You probably already know that Avast Free Antivirus 2015 is totally free and you don’t have to pay a cent to be protected. At least if you’re using it in your household for non-commercial activities. However, there is one thing you have to do within the first 30 days and each year after. It’s called registration for a license key (activation code), and it’s very simple.

If you like videos, there is a fantastic commentated video manual on this page, which explains the whole registration process in a few seconds.

Register and Get Your Free License Key (Activation Code) via the Program Interface

1) You can register within your product by clicking on the ‘REGISTER‘ button at the top of the main window, ‘Register‘ link in the status area, or by going to ‘Settings‘ » ‘Registration‘. If you are getting closer to the expiration date, Avast may also prompt you with the registration pop-up.

2) After clicking on any of the Registration buttons you will get a screen where you can select between free (standard) and paid (complete) protection. Basically you will see a comparison between Avast, Free Antivirus, and Avast Internet Security. If you want free protection, select the button in the ‘Standard Protection‘ column. However, upgrading to premium protection is definitely worth it.

3) If you selected free protection in the previous step, the registration window will pop-up. Registration itself is actually really simple and requires only your name and e-mail. You can even register with your Facebook account.

4) If you have filled out your name and e-mail correctly, or registered via Facebook, you should get the confirmation window with an offer to try full protection – Avast Internet Security. No matter which option you choose, you are now a registered user, and you can use the Avast Free Antivirus for a whole year. After your registration expires, you will need to register again.

The subscription window should appear and there you will see if you are registered and how many days left until the registration expires (by default it is 365 days).
