AVG supports Licenses defined by a set period of time. The standard license duration is 2 years, as opposed to the typical 1 year offered by competitors.
Also, in some areas, OEM AVG licenses may be bundled together with new computers: the license duration of these OEM licenses is 1 year.
During the valid license period, customers receive:
- all virus and spyware database updates
- all program updates released during the license period
- technical support (24/7) via e-mail
Find out more about your license duration in the License component in AVG Control Center.
It is highly recommended that you register your AVG License Number. Registration is quick and easy and offers many benefits. Register with your AVG Authorized Reseller or online. Note that customers purchasing AVG through the AVG Online Store are automatically registered at the time of their purchase. Only registered customers are able to:
- receive discounted renewals of their AVG licenses
- add licenses for additional computers
- receive the Virus alert newsletter
- receive help with restoring their licenses if they are lost, etc.
Some customers may have received a "Sales Number" with their purchase of AVG. Sales Numbers are valid for 30 days from the date of installation and must be registered in order to receive the corresponding License Number with the full license duration. Register your Sales Number online.
Trial Numbers are valid for 30 days from the date of installation.
Both Sales and Trial Numbers support the full functionality of AVG! After installing AVG with a Sales or Trial Number, it is not necessary to re-install when you receive your full License Number - simply use the "re-activate" button in the License Component of AVG Control Center to enter your License Number.
