Share a license

If your license is not overused and you have a free seat, you can share it with your family and friends:

1.In the list of licenses associated with your ESET HOME account, select the license that you want to share and click Open license.

2.Click Share protection.

3.Select the number of devices you would like to share. Note that you can only select as many devices to protect as the number of free seats you have for your license.

4.Type an email address of someone with whom to share your license seats.

5.Click Send protection to confirm. The email address owner receives an email containing the license invitation and more information on activating protection on a device. This process requires logging in or signing in to the ESET HOME account.

6.After a successful login to the ESET HOME account, your friend can accept or decline the invitation. After the invitation is accepted, your friend can directly download the activated product to his or her device, depending on the type of a shared license, or use their ESET HOME account to activate a product installed using the standalone or live installer. A shared license with the appropriate number of shared seats appears in your friend's list of licenses.

For a step-by-step visual guide, see the ESET Knowledgebase article (not available in all languages).


Shared seats in your license appear in the Devices list on the license details page. Every shared seat is represented by the user's email address and its current status. You can cancel your invitation or stop sharing your seat by clicking the three_dots_menu menu icon and selecting Withdraw.
