Avast PIN. No idea what it is.
« on: November 11, 2013, 07:52:44 AM »
I have Avast on my tablet. I have tried to access it to see how I can use it but it constantly asks for a PIN. I have no idea what it might be. I don't remember ever providing one & have tried all the regular codes I use to no avail. Is there a way I can find out my PIN, reset it or get rid of this program if it won't allow me to use it?

Thanx. I tried to uninstall & reinstall the program but just discoverd my tablet will not boot now. What a disaster? No more security apps for me. safer without them it seems.

As Pondus's link would suggest you are posting in the wrong area, please refer your questions to the android section of the board.

Well, I can't imagine how avast! will prevent a tablet from booting...
Please, check the battery level. Is your device rooted?
Most probably you've set the pin while installing the anti-theft.
