SecureCRT 3-year license

To calculate the issue date for the final year of upgrade eligibility for a 3-year license, add two years to the issue date. For example, if you have a 3-year license with an issue date of Oct-15-2014, the effective issue date for the final year of eligibility would be Oct-15-2016.

Where to find the license issue date

* For Windows and Linux versions, the issue date can be found by going to the application's Help / About SecureCRT menu option.

For Mac versions, the issue date can be found by going to the application's SecureCRT / About SecureCRT menu option.

Upgrade eligibility can also be checked using the link in Help / Check for updates.
