    I installed bitdefender on my android phone last week today I added my laptop but central says I do not have a subscription for my phone however it has been running and installed just fine. Guess I will need to make another call! They will probably tell me to uninstall it and go restall from central. Others are having this problem also.

  • Hi I subscribed for a bitdefender Internet security for 3 devices. One on my computer and the other on my android phone. The on on my computer works perfectly. I tried to share the link to my phone to add it to my list of protected devices. When I download the bit defender mobile security, it says I have to take an additional subscription of 9.99/year. I do not understand why that is as I paid for 3 protected devices. Can someone help please?

    Hi @Natemank and @ToonAddict ,

    If you bought Internet Security as mentioned, that's the license for 3 computer devices , mobile is a different solution. Please find more details here:

    If uyou have other product, then repost here and we'll look into that.


    cheers,

  • hello community, i have several problems with bitdefender. I am using Bitdefender on Android.

    1. Bitdefender requires accessibility rights. Bitdefender cannot be selected at all when assigning rights!

    2. Bitdefender keeps giving the message there is a system update, but according to Android the software is up-to-date!

  • Same as above issues. Error VPN in very short intervals. Disconnected after two to three minutes activation.

  • My subscription was for 3 devices, 2 PCs, and an Android phone. The PCs are fine but the Android says it is a 14- day trial and only 2 devices (the PCs) show up in BD Central. I have tried several times to download from site but no luck, keep getting the same result.

    Because your subscription is for 3 devices and not for 5 or 10 devices, i guess your subscription is for Bitdefender INTERNET Security, NOT Bitdefender TOTAL Security.

    Bitdefender INTERNET Security subscription covers 1, 3, 5 or 10 Windows only devices.

    Bitdefender TOTAL Security subscription covers 5 or 10 Windows, Android, MacOS and iOS devices.

    So, Bitdefender Mobile Security for Android is NOT included in you Bitdefender Internet Security subscription.

    That's why your Bitdefender Mobile Security is a trial version.

  • Wouldn't it be nice if this fact was noted with the sales iI was advised that my subscription was expirying in 26 days. I purchased one license last year about this time and another at the end of 2021 as a discount product. Why am I getting this notice my subscription is expiring???

    I downloaded Bitdefender to my Samson android cell phone some time ago. It has been a disaster. Last weekend I have been bombarded with ADVERTS. It happened once before and for some reason it stopped. What kind of a Virus program is this. Is it a joke or what am I not being advised to change?

    It looks like I need a new Program to address these issues.

    Any other reasons to continue with this abortion of a program????

    I have the5 device plan and I have it installed on my computer but it won't allow me to set it up on my phones. I had the trial version and tried uninstalling and reinstalling and everytime I enter email and password it says I need to buy a new subscription.

  • I like the PC software, works well and somewhat user-friendly. I have had an issue with higher than previous battery usage with the Android mobile app. Will try re-install of (hopefully) newer version

    I have a GravityZone licence for 5 devices. Currently, I have 2 windows laptops and 1 Windows server configured. Does this licence include mobile devices (Android and iPad)?

    If mobile devices are included, how do I install GravityZone to either type of mobile device?

    Bonjour @JEAN-LUC BONNEAU,

    J'ai remarqué que vous disposez d'une licence Total Security valide qui peut également couvrir les appareils mobiles. Faites-vous référence au tableau de bord Central ? Pouvez-vous sélectionner l’option permettant d’installer une protection sur d’autres appareils ?

    Avez-vous également installé l'application Central sur votre téléphone ? Parce que vous pouvez également vous connecter à votre compte et installer Mobile Security à partir de là. Vous devez d'abord vous assurer que vous êtes connecté.

    Cordialement,

    Alex
