How do I activate my UpToDate software?

Activation is required for desktop or laptop installations. You will be prompted to activate when you run your UpToDate software after installing the first release of a new subscription period.

When the desktop installation is complete, you will be asked to login with your username and password to activate your license. If your computer has an Internet connection, your license will automatically be activated.

If no Internet connection is detected, you will be prompted to contact UpToDate directly to receive an activation code. The System Identifier must be provided to the UpToDate representative to receive this code. Enter this activation code and proceed with login.

NOTE: The UpToDate application on your machine may be shared with users who have an active Individual subscription. You must first deactivate (logout) before others may login. To logout, go to My Account -> Status and click deactivate. The next time you start UpToDate, you will be prompted to log in again.
