Show Your Friends the Emsisoft Advantage

  • 1 month for free

    Every friend you win for us simply needs to install the test version of Emsisoft Anti-Malware for you to get another free month of the full version of the software. Our servers will recognize the installation and automatically give you your bonus. The new user just has to use a link containing your personal ID.

  • 6 months for free

    If one of your friends purchases at least one-year of Emsisoft Anti-Malware, your license will be automatically renewed for six more months. The new user just needs to use the link provided in the software containing your ID so we can map them to you.

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!

  • Via Facebook

    Tell your Facebook friends how well Emsisoft protects your computer and why you prefer our solutions over other forms of anti-malware or antivirus. Then, set a link to your favorite product’s page – including your ID in the link, of course.

  • Your own homepage

  • Forum signature

  • Install the software on your friends’ PCs

    Are you an anti-malware expert? The next time a family member or friend asks for your help, just download the Emsisoft Anti-Malware installation file with your ID. Better yet, save the installation file with your ID to a USB stick or CD, then use that to install Emsisoft whenever you encounter an infected computer.

  • Be creative!

    We value user feedback. Design and send us your original link sharing ideas, please! The best ideas will be published here.

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, the number of free months you can receive is not limited in any way. You can accumulate as many valid free license periods as you’d like. 12 test version installations or 2 paying customers, and you’ve already got one full year of Emsisoft Anti-Malware, absolutely free.
