Purchasing Subscription for different product

I currently have a trial subscription of Total Security. I am interested buying Internet Security from an email offer I received as I do not need all of the feature of Total Security. I still have quite a bit of time on the Total Security trial though and don't want to waste it.

If I purchase the subscription for Internet Security, will that subscription start when I purchase the subscription or when I install the product.



  • Hello @alha ,

    • Once you purchase the susbscription, you will get an activation code.
    • Keep the activation code with you until you want to start using it. When you want to use the new subscription, just add the new activation key in central.bitdefender.com - My Subscriptions
    • Your new subscription will start ONLY once you enter the activation code in central.bitdefender.com

    I hope this clears your doubt.

    If you find this response helpful, please mark it as accepted / agree.

    Thanks and regards,
