How To Cancel Avast 60 Day Trial |Step By Step Guide
If you recently got yourself a subscription from Avast, then you probably got subscribed to their 60-day free trial first.
And depending on the day you buy it, the prices can vary all the way from $39.99 to $119.99 per year.
While having all of your devices secured is great. We also have Windows Defender that comes as a built-in feature in Windows 10 already. And Android is getting way more secure with every new security patch.
And I personally don’t use any antivirus software other than what my OS already provides. And of course, I have faced no problems so far.

Our thoughts on this 60 day free trial from Avast.
Well, it is a generous offer. You get all the features of the premium version. So you can try and test out the full software without spending a penny. And I have always been a fan of free trials.
Other than that, you can cancel it anytime within the 60 day trial period to avoid any unnecessary deductions from your credit card.

Is Avast good?
I have been using Avast security for much longer than when Windows Defender started to become a mainstream windows feature. And It never let me down for the years that I used it. It’s one of the lightest and least resource hungry security software out there. Over the years Avast has become much more than just an antivirus program which is great. And overall it’s one of the better offerings to go for if you want to protect all of your devices.
Can I get a refund if I forgot to cancel my 60 day free trial?
It is suggested that you cancel and unsubscribe your free trial before the 60-day period to avoid any charges on your card. But we do understand that people tend to forget things at times. And so, does Avast, which is why you can ask for a refund within 30 days from when your money got deducted. Just contact their customer support and they should initiate the refund. Although I cannot guarantee 100% success through this method. This is why it is better to cancel it within the first 60 days of the trial by using one of the methods mentioned above.
