  • I would really like to buy your products, but I found some forums from actual users complaining about how difficult it is to cancel a subscription. I'm not sure if that's true, but it made me cautious. I just want to tell it to you because maybe you want to research about why those users complain.

    By the way, they complain about Kaspersky too, and it seems to be because they don't sell directly the product, it's a 3rd party who receives the payment and that 3rd party is not being fair with the users. Why don't you sell it directly?
