Armor won’t install on router

I purchased armor and activated in the armor web portal. I can successfully log into the armor portal and install protection on my devices When I attempt to activate armor in the nighthawk app it only offers the free trial. I’ve attempted a factory restore with no success. Please help.

I have the same problem. Only a button to try the trial and then an error saying it couldn't be installed.
