Managing license

You can manage your Acunetix license on the Profile page.

To activate and use Acunetix, you need to enter the license after the installation. After logging in to Acunetix, you are directed to the Profile page. On this page,  you need to provide your contact details. Then, you enter your License key and proceed with product activation.


Only the System Admins can access this setting.

How to change the license key
  1. Log in to Acunetix.
  2. From the main dashboard, select [Your Name] (top right of the page).
  3. Select Profile.
  4. In the License section, select Update License.

  1. Enter your new license key.
  2. Select Apply License.

You can continue using Acunetix with your new license.

Checking license usage

The License section also provides you with a summary of your license usage. You can also click on the count summary of Licensed Targets Used, and you will be taken to the FQDNs page:

This shows you a summary of how many different FQDNs you have used from your license allocation, the number of Targets you have defined for each specific FQDN, and an indicator showing whether the FQDN is configured on your local Acunetix installation or on some other installation.


For further information about the relationship between Targets, FQDNs, and Licenses, see What is a Target?

Note that FQDNs that are licensed but not configured locally will have the FQDN partially obfuscated.

Note also that even though you may define multiple Targets that refer to the same FQDN, it is in fact the number of FQDNs that count against your license allocation. This example, in fact, demonstrates that we have 2 Targets defined for the "" FQDN, but only 1 license is consumed.

You can drill down further into the locally configured FQDNs, by clicking on one of the FQDNs in the list:

You will reach a filtered list of all the Targets you have created that relate to the FQDN you clicked on the previous page.
