Activating Avast SecureLine VPN on iOS

A subscription purchased in the Avast SecureLine VPN app is automatically activated on the iOS 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 either a valid activation code (sometimes called a subscription code or voucher code), or via your Avast Account that is registered with the same email address you used to make the purchase. 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 iOS device. For instructions, refer to the following article:
