What account is used to add Family Member devices in Family Pack?

I've had Family Pack Total Security for a while and this always comes up when a family member adds a new device. They use my account log in? That's fine if I can log them in and not save the password information, but if it's a student away at college, I don't want to give them the information, and have to change it. I am correct that all 15 devices have to log in under the subscriber's email and password, correct? I'm not missing something?


  • Hi Les,

    Yes you are correct. And this is to have the Device Management centralized in your Bitdefender CENTRAL account, where you can, at any moment, handle all your devices (laptop, desktop, mobile etc). We're working on improving the activation flow and we'll release an upgrade in the near future.
