Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

How do I activate Wolfram products online?

Online activation is a convenient way to activate your Wolfram product. Online activation handles most of the software activation automatically.

Your software comes with an activation key. When first running the software, an activation screen appears where you can enter the key. Your software from Wolfram Research then activates itself over the internet.

Specifically, the activation key is sent to our servers with a unique number that identifies your computer called the MathID. This MathID is combined with your activation key to generate a password. Please see our privacy policy for more information.

If your computer is not connected to the internet, you can still activate your software using manual activation. If you need to transfer your installation to a new computer, please use the System Transfer Form.
