Yes! What you read was right, Avast Free antivirus no longer needs registration and newer versions don’t ask you to register and the older versions of Avast will continue to work even after they’ve expired. Even we’ve written an article in the past on how to register Avast Free Antivirus to get a one year license key, that post is redundant now.
Avast Free Antivirus no longer requires registration to use for one year
We don’t know when Avast Software has removed this requirement for using their product for a long time (one year), expiring the free antivirus version after thirty days and nagging users to register is meaningless IMO considering it was offered as free.
This is the official and this is what the Avast free antivirus registration page says.
“Good news! You no longer need to register Newer versions of Avast Free Antivirus will no longer ask you to register, and older versions will keep working even after they’ve “expired” “.
Free users already annoyed with their popups to purchase or upgrade to premium products and register ad only adds salt to injury.
After installing Avast Free antivirus and when you select ‘registration information’ in its tray icon, subscription tab in Avast Settings displays how many days remaining and valid till date.
Note: However, you need to insert activation code or license file in the Subscription settings, if you’ve purchased Avast.
