How to get the activation code when installing on another device?


I would like to share my premium plan with family members as I can share it with upto 5 devices. but everytime I share the download link they are asked for an activation code and I do not know how to access and share that with them.

can someone please help me to locate my activation code as I have tried but have not been able to locate it.

Many Thanks

    Well, as far as I know you cannot know the activation code once it has been activated. The only help can be provided by bitdefender support by dropping an email at [email protected]com

    Response may be delayed due to less staff and covid19. Rest be assured, they will reply back asap.

    Here is another way you can activate the bitdefender product on other device. Make sure you know how many device you can activate the premium version on. Download the trial version of your software from

    Run the setup file and install the product. Once the product is successfully installed, a bitdefender agent window will open asking you to enter registered details of your bitdefender account (like email & password) .Once you will enter and successfully login, the said product will automatically be synchronized with your central account.

    If this helps, kindly mark answer as agree/ accepted

  • Nope, that doesnt work.

  • Hello @OhMan ,

    Installing Bitdefender Total Security or Mobile Security on other devices, once subcription has been bought, can be shared via Bitdefender Central , once you create an account there. From there, you can nominate an email adress to which you may send the activation license.

    Hope it helps,
