It is activated from the time you purchase it, not when you get around to installing it.

e.g. if you waited a year to use the license then it would be out of date.
WinXP ProSP3/ Core2Duo E8300/ 4GB Ram/ avast! free 18.5.2342/ Firefox ESR, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.11.0/ DropMyRights/ WinPatrol+/ Drive Image 7.1/ SnagIt 10.0/ avast! mobile security
Windows 10 Home 1909 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 20.2.2401 (build 20.2.5130.570) UI-1.0.505/ WinPatrol+/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro

Thats not good.

The period should start from the day of activation or atleast there should be few months shelf-life.

Thank You for the info

I'm just the messenger, an avast user like yourself and it has been that way for as long as I have been using avast (12 and a half years).

The only way of extending that would be to install AIS and not purchase the license right then. You would effectively have 30 days use before needing to purchase and enter the key.
