Glad I saw the 6 month limitation. Not acceptable. Didn't install on other 22 machines.
As I have said here in the past, I received Acrobat 5 & 6 gratis--full unlimited licenses. As a result I bought Acrobat 7, 8, 9, 10 & 11, product & licenses. (Acrobat has since become bloated with a clumsy illogical user interface; needs a complete re-writing.) Some versions multiple times, some only twice. But two unlimited freebies resulted in more than 15 purchases.
If your product won't sell itself, then why bother to offer it?
If it isn't useful enough that any user will want it, why bother to write in the first place?
There's a lot of useless "security" ware out there. If Heimdal is worth having, why is the company not willing to stand behind it with full versions? If people aren't talking about it, no amount advertising will make a sales difference. Direct advertising is no longer effective.
I have this product on the machine I am using--works intermittently. It is hard to tell since there is no noticeable interaction--just skype that opens occasionally (I don't use any Microsoft crap except as absolutely necessary). Its interface doesn't add to usefulness or understanding. Today Heimdal cannot connect to the company server. Does not show up in the start menu. It may be a great product but the company's approach is out of whack. That prevents a full understanding of its value. I won't recommend a six month free license for any software.
If Heimdal had given a free lifetime license from the site I got the one that I am using, there's a good chance the other 22 machines would get the software (22 purchases). That doesn't count the 6 Apples . . . no vision.
If coders want to have a monumental life style and have unending sales, write an OS to replace Windows. It is sorely needed. Microsoft has outlived its relevance. Bozos in charge. ©2016

A thought for Andrei from Heimdal, who's been both professional & kind enough to answer questions & comments today...
Heimdal is not AV software, so this may be irrelevant, but has Heimdal Security thought about providing a removal app, similar to what some AV companies offer for their products? I know you have something here, but I'm referring to small specialized apps that remove all traces: heimdal[.]zendesk[.]com/hc/en-us/articles/207689335-How-to-uninstall-Heimdal-CORP-silently-
Many people are not aware such programs exist, & I've rarely seen them mentioned outside of support docs, but I've always thought that knowing they could easily remove everything would entice more people to try whatever brand of security software... many people are leery of risk-free trials, because there's most always a catch, making them not risk-free at all. Anyway, just a thought.

This giveaway software is supposed to be for security. Heimdal Pro 2.2.0 is supposed to keep you safe from 2nd generation malware.

Do you know what happens when you click on the URL link (provided at top of this GOTD page) to the software's home page?
You have to wait a while. In the mean time your PC is redirected or connected to a long series of other places. Eventually, you are led to Heimdal home page.
They flash very fast. One of them is "marketing..." something.
One of those is reported in my PC as "Sending request to ib.adnxs.com" which is well known as a pop up malware.
Irony of an anti-malware software, first leading you to a malware before you can access their webpage.
Go ahead, all of you GOTD users. Test it out on your PC and watch the bottom left corner of your screen as the status reports of the connection process flashes. Prove to yourself that this is true.

Odd installation process - once you d/l the zip file, there are 2 files within: the setup and readme.
You must follow the URL in the readme in order to get the activation code for the Pro version and from there the d/l process begins. If you just run the setup file in the zip GOTD d/l, you get the freeware basic version.
Once installed, it is basically a software updater - it will scan software installed AND, most importantly, software that you had uninstalled looking for updates. Example: I uninstalled Adobe Reader months ago and replaced it with Foxit Reader. Heimdal PRO gave me the option of installing Adobe Reader. Not good - I don't like Adobe software. Other examples are 32 bit versions of software I already have installed. If I have 64 bit, why would I want to install a 32 bit along with it?
Bottom line - I don't like software updater programs. I would rather manually update them or set software to auto update as needed. Another feature of Heimdal PRO is it blocks access to 'malicious' websites. I already have this feature in Webroot A/V

The giveaway version, as I understand from Andrei's comments, appears to be a software updater like Secunia or Hippo with security scans added, and the security functions will stop after six months leaving only an automatic updater.
I haven't checked reviews to see if it's as good an updater as Secunia and Hippo and Ninite, but I see a problem for GOTD fans with any program that automatically updates or upgrades our software since most giveaways will be annulled by upgrading and cease to work. If Heimdal overrides the "Do not check for updates" setting, we could be thoroughly screwed!
