The menu item License management in the Help menu opens the Avira AntiVir Premium license assistant. This assistant helps you to license or activate Avira AntiVir Premium in an easy way.
Activate this option, if you already have an activation key and have not yet activated Avira AntiVir Premium . During the product activation, you are registered as a customer, and Avira AntiVir Premium is activated with your license. You have received the activation key from us either by email or it has been printed on the product packaging.
The activation of Avira AntiVir Premium can be carried out repeatedly with a valid activation key, if this should be required by a new installation of the system.
For product activation Avira AntiVir Premium uses the HTTP protocol and Port 80 (web communication), as well as encryption protocol SSL and port 443, to communicate with the servers of Avira GmbH. If you are using a firewall, please ensure that the required connections and/or incoming or outgoing data are not blocked by the firewall.
