Activating a paid version of Avast Mobile Security on iOS

A subscription purchased in the Avast Mobile Security 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 a valid activation code (sometimes called a subscription code or voucher code). If you want to use your Avast Mobile Security 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 Mobile Security is installed on your iOS device. For instructions, refer to the following article:

If you are activating your Avast Mobile Security subscription for the first time, follow these instructions to activate your subscription using an activation code.

Your activation code can be located in a number of different places depending on the purchase method. For example, in an order confirmation email, on an activation card, or within another Avast product. For instructions on how to locate your activation code, refer to the following article:

 
  1. Tap the Avast Mobile Security icon on the Home screen of your device to open the app.
  2. Tap UpgradeAlready purchased?.
  3. Select Enter Avast subscription code.
  4. Type or paste your activation code into the text box and tap OK to complete the activation.

Your Avast Mobile Security subscription is activated.

If you change or reset your iOS device, you can reactivate Avast Mobile Security via the App Store account that you used to purchase your subscription.

This option only applies if you purchased your Avast Mobile Security subscription through the App Store.

To reactivate Avast Mobile Security via the App Store:

  1. Ensure you are logged into the App Store with the same Apple ID that you used to purchase Avast Mobile Security. For instructions on how to verify this, refer to the following article:
  2. Tap the Avast Mobile Security icon on the Home screen of your device to open the app.
  3. Tap UpgradeAlready purchased?.
  4. Select Restore from iTunes.

The app will automatically retrieve and activate your Avast Mobile Security subscription from the App Store.

Troubleshoot activation issues

In some cases, subscription synchronization may take up to 24 hours after purchase. If your subscription is still not active after this time, refer to the following article:

  • Avast Mobile Security 1.x
  • Apple iOs 10.0 or higher
  • Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
