Setting up on a family member's Android mobile
« on: April 08, 2022, 10:07:50 PM »
I am just in the process of setting up Avast apps on my wife's Samsung Galaxy M22 mobile, but I have a question that I need an answer to before completing the setup. I have a 2-year subscription for up to 10 devices for Avast Ultimate, which I purchased from an authorised Avast reseller. I have created an Avast account using my laptop Chrome browser and set up my own mobile on it for anti-theft/anti-hack purposes. My question is, do I need to create a separate account for my wife's phone to enable the anti-hack feature or can I just add her e-mail address to my own account?

Afaik, both should work for anti-theft, not sure about anti-hack, though.

Hi,

You don't have to create a new account or even add her email address, it depends on where (which Avast Account) you want to manage the app from. Please see https://support.avast.com/article/Enable-Android-Anti-Theft/
