SyncBack Touch licensing
SyncBack Touch (SBT) provides a convenient and easy way to back up your home or business information located on computers, mobile phones, tablets or other devices that run Windows, Linux, macOS or Android. However, SyncBack Touch is not a standalone application, it needs either SyncBackPro or SyncBackSE to perform backup, restore or sync operations.
Each licensed copy of SyncBackPro or SyncBackSE V7 (or newer versions) comes with 2 free connections to 2 SyncBack Touch devices. If required, you can purchase additional SyncBack Touch connection licenses to backup other Windows, Linux, macOS or Android devices available at your home or business.
The above example applies to both personal and business usage.
The free Touch connections are not cumulative. For example, if you buy two licenses of SyncBackPro then you have 2 free Touch connections per installation of SyncBackPro. You cannot use all four free Touch connections on a single installation of SyncBackPro.
If the 2 free SyncBack Touch connections are not enough, you can purchase additional SyncBack Touch licenses. A separate SyncBack Touch license must be purchased for each additional device you want to connect using Touch. Installing SyncBack Touch on each Windows, Linux, Mac or Android device, counts as one installation (including one per virtual machine).
You may purchase SyncBack Touch license directly from our web store:
SyncBack Touch licenses are controlled either by SyncBackPro/SE application (by default) or SBMS (SyncBack Management Service).
SyncBackPro/SE as the License Manager for SyncBack Touch
When using SyncBackPro/SE application to control SyncBack Touch licensing, the 2 free connections can be used without any serial registration.
If more SyncBack Touch licenses are purchased, you can register the serial number from SyncBackPro/SE main-window > Help menu > SyncBack Touch Licenses page or via the Licenses button on Modify profile > SyncBack Touch settings page.
SBMS as the License Manager for SyncBack Touch
Businesses/Commercial licensees are recommended to use SBMS with SyncBack Touch for security and licensing as it is easier to register and manage licenses on a centralized server. However, SBMS can be used as the license manager for SyncBack Touch only with SyncBackPro (SyncBackSE is not supported).
When using SBMS as the license manager for SyncBack Touch, the 2 free connections are activated upon registration of SBT license in SBMS (that means you have to purchase a Touch license and register it in SBMS to activate the 2 complementary connections).
SyncBack Touch serial number can be registered using SBM console (Service > Register Serial Number page) and configure SyncBack Touch server to connect to SBMS to verify the SBT license before performing backup, restore or synchronization.
