How to use the AdGuard license

To use your license on a device, log in to your AdGuard app using the email address associated with the license. If the license hasn't been bound to your email address yet, you can do it in your AdGuard account. To do so, open the Licenses tab and click Bind license.

Alternatively, you can enter your license key in your AdGuard app.

License key

A license key is a unique string of characters that represents an AdGuard Ad Blocker license. It is automatically registered to the email you used to purchase the license, or is provided to you when you purchase an AdGuard license from a distributor. With a license key, you can:

  • Activate your license in a product, if you don't have an AdGuard account
  • Bind your license to your AdGuard account and unbind it

When you unbind a license, be sure to save the license key first. You'll need the key to rebind your license or transfer it to another account.

How to recover a license key

If you don't remember the license key, check out your AdGuard account: all licenses bound to your email address are displayed there.

If you've lost the license key purchased from a distributor, please reach out to us at Be ready to provide a receipt or other proof of purchase.
