eSafe license expires

I just received the following interesting question:

What happens if our eSafe license expires?……Because it expires this weekend!!!!!!!!

Interesting question, because I never encountered such a situation. Normally the license is renewed in a timely fashion or a trial is stopped before the license expires. I searched the Knowledge Base from eSafe and found an article. This article tells the following:

Evaluation license: when an evaluation license expires, eSafe allows all traffic to pass through without any scanning at all.

Registered license: when a registered license expires, eSafe scans and blocks traffic, but stops receiving updates. Important note: if there are any licensed add-on’s installed (URL filter, Advanced Anti-Spam), they will stop functioning after the registered license expires.
