Activating a paid version of Avast Mobile Security for iOS

Subscriptions purchased from within the Avast Mobile Security app are automatically activated on the iOS device you used to make the purchase. Subscriptions purchased through another Avast sales channel, such as a multi-device subscription purchased via the Avast Store or an offer within another Avast product, need to be manually activated. If you want to use your Avast Mobile Security subscription on another iOS 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 that the latest version of Avast Mobile Security is installed on your iOS device. For instructions, refer to the following article:

Locate your activation code

Using an activation code (sometimes called a voucher or subscription code) is the standard method used to manually activate an Avast Mobile Security subscription. You can find your activation code in the following locations:

  • Order confirmation email: if you purchased a multi-device subscription from the Avast Store or via another Avast product on your PC or Mac.
  • Another Avast app: if you purchased a multi-device subscription via another Avast app on your mobile device.
  1. Open your order confirmation email.
  2. Scroll down to the Activation code section of the email. Write down your activation code or copy it to your clipboard:
    • Tap and hold the text.
    • Tap and drag the highlight handles to select the whole activation code.
