Mobile Protection

This Article Applies to:

  • Business Hub

 

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Avast is removing Mobile Protection from the Business Hub. In January 2023, Mobile Protection will be removed from all Small Business Solutions subscriptions due to low adoption. If until then you need to apply the protection to another mobile device, copy the wallet key from the Subscriptions page and activate the service in the Mobile Security application directly.

 

As a user of Small Business Solutions managed via Business Hub, you will have the possibility to locally install Avast Mobile Security as well (until January 2023), at no extra charge, and use the same number of seats as you have purchased for your subscription. This means that if you have a subscription for 10 seats with Essential Business Security for instance, you can install Mobile Security on 10 mobile devices.

 

Please note that Mobile Security cannot be installed, managed, or monitored from within the Hub but locally, on end devices. Also, the Hub doesn't keep track of the number of mobile devices with Mobile Security installed, nor does it provide any other information related to Mobile Protection.
