To use Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office (formerly Acronis True Image) on a Windows computer or a Mac, you need to activate it via the Internet. Without activation, the fully functional product works for 30 days. If you do not activate it during that period, all the program functions become unavailable except for recovery.
After Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office is activated, the program will continue to work for the duration of the subscription. No additional activation checks are performed. Internet connection is required for Cloud backups and sync, and for operations with licenses (upgrading to another type of subscription, purchasing protection for additional machines, etc).
When you start Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office for the first time, the software will ask you to provide a serial number or sign in to activate the product (you can also start a trial version at this step).
Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office Subscriptions are registered in the account automatically upon purchase. Account is automatically created using the e-mail that you specified during the purchase. If you provided e-mail for an existing Acronis account, then the subscription will be automatically registered there.
Click Sign in, and specify the email and password for your Acronis account. After you complete the sign-in the product will be activated automatically if the machine is connected to the Internet.
If your serial number is not registered under the account that you specified, you will be prompted to enter the serial number manually. Click Enter serial number, type in or paste the serial number, and click Activate.
