Authorizing subscription/membership products
Our subscription "Pro" plug-ins don't come with or require a serial number to authorize. They automatically authorize to your device when you install them from our Product Portal.
If you’ve just purchased iZotope software from our store or a retailer, you will be sent a download link and serial number to get started with your new purchase. You can authorize your products with our Product Portal, with your serial number (online authorization), or with offline for computers without internet access. In addition, you can also use iLok authorization to authorize to your iLok USB.
