Managing subscriptions via your Avast Account

Avast Account is a portal designed to help you manage all your paid Avast subscriptions. The following options are available via the My Subscriptions screen:

  • Cancel a continuous Avast subscription
  • Retrieve the valid activation code for a paid subscription
  • Download the latest version of a purchased product

Create an Avast Account

An Avast Account is not automatically created when you make a purchase or register for a free product. You need to create an account manually. However, if you register your Avast Account with the same email address used during your Avast product purchase, your subscription automatically appears in your Avast Account.

You can create an Avast Account by visiting our registration page. For detailed instructions, refer to the following article:

If you create an Avast Account using a different email address to the one provided during product purchase, you can manually connect an Avast subscription to your Avast Account.

Cancel a continuous subscription

  1. Go to to open the My Subscriptions screen.
If you are not already logged in to your Avast Account, enter your email address and password, then click Login.
  1. Click Unsubscribe under the relevant subscription.
  2. Select Unsubscribe from future renewals and let my subscription expire on MM/DD/YYYY, then click Confirm.
  3. Click Got It.

Your continuous subscription is now disabled.

The disabling option is managed separately for each subscription. If you have more than one continuous Avast subscription, repeat the steps above for each subscription you want to cancel.

Connect an Avast subscription to your Avast Account

You can manually connect your Avast subscription to an existing Avast Account, even if the Avast Account is registered to a different email address than the one provided when you purchased the subscription.

  1. Log in to your Avast Account
  2. Click your account name in the top-right corner, then select My Profile.
  3. Under Email management, select + Add another email.
  4. Enter the new email address that was used to purchase the subscription, then click Add.
  5. Check your email inbox and open the email from Avast with the subject: Please verify your email address. Click the Verify Email link in the verification email.
  6. Your newly added email is now verified. If the status is not updated, refresh the web page in your browser, or log in to your Avast Account again.
