Trying to clarify exactly how to use a 1Pv6 Family License.
I bought a V6 Family License a few years but have only really actively used it myself so far. I know now things are changing over to the more subscription based options and understand the benefits, differences, etc. but as there's not much mention of the one-off license I'm not clear how you deal with this. So I need to ask a few questions.
- Do you simply download and then click 'apply license' on each Mac in the family? Each is then authorised and works 'in itself' and with others who share your user-specific DropBox sync? You don't need to validate other family members in any other way other than giving them access to your 'apply license' link. You take it on trust that the four of us just validate our own computers and sync them for our own use. As of course we would anyway. My office Mac seems to think a trial has ended (maybe since an OS update) so I'm thinking I just need to click on that link to reactivate that computer.
- What about iOS? Is that another 'island' you buy and use completely separately? Sharing the same DropBox to sync if you so wish, which is obviously a benefit.
- Am I correct in thinking I am now on the upgrade 'bus' and will be able to use this family license in perpetuity and stay up to date as it is for the 'full' version that is now just being marketed solely as a subscription service? Just standard version updates as required, never a brick wall or need to switch to a sub? Hope so... I seem to recall that was the incentive to do it years ago, despite no immediate need.
Hopefully that's all I need to know but pitch in if I've forgotten anything. I have just used 1PW myself to record the same passwords and small variations over the years. I think I should now revisit sites and update with freshly generated ones for much higher security. I also see lots of dupes maybe from different devices accessing the same site? But I need to review, sort, update and get my wife and kids to do the same I think. Just want to clarify what to tell them to do before releasing the hounds. If you can confirm and clarify for me I would be much obliged.
Cheers - Matt
