I changed my VPN to London United Kingdom
but the British apps BBC iplayer and all4 will show me content but not play shows.
They arent seeing my location as United Kingdom.
i upgraded to AVG VPN to be able to do that.
Do I have to do something else?

My VPN does not renew for a bit and in trying to confirm I had it I inadvertently disconnected it. Is there a way you can connect again for me?

Hello Sharon,

Let's fix this together.

You have an active subscription of AVG Secure VPN valid till June 11, 2019. Click here to install and activate your AVG Secure VPN using AVG MyAccount credentials.

Keep us informed here.

Dear Sir / Madam,
These days I had a connection problem for AVG Secure VPN. I uninstalled and reinstalled my program. But I think my license has been canceled. My subscriber has only 9 months left. Would you mail my license number again?
Yours truly,

Oğuz HAN

Hello Oğuz,
We see that you have purchased AVG Secure VPN on 2/25/18 and it got expired on 2/25/19. We couldn't locate any active subscription under this email address.
Have you renewed it in February? Is there any chance that you have registered it under an alternate email address?

Thank you for the confirmation Elena,
I have cancelled the automatic renewal for AVG Secure VPN trial (which is valid until 2018.11.9). The subscription will not renew and no money will be taken from your account.
Feel free to contact us again if you need any further assistance.

I have bought a 1 year multi-device VPN subscription. I activated it with the licence key that was emailed to me. I also installed it on my mobile phone, and activated it with the same key, and it is activated on my wife's machine, so 3 devices in total. 

Now, on my PC (the first device), it tells me that I either have to start a free trial, or buy a licence, yet on the same module under the "my subscriptions" tab, it shows that I have the VPN, that it is installed, and it shows the licence number underneath.

Please help? How do I get my VPN working again?

Hello Philip,

We recommend you to activate it using your email address and password instead of license number.

Open AVG Secure VPN -> My AVG -> My Subscription -> Log out and remove license (if available) -> Log in -> enter your email address and password to activate it.

When sending an email from Office 365 Client on my PC to anyone I get this error,:my ISP has blacklisted the IP address my VPN (AVG Security) provides to keep away prying eyes.

ERROR: Task 'XXXXXX@bigpond.com - Sending' reported error (0x800CCC6F) : 'Your outgoing (SMTP) email server has reported an internal error. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).  The server responded: 554 5.7.1 Connection refused - OB115. is blacklisted. If you believe this to be in error, please contact postmaster@bigpond.com'

I have redacted to not show my real email address except to show the ISP responsible for the blacklist error.


How can I resolve this issue/error without being forced to shut down the AVG VPN connection?.

I'm glad to hear that your issue is resolved.

Yes, the security and protection are more complex these days and it requires advanced setup.

We appreciate your expertise in this issue.

Thank you for your time and co-operation.

This is a new connection on Windows 10. VPN turns on then says it is reconnecting then comes up with connection error.
I notice a number of clients with same problem, it would appear that you have not nailed the problem yet.
I have tried all the suggestions on this forum, I have also done what SUPPORT AVG suggested but they are no longer responding to my emails

Thank you for the information, Frank.
It seems that you have received the email from the concern team with troubleshooting steps and you have also reverted to it.
We guess you are referring to the acknowledgement email that you received as soon as you submitted the request through our online form.
For automated emails from AVG, it would appear as 'noreply email' which means you will not be able to reply to it.
You can reply to the email only when you receive it from our customer care team.
Have you performed re-installation of AVG Secure VPN program as mentioned in the email?

I use AVG Secure VPN on my laptop, tablet and mobile telephone.
If I temporarily disconnect the VPN Ion any device I achieve download speeds >55 Mbps
When the VPN is active I achieve speeds < 22Mbps.
I accept that the use of the VPN will probably reduce the download speed but a reduction of 50% is surely not to be expected.
Any suggestions for remedies gratefully received

Thank you for the screenshot, Brian. 

Using AVG Secure VPN, you may sometimes experience a slower internet connection. This is because VPN encrypts traffic and data before sending it to a server. This process may cause slower, but safer internet connection. This is the usual behavior. 

From the screenshots, we haven't found a major difference in the internet Speed (28.20 Mbps and 22.66 Mbps). 

Could you turn OFF AVG Secure VPN and test your net speed once? Attach the screenshot here to assist further.

I've just had the usual renewal email for my AVG products ie: this time it's my VPN. It says the price is $149.99c which it says maybe different to what I paid before.  I want to know what I did pay before as I didn't save the invoice, though I've saved the one for my AVG Security which is over a hundred dollars for last one. 

This renewal I assume is for 2yrs as the last one was?  I can't find what I paid last time anywhere in my product info when I go to My Account, only the price they've quoted now, unless it's the same, but it seems very expensive!   I'm free-trialling the AVG antitrack, so I'm tempted to cancel my VPN sub as there is a place there to do that. Can you tell me what the price is now of the AVG VPN or is that price quoted still the old price?  Just seems too expensive even though it's for 2yrs.

Jackie, open AVG Internet Security program interface. Click on "Menu-->About" and provide the screenshot (https://support.avg.com/SupportArticleView?l=en&urlName=AVG-Create-screenshot&supportType=home) of it here.
You can post the screenshot here in your topic. Click on 'Answer' & then click on the 'Image' [mountain symbol] & follow the instructions. 
To be sure, did you click on "scan computer" from the program interface or referring to other scans involved in the program?

The location is not the problem.
No more trouble sending emails, I left the AVG Secure VPN.
