Avast Reactivation for reformatted PC
« on: March 11, 2018, 04:08:59 AM »
Good day!

I'm planning to reformat my PC. Can I still use AVAST after I reinstalled it? I still have 7 months on my license.

You can, but note that your passwords will be gone after reinstall. I recommend turn on sychronization (in Avast->Settings->Passwords) you will receive an email with your backup identity which you can later use to recover your passwords from backup.

You can also create your own backup, just in case. In Avast settings go to the passwords tab and scroll to the bottom. You'll see backup export options. I used the .csv extension.
