Free License

HitmanPro offers home users a free, one-time license that’s valid for thirty days. This license lets you remove any malicious software that was found on your computer.
This free, one-time license can be deployed from the License tab under Settings:

You will not need a Product Key to activate the free license.
Simply click on Activate free license to automatically activate your free license.

If Activate free license is not available, please check the following causes:

  • The free, one-time license has already been used and is expired
    Please purchase a commercial license in our Shop to remove the malicious software from your computer.

  • The computer is member of a business network (domain)
    As stated in HitmanPro’s End User License Agreement (EULA), the free, one-time license may only be used for personal, non-commercial purposes. To support the license terms we have added technology to detect whether or not the computer is a member of a business network. This means that when the computer is part of a business’ domain, the license is not available. If your computer is a part of a business network, please visit our Shop and purchase an 'Enterprise License' or 'Incident License' pack.
