To activate a Bitdefender subscription using a code received when purchasing the product:

NOTE: A single Central account supports the activation and usage in parallel of multiple subscriptions valid for the same Bitdefender product (e.g. Bitdefender Total Security for 5 devices and Bitdefender Total Security for 10 devices).

I have an activation code. How do I add its validity to my subscription?

If two subscriptions are identical and cover the same number of devices (e.g. two subscriptions Bitdefender Total Security for 5 devices), during the activation of the second subscription you will have the possibility to merge them into a single subscription, with extended validity.

To add the validity of an activation code to your existing Bitdefender subscription follow these steps:

1. Access your Bitdefender Central account.

2. Click on My Subscriptions.

NOTE!
A few rules apply when reallocating a device:

• a service is considered compatible for reallocation if it contains at least the same apps as the existing service

• device variation is not important in this case (e.g. You can choose to switch a device from a Bitdefender Total Security for 5 devices subscription to a Bitdefender Total Security for 10 devices subscription)

• reallocation cannot be made to an expired or invalidated service

• reallocation can and will be made automatically from an expired service onto a valid one
