avast! Pro for former Theft Aware users?
« on: August 02, 2013, 06:14:16 PM »
Now that avast! with pro features (including some for Anti-Theft) is announced I'm wondering what about the users who bought TheftAware when it was standalone?
Will we get some rebate? Or, my preferred solution, a semi-pro version that only unlocks the pro features of Anti-Theft (I only use that part anyway, no need to clutter my systems with AV solutions)?

Would be nice to get some information.

Cheers, Christoph

this is being discussed internally right now. but very likely we'll give away free licenses for Theft Aware lifetime customers.

Same question, I have purchased Anti-Theft in October 2011 and using it since then... I still have exact time, purchase ID and everything... so if we get it for free how can we do that?

Sehr geehrter Herr hanschke,

daran hat sich noch nichts geändert. Ich verstehe, dass Sie gern was hätten - aber das, worfür damals bezahlt wurde, steht ja nach wie vor kostenlos für Sie zur Verfügung.

Man könnte es mit Windows vergleichen. Hat man Windows 7 gekauft, heißt das nicht, dass man ein kostenloses Windows 8 bekommt.

Die Diskussion ist jedenfalls noch am laufen.

Ich rate Ihnen, kommunikation in dieser Sache im Forum zu halten - wir beide können natürlich gerne darüber diskutieren, aber ich habe keinerlei Einfluss auf den Prozess.

beste Grüße,

thats bad because I have bought Antitheft for getting new features for lifetime and support. I have got now my feature added with taking picture but have to pay again. I am very angry that in the past I have spend my money for this!

yeah, let's hope that they will honor theftaware lifetime subscriptions.
i would really like to be able to download just the avast anti theft package, then recognize the subscription via the google account, w/o the whole suite and let it install the root version, which sadly isn't possible right now.

Hmm just saying if you have Windows 7 you can upgrade to Windows 8 for less money as if you had nothing... and well I only want the new features for Anti Theft and not all the Premium features.... would also be happy with a lower cost "half" premium package only for the Anti Theft features...

thats a good suggestion. Anti theft only without the blootware for a less upgrade prize!

yes, but only through the bloated avast suite, which then starts scanning my phone and which i have to uninstall manually.
