Chaos Group's products can be licensed either by online licensing or using a hardware lock/dongle:
Online licensingChaos Group's new online licensing option does not require a hardware lock, which means there will be no wait to receive a physical dongle, and licenses can be activated in real-time once an order is processed. Online licensing requires a stable, uninterrupted internet connection. For offline use, you may checkout your license for up to 15 days at a time. The Online licensing option is currently available for new licenses only.
Hardware licensing (requires dongle)
Note! From December 2017 users with hardware licenses can irreversibly transfer these licenses to online licenses. The process is described this PDF document. Please contact us if you have any questions.
With Chaos Groups hardware licensing system, you will need a USB hardware lock (dongle) in order to run the software. The hardware lock is installed and used locally on each computer, or installed on a dedicated server from which one or more Chaos Group licenses can be distributed to users in a computer network. Multiple licenses can be locked to a single dongle. You can find the hardware lock/dongle here. Please note that the hardware lock is sold separately, please add it to your cart when purchasing a Chaos Group software with hardware licensing option (applies if you do not already have access to a Chaos Group dongle).
