If you purchased a license key from a physical store, authorized seller, or retailer besides the Malwarebytes store, set up your My Account profile so you can register your license key to your email address. Registering your retail license to the My Account website allows you to deactivate your license, view billing events, download the latest Malwarebytes software and see which devices are using license keys. This article shows you how to create a My Account profile and register your license key.
