Subscription types

Prepaid

Prepaid subscriptions cover a certain number of devices ("seats") you can activate for a set amount of time, such as one year or three years. When this subscription expires, the services on the devices will be turned off until you renew.

Buying and activating subscriptions

Prepaid

This is the process for purchasing subscriptions within the Hub. If you purchase a subscription through the Avast Business website or elsewhere, you should get an activation code you can input into the Hub.

  1. Navigate to the Subscriptions page
  2. Do one of the following:
    • If you have an activation code, click Enter activation code, enter the code, then click Activate
    • Beside the subscription you would like to purchase, click Buy now, then complete the transaction

Managing subscriptions

Prepaid

Subscriptions are easy to manage within the Hub. You can buy, renew, start a trial, and change the number of seats you can license from the Subscriptions tab on the Account page. For more information on managing subscriptions, see Viewing and Altering Licenses.

Subscription assignment to devices

Subscriptions are automatically assigned to devices when you select services for installation. However, you can manually change the selected subscription using the process in Applying Licenses to Devices.

Expiration

What happens when a subscription expires depends on what else is available.

  • No other subscriptions: Service is stopped
  • Another prepaid subscription: Devices are moved to the non-expired prepaid subscription
