License Migration

PrivateGSM license is bound to your device and SIM card.

  • If you change your device and move your SIM card into your new device, your license will be automatically migrated to new device.
  • If you change your SIM (eg: move to a new mobile operator) and insert a new SIM, your license status will be preserved.

Automatic license migration from one iPhone to a new device is NOT supported due to some platform constraints imposed by the operation system. Request a manual license migration from PrivateWave before changing your iPhone.

Trial period is NOT supported on iPhone, due to legal constraints imposed by the Terms & Conditions of App Store.
