Vuforia License Manager

The License Manager provides you with the tools and information you need to create and manage your licenses. Whether you are developing or deploying an app, you need a license key. Generate keys from either a BASIC or PREMIUM plan. For more information, please refer to Pricing and Licensing Options.

A license key be used in multiple app deployments. You will only need to create one unique license key for your Vuforia Engine apps even when deploying to different OS versions.

How to Create a License Key

Vuforia Engine apps utilize a license key that uniquely identifies the apps and enable them to access features of the Vuforia Engine. License keys are created in the Vuforia Developer Portal’s License Manager.


You will need a Vuforia Engine Developer account to create license keys; if you don't already have a Vuforia Engine Developer account, See: Register as a Vuforia Engine Developer

The Buy Premium and Buy Cloud Add-On unlocks several additional features such as unlimited usage of Model Targets, Area Targets, Object Targets, and CLOUD add-ons for cloud databases.

How to Cancel a License

License keys can be both canceled and deleted. Canceling a key deactivates that key's license but a record is retained of both in the License Manager. Deleting a key both cancels the key and removes its records from the License Manager. Cancellations are effective by the end of the day the cancellation request is submitted.
