A license key is a unique symbol sequence that activates AdGuard. A license key is required for AdGuard to work after the trial period's expiration. There are two types of licenses available:
Personal - This license key allows you to activate AdGuard on any three devices.
Family - This license key allows you to activate AdGuard on any nine devices.
Please notice: all types of licenses are universal. You can use any license to activate AdGuard on any of the operating systems — Windows, Mac, Android, or iOS.
You can manage your license keys in your AdGuard Account.

Note: For successful activation you need to have at least one "free" license on your account.
Once the program is activated with a license key, the license key is "bound" to the device on which activation was held. A license key may be activated on a limited number of devices. If the license key is already used on the maximum possible number of devices, you need to reset it before using this key again. You can do it in your AdGuard Account.
You can easily find which license keys belong to you in your AdGuard Account.
The binding of your license key with your account is held with your email address, which was used for the purchase of AdGuard.
Please note that it is often not enough to just find out what your license key is. If it was already used on another computer, it’s necessary to unbind it from that computer through the AdGuard Account before using it again.
If you purchased an AdGuard license key, your account is already registered with the email that was used for the purchase. You will receive an email with information about the automatic registration of your personal account, as well as a link to activate it. If you haven’t received this email or forgot your password, you can recover your password.
If you don’t have an AdGuard account, we suggest you register it by clicking this link.
An AdGuard account gives you an opportunity to manage your license keys and their binding with your computers.

You can renew your key for another year, switch to a lifetime protection, or upgrading to the family package (thus adding more devices to it).
If the license key is activated on one or more computers, you will see the list of these devices under the license key. A license key can be activated on a limited number of devices. Before using it again, you will have to unbind it from one of the computers.
To unbind the license key from the device, just click the cross icon next to that device, as shown in this picture:

Once you have renewed AdGuard for another year, you will need to restart the program/app or go to the 'License' section and refresh the license status for changes to take effect.
