Why is my Avast subscription more expensive than previously?

When you purchase an Avast subscription, we may offer you an inital discounted price. This offer applies only to the first subscription cycle, after which you are charged full price. The full subscription price is provided during purchase, and you are informed in advance by email before payment is taken. If you are unhappy with the renewal price, cancel your subscription before the end of the current subscription cycle and you will not be charged.

Why haven't I received my purchased Avast subscription?

If you do not receive an order confirmation email containing your Avast subscription details after purchasing a subscription with a credit or debit card, we recommend you check the junk/spam folder in your email account in case the order confirmation was filtered from your inbox.

Order confirmation emails can take several hours to process and send. If you do not receive the email immediately after making the purchase, check your email inbox and junk/spam folder again later.

If your order confirmation email does not arrive to your email inbox or junk/spam folder, you can obtain your activation code from your Avast Account:

  1. Log into your Avast Account using the same email address you used to make the purchase.
  2. Under the relevant subscription, your Activation code is visible.

For Avast Antivirus, you can also request a copy of your license file by providing the email address you used to make the purchase.

If you are still unable to locate your order confirmation email, or obtain a license or activation code, contact Avast Support and provide the Full Name and Street Address that should appear on your order. Once we identify your order, we will adjust your email address and resend the subscription details to you.

Which products are included in my Avast subscription?

Avast offers various paid subscription options. Certain subscriptions include multiple products, while other subscriptions are valid for just one product. You can verify what was included in your subscription either in an order confirmation email, or via your Avast Account connected to the email provided during purchase.
