AVG Protection Antivirus (stands for Anti-Virus Guard) is one of the antivirus software developed by the AVG technologies for offering a protection guard to the users’ device against all the online threats like spyware or malware. The AVG Antivirus software is available to its users of different platforms like Android, Mac, iOS and Windows in trial as well as paid versions. All the trial and paid versions remains valid for a particular period of time, and after the completion of period the product gets expired. As a result of the expiration of the trial versions, the users need to purchase a new paid subscription of the AVG products. Thus, in the below information, I am going to detail some easiest ways for resuming the AVG protection after its expiration.
As the AVG trial version gets expired, an expiration message as shown below is received by the users on their trial version of the AVG software:
