Is the HP warranty check a scam?

A message has just appeared on my laptop asking whether I allow product info to be sent to HP to check my warranty status.

Is this genuine and safe or is it a scam of sorts?

Thanks in advance.

I just declined the request. I don't need to know my warranty status as it's on the receipt anyway.

Thanks for the answers.



  • Without actually seeing I wouldn't be sure.

    However a friend of mine has got an HP PC and he has got an HP follow up on his.

    Bit like the Microsoft one where they ask basically the same thing.

    Suppose it's something with improving their systems.

    Up to you whether you sign up for it or not

  • You did right. Always decline any requests that just "appear". When I receive update notices I decline them and go to their actual website(be it Java, Adobe, AVG, whoever)and check for updates to download. Trust NO ONE! There's a lot of scummy spammers out there.
