Protection against your greatest online foes

Avast Premium Security protects against all online threats, including spoofed websites and ransomware.

Now you can safely shop and bank online

Spoofed (fake) websites are one of the oldest hacking tricks in the book. Avast Premium Security scans websites for security risks on both your computer and mobile phone, so you can finally shop and bank online safely on any device.

Stop hackers from taking over your PC

Remote access attacks are on the rise — and the last thing you want is for a hacker to remotely take control of your PC and infect it with malware or lock your files with ransomware. Avast Premium Security now protects your PC against these attacks.

Whichever devices you use, we’ve got you covered

Viruses, ransomware, scams, and other attacks target Windows more than any other operating system. So if you’re a PC owner, the stronger your protection, the better.

  • Mac: macOS 10.10 (Yosemite) or higher with 750 MB of hard disk space.
  • Android: Google Android 5.0 (Lollipop, API 21) or higher.
  • iOS: iOS 12.0 or higher.

IMPORTANT: Avast Premium Security is not supported (is not compatible, cannot be installed, and will not run) on DOS, Microsoft Windows editions earlier than Windows 7, Microsoft Windows Server operating systems, or any others not specified as supported.

While both Avast Premium Security subscription types offer complete online security, each is suitable for a specific number of devices. An Avast Premium Security (Single-Device) subscription protects one device on the platform of your choice. The Single-Device subscription type can be used for one of the following products:

  • Avast Premium Security (for PC, Single-Device)
  • Avast Premium Security (for Mac, Single-Device)
  • Avast Mobile Security Premium (for Android, Single-Device)
  • Avast Mobile Security Premium (for iOS, Single-Device)

An Avast Premium Security (Multi-Device) subscription protects up to 10 devices, regardless of platform.

Yes. If you have 10 devices already activated using your Avast Premium Security (Multi-Device) subscription, you must uninstall Avast Premium Security from one device before activating it on a new device. Once uninstalled, you can install Avast Premium Security on your new device.To activate the product on the new device, go to your Avast Account, and retrieve the activation code for Avast Premium Security (Multi-Device).

If you already have Avast Pro Antivirus, Avast Internet Security, or Avast Premier version 7.x or later, you do not need to uninstall your current version. Avast Antivirus setup automatically detects these versions and upgrades the existing installation to Avast Premium Security (for PC, Single-Device).
