How to Activate or Deactivate a License Installation on Your Website
The new Thrive licensing system allows you to easily activate or deactivate the license installations from your website.
Activating a License Installation
This happens automatically once you have purchased your license, downloaded the Thrive Product Manager and used it to install and activate the products on your website.

After you have followed the above mentioned steps, along with the activation of your products, your license will be installed/used on your website as well.
Thus, your license will be used, actively installed on your website.
You can check this, by going to your Thrive Member Dashboard and access the “My Account & Installations” section, from the right side menu:
After you have accessed the “My Account & Installations” section, look for the “My products” section. Here you will see the license type that you have purchased, as well as the number of your “Active installs”:
If you click on the linked number that appears under “Active installs”, you will be redirected to the page where you can “Review active installs”. Here you will see the website where your license is being used:

If you want to deactivate a license installation, before proceeding, please make sure of the following:
- You have Thrive Product Manager installed and activated on the respective website

- First go to your Thrive Member Dashboard and access the “My Account & License Keys” section.
- Then, from there, click on the linked number from “Active installs” to access the page with the “Review active installs” option.
Once you have reached it, look for the website you want to deactivate the license from and click on the “Deactivate” button, situated on its right:

Important! Please, bare in mind that when you deactivate a license installation from a website, the content of the website will remain the same, but you will not be able to use the Thrive products on that website anymore.
