Activating a paid version of Avast Cleanup on Android

A subscription purchased in the Avast Cleanup 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 Cleanup 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 Cleanup is installed on your Android device. For instructions, refer to the following article:

Activate Avast Cleanup on an Android device

Your activation code can be located in a number of different places depending on the purchase method. For example, in an order confirmation email, on an activation card, or within another Avast product. For instructions on how to locate your activation code, refer to the following article:

To activate Avast Cleanup with an activation code:

  1. Tap the Avast Cleanup icon on the home screen of your device to open the app.

  5. Tap Close. Your Avast Cleanup subscription is activated.

If you change or reset your Android device, you can reactivate Avast Cleanup via the Google Play Store account that you used to purchase your subscription.

This option only applies if you purchased your Avast Cleanup subscription through Google Play Store.

To reactivate Avast Cleanup via Google Play Store:

  1. Ensure you are logged into Google Play Store with the same Google Account that you used to purchase Avast Cleanup. For instructions on how to verify this, refer to the following article:
  2. Tap the Avast Cleanup icon on the home screen of your device to open the app.
  3. Go to MenuRemove ads.
  4. Select Menu (three dots), then Restore license.

The app will automatically retrieve and activate your Avast Cleanup license from Google Play Store.

Troubleshoot activation issues

In some cases, license synchronization may take up to 24 hours after purchase. If your license is still not active after this time, refer to the following article:

  • Avast Cleanup Pro 2.x for Android
  • Google Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich, API 15) or higher
