Limit on Registrations?
« on: May 23, 2011, 02:41:34 AM »
Hello. I know that Avast! free is for home use, but to prevent people from using it for their business, does Avast! keep track of how many times the same email is used to register? I have had to reinstall Avast! a few times and used the same email each time. So at some point will it fail to register with that email, or is it unlimited?

I never heard it was a limit for that.

You don't have to worry about that.  If it fails to register with that email address, you could probably call or email support and explain the situation.

That being said, don't abuse the system. I'm sure if they found 6895 free registrations under the same email address, it might catch their attention.

Of course I was talking about legit email registration... not piracy :)
