Using the licence key to change a trial account into a paid subscription or extending an existing subscription with a key purchased from another online or offline shop.
Activating the licence key is simple and fast and can be done, in one of two ways shown below.
1. Activate the license-key inside the BullGuard program.
To use your licence-key, open the BullGuard program and click on the Settings button in the upper toolbar.
In the Settings window, click on General from the left. Type in the key, in the Licence key field, and press the Activate licence key button.
Note that a licence key can only be used once. If you try to use the key more than once, you will receive an error message saying the licence key is already in use.
2. Activate the license-key in “My Account” section, on our website.
Go to https://www.bullguard.com/activate.aspx and login with your account details, then just insert the license-key and press the Activate button.
The licence keys are acquired either when buying a BullGuard CD, a new computer that has a BullGuard preinstalled version present, from the BullGuard online shop when purchasing a new account or renewing an existing subscription, or when you purchase BullGuard from another online shop. The subscription type and length depends on what BullGuard version you bought and, for preinstalled computers, it depends on the offers the PC manufacturer has available
How to open the BullGuard interface
To open the interface double click the BullGuard red icon in the System Tray (in the lower right corner of the computer screen where the computer clock is located) or right click it and choose the Show BullGuard option. Or simply double-click the BullGuard icon you have on your desktop.
Using a paid account after reinstalling BullGuard
To continue using the paid account when reinstalling BullGuard, you will only need to login with the same username and password used when activating the licence key. Using a licence key extends the expiration date so the remaining subscription time is not lost.
