Pop-Up Problems with VPN
« on: July 20, 2018, 11:17:10 PM »
Hello.
Not sure if this is the right area. I have Avast Internet Security and recently (until today) tried Secure Line VPN (Free Trial). With 3 days left I have purchased this today (The VPN) and am now getting pop-ups at various times to try a month's free trial before purchase of the VPN!  I have all boxes unticked in Privacy under settings as you advised but still get the pop-ups. I never got them throughout the trial.
Thanks for any help.

Asyn posted this tip:
"You can disable the ads in the paid versions: Avast GUI -> Settings -> Privacy"

But, you can try to repair your installation and see if it stops.

Hi, tried repairing etc, cleaning cache, etc and problem still persists with a pop-up telling me that I am about ready to purchase Avast Secure Line. Fed up now. This never happened during trial period at all.
I think I should be entitled to my money back so will go that route.

Thanks

mikeyp582, can you try one last thing?

Remove your SecureLine VPN component from your Avast Internet Security, and install the standalone version.
Please, try the Beta version: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=219647.0

Who knows, it can make your pop-ups disappear...

But, if you want your refund, take a look here: https://support.avast.com/en-ww/article/24/ (Orders, Renewals and Refunds - FAQs)
