Unwanted Promotional Offers

Trend Micro Maximum Security greeted me this morning with this pop up promotional offer.

You're meant to block ads and back doors, not blatently open a backdoor and start advertising through software we pay for to prevent this sort of thing!. I'm not even close to the expiry of my subscription so its not like its a month out and I'm getting this as a renewal notice.

I won't be renewing my subscription.

Good day, fellow Community members!

 

We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.

The notification pop up that you are receiving is regarding a complimentary product that Trend Micro offers that ensures protection for all devices connected to your home network.

Upon further investigation, we have found a small glitch in the system, which may have resulted in customers receiving continuous notification pop-ups.

This has been corrected in our system now.

 

In case you encounter this pop-up promotion, kindly create a new thread then we will reach out to you privately to get more details.

Hi Pia,

I'm not impressed to receive the same popup 24 hrs later. Maybe this needs to be escalated past your marketing team to senior management as it will impact the brand in a negative way?

What did you expect our reactions to be. I still have 4 months left on my subscription and it couldn't come soon enough. A full blown foreground popup in front of all apps on system start, with no 'Don't ask again' button or opt out. Better still, simply don't do this to paying customers!

I wonder if this marketing campaign can be exploited someway to send clients other types of malicious data?

Hi @kim_de_guzman ,

How is this resolved? Sure you've turned down the notifications. However, the ability to send users this type of promotional material has not been removed from the product.

I'd like to see an app update removing the functionality entirely.

Yes. Really stupid business decision to spam your own customers if you want them to stay with you. I am not impressed and clearly other customers are not either. Please desist and instead help block other people's spam as we'd expect!
