Locating your AVG activation code

After installing or upgrading to a paid AVG product, you may need to activate your subscription by entering a valid activation code (sometimes called a subscription code or license key) into the application.

Follow the instructions in this article to find your activation code in one of the following places:

  • The AVG webform: For purchases made online from the official AVG website, you can request that your activation code is re-sent to email address that you provided at checkout.
  • Order confirmation email: Purchases made online from the official AVG website receive an order confirmation email that contains your activation code.
  • AVG Account: Purchases made online from the official AVG website are automatically linked to the AVG Account registered with the same email address you provided at checkout. Your activation code is visible when you sign in to your AVG Account and view your list of subscriptions.
  • An already activated AVG product: When an AVG product is already activated, your activation code is usually visible within the product. This is useful if your subscription is valid for multiple devices and you want to enter your activation code on a new device.
  • Activation card: Purchases made in a retail store or from a third-party reseller (such as Staples or Amazon) come in an AVG box or plastic case that contains a printed card with your activation code.
