Mobile Protection

This Article Applies to:

  • Avast Small Office Protection


IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Mobile Protection has been removed from all Small Business Solutions subscriptions (Essential/Premium/Ultimate Business Security) due to low adoption. The mobile devices with the subscriptions activated are reverted to the free version. Small Office Protection subscriptions are not affected at this time.


As a user of Small Office Protection, you will have the possibility to install Avast Mobile Security as well, at no extra charge, and use the same number of seats as you have purchased for your subscription. This means that if, for instance, you have a subscription for 10 seats, you can install Mobile Security on 10 mobile devices.
