...This is awful customer service to say the least. The reps changed their stories as I asked more and more questions. They either do not know what they are talking about, or they are flat out lying...

Absolutely no customer service. Despite repeated service request tickets filled out, repeated calls and messages left, never once heard from or talked to anyone..

...In Avast's website FAQ's it says that up to 5 devices can be used on that same activation. However, my iphone will not recognize the subscription. So I emailed customer service to ask what was up, and the initial immediate response was an automated "we cannot find your subscription"...


...They make the promise of fixing your website then extort money from you. I could have fixed the problem myself had I taken the time..

They will steal your money and offer NO support or cancellation. Avoid.
