Bombarded by ads wanting me to purchase more Avast products
« on: March 23, 2019, 10:40:54 PM »
I had to create an account, go to my email, verify my email address, and then log on with my new registered account in order to ask this question... "How do I get Avast to STOP sending ads to buy or try more of their products? If I can't try a free 2 month antivirus without being HOUNDED to buy, buy, buy, why would I buy more products without anticipating more and more ads?  STOP!!! Leave me alone to make up my mind whether or not I want to purchase Avast products! ...and PLEASE, stop trying to scare me with warnings of breeches and lack of safety everytime I do a scan!!!

You can disable the ads in the paid versions: Avast GUI -> Settings -> Personal Privacy

You could also just install the regular (non 60 day trial) version of the program.  That should give you 30 days use before having to purchase, but you wouldn't have to enter any payment information in advance. 

Yes you would also get reminders leading up to the 30 day end and you would also be likely to get a purchase discount offer close to the end of the 30 days.

Personally If I was ever to purchase avast this is the route I would go down as each renewal time is likely to get more discount offers.  If you had elected to have the Auto Payment Renewal, that would be at the normal price.
