Unused License Expire?
« on: February 11, 2016, 03:31:33 PM »
I have a license for Avast Pro that I think is 2011. How long does Avast honor unused licenses?
Thanks, Jerry

It is active from the date of purchase - not from when you first use it - so I'm afraid it has run out some considerable time ago.

It can be the license was auto-renewed each year.
Check your avast account to see if you have any license(s) that is(are) valid.

I doubt that, as auto renewal payment wasn't around in 2011 and the longest licence period (you could purchase) would have been for three years.
