Avast antivirus is a top antivirus plan which offers the user both free as well as premium plans. If you don’t want to spend money, go for the free Avast plan. It provides virus scan, junk cleaner, and all other basic security tools. If you are an internet user then you require advanced tools for web protection. Get a premium Avast plan and secure your device from all dangerous malware and internet threats.
Avast provides auto-renewal mode on its premium plans. The auto-renewal model prevents license expiry. Avast provides a yearly subscription license to the user. Once the license expires, you have to renew it otherwise you can’t use its premium tools. But when the user plan is under auto-renewal mode, it will automatically get renewed and then you can access all the Avast tools. In case you want to upgrade your Avast plan, you need to cancel the auto-renewal.
