What happens if my credit/debit card has expired?

When you receive a new credit/debit card because your previous card is lost or has expired, most card companies use account updater services to automatically update your payment details. This allows us to renew your subscription without you manually updating your details.

To verify if your credit/debit card company uses an account updater service, contact them directly or check their support pages.

If you no longer want to use a paid Avast product, you need to cancel your subscription before the next billing date to stop future charges. An expired credit/debit card does not guarantee that you will not be charged.

Refer to this article for instructions on how to cancel your subscription.
