Activating Avast Mobile Security for iOS

If you have installed Avast Mobile Security for Apple iOS and purchased a subscription, you can activate or reactivate the license on an Apple iOS device.

There are two ways to activate or reactivate your license:

  • Subscription code: if you have an email from Avast with your subscription/activation code or you purchased your subscription through another Avast product.
  • Restore from iTunes: if you purchased your subscription directly via the Avast Mobile Security app or the App Store.

When you purchase Avast Mobile Security Pro through the App Store, your license automatically activates on the device you use to make the purchase.
