I want to know if i can control the updates/downloads of Trend onto my other devices via my main PC?
Is this possible? if not is there an update in the works?
This would be extremely handy as I have kids who always forget to update the antivirus so their PC's are left vulnerable. Also extra handy if you cannot get to the PC due to distance.

I have seen this done on another antivirus AVG where the main pc can download the latest update for another PC when it next boots up.

Hello jenniferpalmer77 and welcome to the Community!

Thank you for letting us know about this question that you have in mind.

To answer your question, Trend Micro Security does not have the feature to control or to trigger a software update remotely to other devices under the same subscription through a main computer.

We understand that this is really a helpful feature especially to users like you but at the moment, we do not have plans to make that feature happen by the next release. Although, your Trend Micro Security software updates itself automatically for every 3 hours as long as it is connected to the internet. We that hope it'll put your mind at ease.

I hope this answers your question. Should you have any other concern, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Enjoy the rest of the week!
