Activating Avast SecureLine VPN on Android

A subscription purchased in the Avast SecureLine VPN app is automatically activated on the Android device you use to make the purchase. A subscription purchased through another Avast sales channel, such as the Avast Store or an offer within another Avast product, needs to be manually activated using a valid activation code (sometimes called a subscription code or voucher code). If you want to use your Avast SecureLine VPN subscription on another device, you also need to manually activate it. The number of devices you can activate depends on the subscription you purchased.

Before following the activation steps in this article, ensure the latest version of Avast SecureLine VPN is installed on your Android device. For instructions, refer to the following article:

If you change or reset your Android device, you can use this option to reactivate Avast SecureLine VPN via the Google Play store account that you used to purchase your subscription.

  2. Tap the Avast SecureLine VPN icon on the home screen of your device to open the app.

  4. Select Refresh. The app will automatically retrieve and activate your Avast SecureLine VPN license from Google Play Store.
  5. Your Avast SecureLine VPN license is automatically activated. Tap Done to confirm.
