What's covered
Quickly locate your product’s serial number, so you can register or upgrade your product.
On this page

    Depending upon how you purchased your Adobe product, you may have received a serial number or a redemption code.

    You’ll need the serial number to register your product, update your product, upgrade to a Creative Cloud plan, or to qualify for certain types of service plans. Use the redemption code—sent in less secure situations—to redeem your product license and get your serial number.
