How to stop the auto-renew service of Avast?

Suzanne Shanks

Avast is the most popular and globally known cybersecurity industry. It develops and distributes various programs and services for device and network security. These programs are available as freeware and paid plans. Users can purchase any of these Avast plans according to their requirements. When the user wants to use the paid Avast programs, he has to get a subscription. Avast offers a yearly subscription for antivirus plans. After getting your Avast license, users can run the premium security tools on the device easily. But you don’t program forever. When your license for Avast expires; it needs renewal. Users can either renew their license manually or go for an auto-renewal. If you need the Avast for a long time then you must go for auto-renewal. It will prevent your Avast license from expiring. But when you are not using Avast then stop the auto-renewal feature.
