Astonishing annoying nagging license reminders (bis)
« on: June 03, 2019, 01:24:54 AM »
Hi all!

I'm worried about the state of Avast the company... I receive nagging reminder to renew my pro license every couple of hours or so... even when registering to post this message, I was redirected to some subscription part of the Avast Web site: is Avast going bankrupt and desperate for money? These nagging popups really do make me want to renew my license and rather search for an alternative solution.

Best,
Yann

Unusual to get a reminder every couple of hours, daily should be enough.

I don't know if this reminder gets more frequent as you get closer to expiry. 
How long is it until your renewal ?

That said, I have been using Avast Free with its various Avast promotions (read ads) for paid versions of avast and or additional avast programs periodically.  I just ignore them, but the paid versions of avast these ads for additional avast programs can be disabled.

How do you disable the reminders? I have the paid version and every 2 hours I get the pop up.

Not really great to breath life into a very old topic almost 3 years old, much has changed in that time.

Even with avast Free I don't get a reminder every 2 hours, I get one 12 days out and I renew, end of issue.

So in getting a reminder every 2 hours it is my guess that the subscription has expired, is that correct  ?
If not how long is left in the subscription ?
