Defaulted to 14 day trial on android

Hi there,

Just purchased a subscription to Bitdefender antivirus plus. When adding a device via QR code, the android device has defaulted to a 14 day trial - i.e. hasn't picked up that I have an active subscription.

Tried adding the activation code I was given but it doesn't recognise that either.

It's showing as a completely separate line on Bitdefender Central, and asking me to pay.

My paid subscription shows as only active on 1 out of 3 devices.

Bit annoying, any suggestions?

Thanks.

  • How do I upgrade my recently purchased activirus to total security then? And how much will it cost? Doesn't seem very straightforward.
