How to transform your old Antivirus for Mac license key into a subscription

With the 2016 version of Bitdefender, we implemented a subscription based system, which means that there won’t be any license keys when purchasing Bitdefender.

1. Access your Bitdefender Central account here (if you don’t have one yet, please create it)

2. Click on My Subscriptions.

3. Click on ACTIVATION CODE, in the top right area of the page.

4. Click on Get your FREE upgrade now!
