Avast Antivirus: Avast Premier activation with an activation code

How to activate Avast Premier with an activation code

When you purchase Avast Premier an order confirmation e-mail with your activation code is sent to the e-mail address entered in the purchase form. The following activation instructions assume that the software is already installed on your computer.

If you already installed Avast Premier but your subscription is not activated, you can do so manually with an activation code received in your order confirmation email after purchase.

  1. Open the e-mail containing your activation code and copy it.
  2. Right-click on the Avast icon in the system tray and select Subscription information from the menu.
  3. In the Your Subscription screen, click Insert activation code.
  4. Enter the activation code or copy and paste the code from the confirmation email. Click Next. Click OK on the confirmation.
  5. On the Your Subscription screen you can confirm that the subscription is active and the duration of subscription is correct.

Your Avast Premier subscription is active for the duration of the license period.

  • The activation code is valid only for the number of seats on your license.
  • If you have a three PC license, the activation code can be used three times.
  • If you need to reinstall Avast, the activation code is valid on the same PC.
  • If you already used the activation code for all the seats on your license, but need to transfer a license to a new PC, you need to use a license file to activate the product installation.
