Activating a paid version of Avast Cleanup for 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. 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.
