Manage your subscription
Manage your subscription
Avast products are sold as continuous subscriptions and you do not need to reinstall the application after auto-renewal. This means that your subscription renews at the end of each subscription period unless you manually cancel it before the next billing date.
Cancel your Avast subscription
Cancel your Avast trial
If you entered payment card details before starting a free trial, you need to cancel the trial subscription before it ends if you do not want to continue using the paid features. If you do not cancel the trial subscription, you are charged for the next subscription period on the last day of the free trial.
Follow the instructions for canceling your Avast subscription, which also apply to Avast trial subscriptions.
Manage your expired Avast subscription
For information about managing an expired Avast subscription, refer to the following article:
Resolve purchase and billing issues
Did not receive the order confirmation email
If you do not receive an order confirmation email after purchasing a subscription with a credit or debit card, try the solutions below:
- Check the junk/spam folder in your email account in case the order confirmation was filtered from your inbox.
- Check your email inbox and junk/spam folder again later. Order confirmation emails can take several hours to process and send.
- If you do not immediately receive an order confirmation email, you can retrieve your activation code via the Avast Account that is linked to the email address you provided during the subscription purchase. For detailed instructions, refer to the following article: Retrieving an activation code from your Avast Account
- Contact Avast Support and provide the full name and street address that should appear on your order. Once we identify your order, we will check your email address and resend the subscription details to you.
For a standalone purchase, we recommend trying a different credit card or choose a different payment method (PayPal or Wire transfer).
If the subscription is entitled for automatic renewal and failed, we recommend to update your payment details. If your payment could not be processed in the regular billing period before your current Avast subscription expires, we try to complete your pending payment up to 14 days after the expiration date with the new payment card.
Order is duplicated
If your order is duplicated, contact Avast Support so that we can assist you. We can combine your orders to extend your Avast subscription period or refund the duplicate order if eligible according to Avast's Cancellation and refund policy.
Charged on an expired credit/debit card
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.
Refer to this article for instructions on how to cancel your subscription.
Time taken to process wire transfer orders
Payments made by wire transfer can take several days to clear depending on the country where the transfer originates. We only issue the Avast subscription after the full payment is received. Before contacting Avast Support regarding a wire transfer purchase, allow a minimum of seven days for the funds to reach our distributors. If you do not receive your subscription after seven days, contact Avast Support for assistance.
More expensive than previous purchase
When you purchase an Avast subscription, we may offer you an initial discounted price. This offer applies only to the first subscription period, after which you are charged full price. The full subscription price is provided during purchase, and you are informed in advance by email before the payment is taken. If you are unhappy with the renewal price, cancel your subscription before the next billing date to stop future charges.
Subscription does not include the leftover time from the previous subscription
When you purchase an Avast subscription before your current subscription expires, the new subscription period automatically includes the amount of time remaining on your previous subscription. If our system fails to connect the subscriptions properly, contact Avast Support so that we can extend it manually.
