How to locate your Avast activation code | Avast

Locating your Avast activation code

After installing or upgrading to a paid Avast product, you may need to activate your subscription by entering a valid activation code (sometimes called a subscription code or license key) into the application.

Follow the instructions in this article to find your activation code in one of the following places:

  • Order confirmation email: Purchases made online from the official Avast website receive an order confirmation email that contains your activation code.
  • Avast Account: Purchases made online from the official Avast website are automatically linked to the Avast Account that is linked to the email address you provided at checkout. Your activation code is visible when you click the Subscriptions tile.
  • An already activated Avast product: When an Avast product is already activated, your activation code is usually visible within the product. This is useful if your subscription is valid for multiple devices and you want to enter your activation code on a new device.
  • Activation card: Purchases made in a retail store or from a third-party reseller (such as Staples or Amazon) come in an Avast box or plastic case that contains a printed card with your activation code.

Order confirmation email

To find your activation code in an order confirmation email:

  1. Open the order confirmation email that you received from no.reply@avast.com (or in some cases, info@customer.avast.com).
  2. Scroll to the Your products section. The activation code is visible under Your activation code.

If you do not yet have an Avast Account, you can create a new Avast Account with the same email address that you used to purchase the subscription.
