Apply Sync Home, Sync Family or Sync Business license
Windows, mac OS
Simply double click on the downloaded license key, or right click and pick to "Open with Resilio Sync". Another way is to open Sync UI, go to Menu -> Licenses -> Apply new key, select the downloaded license key.
In Sync using WebUI (Linux , NAS and Windows service):
1. Download the license key file.
2. Open it in text editor.
3. Copy the chain of symbols and paste it into the manual connection box ("+" -> Enter key or link).
4. Click 'Next'.
Note: if you are using Sync 2.0 - 2.1, be sure to add btsync:// before the chain of symbols.
If this is a clean installation of Sync and you haven't yet created identity, you need to first create it and give it some name
./rslsync --identity Name
"Resilio Sync.exe" /identity Name
Once the identity is created, apply the license file
./rslsync --license /path/to/Sync_Home.btskey
"Resilio Sync.exe" /license C:\path\to\Sync.btskey
Share a License Seat
Once you've applied the multi-seat Business license key to an identity, share the remaining seats with others. On license Owner go to License menu and click to e-mail or copy the link and send it to other device.
- 'Copy' - this will copy license sharing link to clipboard. You can then manually paste the link into an e-mail, text file, message etc which will be sent to another person.
When a person receives the link, they need to paste it to "Manual Connection" field in Sync. License Owner will get request for accessing the seat:
By confirming approval, you will grant one of your seats to that person.

Remove a License
To remove a license go to Licenses menu and click "Remove license" button. Note, removing Business license from License Owner does not remove it from License Users.
