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. 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.
Locate your activation code
Using an activation code (sometimes called a voucher or subscription code) is the standard method to manually activate an Avast SecureLine VPN subscription. You can find your activation code in:
- Avast SecureLine VPN app: if you purchased a subscription via the Avast SecureLine VPN app on your mobile device.
- Order confirmation email: if you purchased a subscription from the Avast Store or another Avast product on your PC or Mac.
- Another Avast app: if you purchased a subscription via another Avast app on your mobile device.

- Restore with Avast Account: if you purchased a subscription from the Avast Store or another Avast product on your PC or Mac, you can use this option to activate Avast SecureLine VPN using your Avast Account registered with the same email address that you used during the subscription purchase.
