates. This window will inform you of your free license renewal.

Best of all, 2 paying customers, and you’ve already got one full year of Emsisoft Anti-Malware, absolutely free.
