I would NOT give any card info for a free trail .... but that is me


Most AV i have tested give a 30day free trail without asking for any credit card info

Haven't you inserted the card when entering the trial? the 60-day trial is usually with credit card required.

+1 Same here

The main problem with giving credit card info on a trial is if you don't wish to continue you have to go through the hassle of stopping the process of your money being taken, and as we all know by the complaints on the forum about these charges it's an absolute PITA ::)
