Can I use 1 of my 4 licenses on different computers?


Recommended Posts

I have 4 licenses which was bought in 2012. I wonder if it's possible to use 1 of them on a computer that doesn't use the same internet.

I know that you can buy license that can be used on 3 or 2 computers. But these licenses is old and doesn't need to be bought again.

I' m not selling it, just giving it to my family?

Greetings,

Yes, that should be fine.  You can also manage your licenses by signing into My.Malwarebytes.com using the email address you used when you purchased your licenses and they should show up automatically.  From there you can manage them, see how many licenses/devices you have available for installation/activation and see where each is currently active/installed.  The information in this support article shows you how to sign up, the info in this support article shows you how you can manage your licenses, and this support article shows you how to deactivate a license if you need to move it from one system/device to another.

If you have any trouble with your licenses or problems getting any of them activated you may contact Malwarebytes Support directly using the form found on the bottom of this page and they will assist you.

By this statement, it looks like you are talking about lifetime license keys.  If that is the case then its 1 license per 1 computer so one key can only be used on one computer at a time.  If you have 4 different keys then its one key for each computer totaling 4 computers.

Hope that makes sense.

Yes. I was just wondering if it was ok to share one of them to my family. I saw some thread about blacklisting licenses, so I got curious.

You can share it with family or gift it to someone as long as it only gets used on one device.
