How do I renew the license for my Avira product?
You can renew your Avira product license before it ends. But, in order that everything goes smoothly, we recommend that you renew your license at least 1 week before it expires. The remaining days or weeks will be added automatically to your new license, so you will not lose any remaining time in case you renew early.
To guarantee this, and to prevent errors during the renewal process, please proceed as follows:
You must use the Renew Now feature in your Avira product. If you go instead to the Avira website to buy a new license, the purchase will not be identified as a renewal. As a result, an error message will appear during the license activation process.
Therefore, please follow the steps below.
Open the Avira Control Center
Click Renew Now
A new browser window will open.
Choose if you want to renew your license for 1, 2, or 3 years
Now you will be forwarded to the Avira Online Shop
Please check your product, license duration and the amount of users, and then click the green button Proceed To Checkout
Please check your personal information
Enter your payment information and click Next Step
Review your data, accept the Terms and Conditions and click Buy Now
Open your email account.
There you will find an email with the subject "Your Avira product renewal instructions".
Now you do not have to do anything
The license will be transferred automatically to your product within the next 72 hours. Please note that your device (PC, Laptop, etc.) needs to be turned on from time to time within these 72 hours so the Avira product can align the current license status with the license management facility.
If you do not want to wait 72 hours and you would like to renew your license manually, please follow the instructions in this article.
In case you bought the new license as an initial purchase and not as a renewal, you might receive the error message 563. Read this article to learn about the options you have now.
In your Avira Account you will find all the information about your product(s) and license(s) – even outside our service hours.
