    • Purchase a subscription directly from the program
  • Choose not to register any email and use the Free plan
    • Simply click on the Not now button; the dialog window will close.

If you haven't received the email

It is possible that the email we sent did not arrive in your inbox.

  • You have entered the wrong email address
    This is the most important reason our support finds when users fail to activate:
    • Verify that the email listed is indeed your correct email. Maybe you forgot or reversed letters.
    • If you have entered the wrong email address, you can correct it with the Change ... button 
  • Make sure that your email box has updated the email
    Multiple programs only read emails with a frequency of several minutes
    • In your email program click on "Get Messages", "Update".
  • Check that the email has not ended up in the spam folder
    It is possible that your email system did not deposit the email in the inbox, but in a Spam section.
  • Wait for the email to arrive
    It may take some time for the email to be delivered.
    • While you are waiting for the email to arrive, you can click on the Not now button
    • When the email arrives, you can return to the Help menu → Manage subscriptions command, and enter the verification code received.
  • Request another code to be sent
    • The verification code has a temporary validity.
    • After 1 hour or 3 failed attempts you will need to request a new one
    • Click on the If you're still having problems you can request we resend the mail link.
      A different code will be sent to you. The previous one will no longer be valid.
  • Make sure that the email is not deleted by your anti-spam
    If the email doesn't arrive, it is possible that your email system is completely blocking the sending of the email.
    You can instruct your email program not to block the messages that arrive from
