Disconnecting and uninstalling
Do I need to reconfigure my router before disconnecting the Avast Omni hub?
Most customers will not need to reconfigure their router. However, if you switched your router to DHCP mode before connecting it to your Avast Omni hub, you will need to switch your router back to ARP mode before disconnecting the Avast Omni hub.
To check which mode your router is in, open the Avast Omni application and go to
☰ Menu ▸ Settings ▸ Omni hub ▸ Troubleshooting.
- If you see the Start ARP setup button, your router is currently in DHCP mode. Click Start ARP setup and follow the on-screen instructions to switch your router back to ARP mode.
- If you see the Start DHCP setup button, your router is in ARP mode and you can safely disconnect your Avast Omni hub from your router.
How do I uninstall the Avast Omni app?
We recommend uninstalling the Avast Omni Family Member app from all devices before uninstalling the Avast Omni Family Guardian app. On Android devices, it is important to first unpair the device from the Avast Omni Family Guardian app, before starting uninstallation. In most cases, uninstallation will fail unless you unpair the Android device first.
For detailed instructions, refer to the following articles:
How do I disconnect the Avast Omni hub from my router?
We recommend first disconnecting the power cable. Unplug the power cable from your Avast Omni hub, then unplug the power cable from your electrical power socket.
Your Avast Omni hub is now only connected to your router by the network (ethernet) cable. Unplug this cable from the Avast Omni hub, then unplug the other end of the cable from your router.
What should I do with my Avast Omni hub? How can I dispose of it safely?
You can put the Avast Omni hub (and cables) in your local recycling bin for electrical goods.
