How do I install Guardio on additional devices?

Whether you've changed devices or just want to protect additional devices, your Guardio membership allows you to protect up to 5 devices (any computers or mobile devices, including tablets) of your own and invite four family members to do the same at no additional cost.

Installing the Guardio browser extension on Additional Computers

The easiest way: Syncing your Google account:

  • If you sync your browsers to your Google Account, Guardio installs on your other browsers automatically. You don't need to do anything else.
  • If you need to sign in to your Google Account or Sync your browsers: Turn sync on in Chrome and Guardio will install automatically.

Manually installing Guardio:

If you prefer not to sync your devices or if you use multiple Google profiles, you can manually install Guardio without the need to sync devices.

  1. Open Guardio in your browser's app store (Guardio in the Chrome web store // Guardio in the Edge store).
  2. Use the option to add Guardio to your browser (Chrome users press Add to Chrome // Edge users press Get).
  3. Visit the Guardio Login Page and enter the email address and password you provided when activating protection on your first device.
  4. Check your email inbox for an email containing your PIN and enter that code back on the Guardio Login Page.

Installing the Guardio app on mobile devices

Your Guardio protection also allows you to use the Guardio mobile app for even more protection. 

If you already have the desktop browser extension: 

  1. Open your Guardio Dashboard on your desktop computer. 
  2. Go the the Mobile App page.
  3. Open the camera on your phone.
  4. Point your camera at the QR code on the right side of your screen under “Get the app”. 
  5. Tap the button that appears on your phone.
  6.  Follow the instructions on your screen to set up the app on your phone.

If you don’t have the browser extension: 

  1. Open your Guardio Dashboard from your mobile web browser.
  2. Tap on the dropdown menu in the top right corner of the screen. 
  3. Tap “Get The Guardio App”.
  4. If you’re using an iOS device, tap the button for downloading on the App Store. If you’re using an Android device, tap the button for the Google Play store. 
  5. Follow the instructions on your screen to set up the app on your phone.
