Hi...

It's one key per copy (of avast professional,) so "lending" the key for another computer would be against Alwil's licensing standards and I guessing the EULA as well. I'm not sure what Alwil would do specifically in cases like this. Please see here...

May God Bless you! :)

"Lending" a license key is certainly not OK.
And yes, even using a single-user key on two of your computers is not OK.

No, each computer must have it's own separate key. Please see Igor's response. ;)

I'm not completely sure on this. I've heard answers on this before but I can never seem to remember them for some reason...getting older. ;D Someone should be along to answer this for you....

Best Regards...

If the use of both computers is for Home and non-commercial use (both apply) then you only one registration key for both.

Hi...

With avast Home, there is no notification from Alwil that I'm aware of. With the professional version, I'm not sure. I would hope they would let you know before one week. ;D

Best Regards...

If I remember rightly there is a reminder starting 21 days before expiry and that is also in the Home version, though I tend to get a new key before that happens, so I personally haven't seen that.

David is right. The avast home program will start reminding you 21 days in advance of the actual expiration date.
I had that happen for me last week.

I am not sure about the pro version but I would hazard to guess that it would be about the same.

Hi guys...

Thank you for clarifying this, I'm glad they offer this service for the home version users too. :)

May God Bless you! :)
