IMPORTANT: How to install and activate ESET Mobile Security

Description: This article will explain how to install ESET Mobile Security on your Android phone or tablet.

  1. Purchase ESET Mobile Security at your local Micro Center store. Once opened, follow the instructions listed.

  2. Before downloading, you will need to enable installs from Unknown Sources. Without this, the install may fail and not continue. Go to Settings > Applications and checkmark the option for installation of non-market applications..
  3. You have two options to download and install. Take a picture of the QR in the packaging to download the installer - you will need a QR program to do this; QR Droid is a recommended application for this. You could also go to the link provided in the packaging via your device's browser.

  4. Once downloaded, you will need to locate the ems.apk file on your device. Use the preinstalled File Manager to locate the downloaded file. If you do not have a file manager, Astro is a recommended application for this.

  5. After locating and running the installation, you will be prompted to activate using the activation key. This key is located in the packaging and is hidden by a scratch-away surface. Use a coin to scratch away the surface to show the key. Enter the key into the activation key box on your device and click Activate.



  6. You have now successfully activated your ESET mobile security suite on your Android device!
