I don't really know much about K7. Is it worth having around just to slap on a device here and there?

The K7 Infiniti Offer only requires a one-time payment for which you get malware definition updatesand new feature updates as and when they are released. With no renewal ever needed again, i.e., you only pay once and enjoy lifetime protection.
This is a great deal, but I always sense sth wrong when a company starts offering lifetime deals.

I was burned some years ago by something a lot like this. I was using an antivirus, first free and then I paid. They offered a lifetime deal for a good price. I bought it. The lifetime license lasted less than a year before they were gone, so I ended up paying more for 9 months than if I'd just bought a one year license.

Though I’n a big fan of K7 (lightweight, non-bloated, good and regular signatures), I won’t jump on that offer, as it seems too good to be perfect, I did not find any information that the lic is bundled to the machines lifetime, which is quite usual IMO.
If everyone grabs that deal, they lose a ton of money (1y/5PC w/ 30% off is currently 42.7$).

Apart from that, though I‘m owning a multiple years valid lic, I keep testing alternatives, as K7 HIPS proved very weak against script malware.
Sometimes, it detected their AutoRuns after quite some time, but I want to stop it on creation.
Plus, a Firewall trusting signed and services from the System by default with no possible user request / information (only log), is a big deal breaker for me.
The ransomware protection improves, but is still lacking compared to QuickHeal. At least you have protected folders.
See also my HUB tests on K7 if you wish.

Quite ridiculous that K7 Lifetime license costs about the same as a one year license of QuickHeal 😄

Its legit.

K7 has offered limited access lifetime licenses before too. This deal is limited too.

Actually the aim is to increase userbase across the world mainly to reduce their FP counts and enhance their whitelisting. They are hoping users will put up with some FPs in order to gain lifetime antivirus.

K7 also provides refund within 30 days if all your issues are not solved for this particular lifetime license purchase. I tried it myself, had a BSOD issue with K7. They took 2 weeks to fix it and conceded that if they will not be able to fix it, they were going to refund me....

+1
Even after disabling the default settings for that and using the "if the program is not on the list ask option" it didn't ask.
Otherwise I would have thought about it but when I say I want to be asked I expect a firewall to do so...

hm. this is very inexpensive. even if they go bust in a couple of years, it's only 70 bucks for 5 devices. does this product version have their firewall? i've been looking at their site, and it's not as clear as i would like.

Yes, it has the firewall. You basically get the "Ultimate Security" product with this deal.

P.S. K7 runs such deals from time to time and has been doing it for years. They haven't gone belly-up. They are just trying to increase the userbase. 25 million is not much compared to the bigwigs, and they want to improve their whitelists and threat mitigation capabilities.

This particular license actually allows you to deactivate the license from a particular PC if you want to "free up" activations for use on other PCs. So yes, it is NOT tied to the system hardware.

QuickHeal is way overpriced, I noted that in a review on it :D
Actually, in India, it's seems to be reasonably priced.
Not even in India, believe me. Okay, to some people, nowadays, sure but not when i used to use it. Quick heal improved a lot over the span of 10 years, which is when i used to use it.
In India, Kaspersky licenses are 3-4 times cheaper than Quickheal, if you buy online.
Okay back to topic, personally, i don't prefer lifetime licenses for security software's as you will be stuck with them, for lifetime :(.
