Yes, when you install it on the new computer, it will automatically prompt you to transfer the license if you don't have an extra seat to use with your current license as long as your license has not expired. Just make sure you download and install the same edition of the software on the new computer that is on the old one. You can download the latest version for free at Trend Micro's download center here:

The great thing about Trend Micro Security is that you can always use the latest version of the software for free as long as your license is current and not expired. That way you always have the latest and best protection.

Hello jaymusil!

Welcome to the community!

Thank you for your very helpful answer brook_stein. As an option, you can also removed first the old device from your Trend Micro account to prevent error or problem installing it on anew computer. To do that please follow the instructions below.

  1. Log in to your Trend Micro Account
  2. Look for your product, Internet Security
  3. Remove the old device by clicking the "X" icon on the upper right of the device.
After you have successfully removed the old device, you can install the program on the new computer by following the steps provided on the link below.
