How to cancel your AVG subscription

When you purchase an AVG subscription (formally known as “Continuing Protection Service”), it will continue until it is canceled. You will be billed again 15 days prior to the start of the next subscription period. You will receive a notification email about the upcoming automatic extension 45 days prior to the start of the next subscription period. The automatic extension can be disabled up to 16 days prior to the start of the next subscription period.

Canceling your subscription will not refund your current AVG subscription, and you will be able to continue using AVG until your current subscription period expires. You will also be able to extend your subscription when you start receiving the expiration notifications, typically 45 days before expiration.

There are two ways to cancel the automatic extension:

  • Using the cancellation link in the notification email you receive.
  • Using your AVG MyAccount to manage your orders and subscriptions.

The automatic extension can be cancelled via your AVG MyAccount.
