The program is already in english for me. Just got my license activated. But, in Google Chrome, it has added two security extensions, which I didn't really appreciate.

Thank U, Xtwillight
I've got 365 days.

A little tip. I put the Avira Phantom VPN service on Manual and disabled the Avira Service Host service too. I remove all Avira stuff from the computer startup. Just in case, I renamed all EXEs from the C:\Program Files (x86)\Avira\Launcher\ :)
The Avira VPN still works on my demand (when I want it) and there is no unnecessary services in the background.

Whenever AviraVPN will be updated, it will automatically install Avira Launcher in background, so I better suggest not to mess with it, trying to disable services/delete registry related to it, it will come back eventually. Dealing with Avira Launcher is like fighting against windmills. If you accept any Avira product on your PC, you should accept that Avira Launcher will be there as well. Also, with messing with it, you may break some functionality of updates for Avira products. I am a Avira's Beta user, and all I can say is that they are trying to improve Avira Launcher.

Sorry, moved to to right section

How to check the version of the Avira Phantom VPN Pro from its GUI?

Its version is displayed in SUMo as 2.11.3.29830.

Thanks

Edit :- SUMo no longer shows a new version of Avira Phantom VPN Pro. Could be a false positive
