Our Editor's Notes on Avast!'s Phone-Based Customer Care

Avast is a software company that is particularly well-known for its Internet security software. As one of the top antivirus software companies in the world, Avast gets a lot of requests for customer service each day.

It should be noted that Avast charges for both business and consumer phone-based customer support. There are support plans that you can purchase, or you can pay for phone-based customer support as you go. If you need customer support but don't want to pay for it, you'll have to submit your concern through Avast's online help desk.

Why Do People Call Avast Customer Support?

People call Avast customer support for a range of reasons, including:

  • Help with installation
  • Technical support and troubleshooting
  • Canceling or changing current subscriptions
  • Billing inquiries
  • Training needed in using Avast product

Best Practices for Calling Avast Customer Service

There are several things that you can do to help ensure that your call to Avast customer service is handled quickly and professionally:

  • Make sure that you have access to Avast customer service by phone. You might have a managed software product, a business plan or a Total Care customer service subscription. Without a plan, you won't be able to receive phone-based customer service from Avast unless you are willing to pay on a per-call basis.
  • Be prepared for the call. Have documentation handy, including order numbers, previous correspondence about your issue and billing statements.
  • If you are calling for technical support or training, have your device or computer in front of you so that you can work with the Avast customer service agent.
  • Have some way of taking notes during your call. Pen and paper works well for this, particularly if you are using your device or computer during the call.

How do Consumers Feel About Calling Avast Customer Service?

Many consumers are unhappy about the fact that Avast does not provide free phone-based customer service. However, those who use Avast's premium customer service options are generally satisfied with the support received.

What Kind of Issues can Avast Customer Service Representative Resolve?

Avast customer service representatives can resolve most issues by phone, including installation, billing concerns, troubleshooting bugs and incompatibilities, and training users in getting the most out of their Avast products.

What Can't Be Resolved With a Call to Avast Customer Service?

While an Avast customer service representative can detect incompatibilities between your Avast software and your hardware or operating system, and, in some cases, may be able to provide work-arounds, he or she cannot override an incompatibility that makes operation impossible. You would have to make necessary adjustments on your own.

What Should You Do If You Have an Unsuccessful Call with Avast?

If you get off the phone with an Avast customer service representative and feel as though your call didn't go well or that you didn't get the resolution you need, don't fret. You may still have options.

  • First, review the notes you took while talking to Avast customer service. You may be able to spot the issue that contributed to the lack of success during your call. It may be a miscommunication or an omission. Knowing about it can help you achieve a resolution during your next contact.
  • Next, call back. The next customer service representative that you speak to might be in a better position to understand your concern or questions and provide an adequate answer or response.
  • If calling doesn't seem to work, consider getting in touch another way. Live chat is an option for those who have premium support through Avast, and it has the advantage of providing you with a transcript of your conversation.
  • Avast also has a community forum that can connect you with other users of Avast's services. Experienced users on the forum may be able to understand your question and provide you with a quick response and solution.
