Apply License Key

You can activate a new license on the Sophos Central Licenses page.

You can also activate an upgraded license there if necessary. Some upgraded licenses are activated automatically.

Alternatively, if at the time of ordering you specified the customer's email address for sending the license to, the customer can enter the license key in their Sophos Central Admin account.


You can't reverse license activation. Make sure that you apply the correct license key to the customer. For assistance, contact Customer Support.

To activate a license, do as follows.

On the Sophos Central Licenses page, enter the key:

  • If you see Apply Activation Key, enter the key and click Apply.
  • If you see an Apply License Key link, select it. Then enter the key and click Apply.
