Registering AVG products purchased via retail store or reseller

When you purchase an AVG product in a retail store or from an AVG reseller (such as Staples, Walmart, or Amazon), your product includes an installation card. This card shows an activation code, which you need to register before using the product.

In most cases, you need to register your activation code within the user interface of your purchased product. Alternatively, if you purchased one of the older AVG product types listed below, you need to register your activation code via the AVG website:

  • AVG TuneUp products with activation codes that begin with GSE.
  • AVG Ultimate products with activation codes that begin with GLS.
If you purchased a newer version of AVG TuneUp or AVG Ultimate with an activation code that does not match the criteria above, you need to register the activation code via the user interface of your purchased product.

Register via the user interface

Refer to the steps in the relevant section below according to your platform:

  1. Install your purchased product using the instructions in the relevant article below:
  2. Locate the activation code on the installation card included with your product.
  3. Activate your purchased product by entering your activation code (this process automatically registers your activation code). For detailed instructions, refer to the relevant article below:
