    I just installed the latest Avast Free and logged in with my account but the license says it's valid for a month only? I even restarted but it's the same. So how is this free then if it's only a month?

    I just installed Avast Free two days ago to see if it ran lighter than WD (it does, really, especially during downloads and installations) and it said 30-days license, even when I logged in. I rebooted and it showed one year. But I also went to my account and made sure that my device was listed properly.

    Perhaps it installed a trial and will revert to the free version after 30 days? Check the features:

    I think I read somewhere the license is tied to your hardware and depending on how many days you have left on a previous activation it will either extend your subscription for a year or continue to count down and will need to be activated again.

    Don't ask me for a link on that though. I was surprised how many days I got when last I installed Avast. #239

    Don't know if the Free License still works this this way. Have you tried Settings >> Subscription >> Register ?

    As i remember you had to register after the 30 Day's (or beforehand) and then you got the full year after registering, which had to be done every year.

    Regards.

    I installed Avast free and activated it on Sunday. It was only installed for about half an hour before I restored a backup. I just installed it again on this machine which technically hasn't had Avast before because I restored from a backup but Avast shows I have 359 days left, so I'm fairly sure the subscription is tied to hardware.

    I've come to the conclusion that if I need another program (thanks BlackFog) to protect me from my AV then I'm using the wrong AV.

    Isn't it time to start a new thread for the 2018 version?

    (Also, I personally would like to see separate threads for the stable and beta versions...)
