Licenses overview

 

The AnyDesk license can be purchased directly through AnyDesk or one of our authorized resellers and is managed on the my.anydesk.com management console. In this article, you can find the license that fits your use case.

After you purchase the license, you need to activate it to use AnyDesk with all features available in your license.

If you wish to upgrade your license, please read I need an additional user or upgrade. How do I do this?

❗ Only outgoing clients that initiate connections to other AnyDesk clients for commercial use need to be registered to an AnyDesk license. Incoming AnyDesk clients that only accept and reject connections do not need to activate a license.


Licenses

AnyDesk offers a range of licenses that fit companies of all sizes and cover a variety use cases. A table detailing the differences between our licenses can be found on our website. With an AnyDesk license, users:

  • Enjoy full location independence
  • Experience flexible Remote Access around the clock from any location
  • Benefit from uninterrupted connections without a time-limit
  • Rely on military-grade security for secure remote connections

The license you have determines the set of features, customization options, and range of support available in your account. AnyDesk offers the following licenses:

Solo license

AnyDesk SOLO is a single-user license for self-employed business professionals and IT specialists. It offers a basic feature set for Remote Work and Remote Support. 

The license includes:

  • Devices starting connections: infinite
  • Devices receiving connections (interactive access): infinite
  • Number of users: 1
  • Number of managed devices (unattended access): up to 100
  • Number of total connections: 1
  • Add-ons available: None

Example:

Jack is a self-employed architect who travels often for work. He mainly uses two devices for work: one laptop when he travels, and one desktop computer at his home base. When he travels, he uses AnyDesk on his laptop to make an outgoing connection to remotely access large files on his desktop back home.

Based on Jack's requirements, he needs a Solo AnyDesk license.

Standard license

AnyDesk STANDARD is the ideal license for small to medium-sized teams and businesses, from IT departments to managed service providers who want to use AnyDesk with a basic set of business features.

The license includes:

  • Devices starting connections: infinite
  • Devices receiving connections (interactive access): infinite
  • Number of users: 20
  • Number of managed devices (unattended access): up to 500
  • Number of total connections (default): 1
  • Add-ons available: Yes (concurrent connection and namespace)

Example:

Company A has a team of 20 IT support staff that work in shifts. At any time of the day, only 5 IT support staff are working. Each of these 5 support staff make outgoing connections during their shift at the same time. As part of their company protocol, the IT support staff require these outgoing connections to be screen-recorded.

Based on their team setup, Company A thus needs to purchase a Standard AnyDesk license with 4 add-on concurrent connections. 

 

Advanced license 

AnyDesk ADVANCED includes the full set of business features. The license is designed for medium-sized businesses and larger teams across all industries for which collaboration is key and multiple concurrent connections is a must.

The license includes:

  • Devices starting connections: infinite
  • Devices receiving connections (interactive access): infinite
  • Number of users: 50
  • Number of managed devices (unattended access): up to 1,000
  • Number of total connections (default): 2
  • Add-ons available: Yes (concurrent connection and namespace)

Example:

Company B is a medium-sized business. There are a total of 40 employees from the IT Support team and the Design team who require remote software access.

During the work day, these 40 employees make outgoing connections to remote devices at the same time. These could include reasons such as the IT team providing tech support to clients or the Design team accessing high-functioning programmes on external devices.

In order to have a better overview of these outgoing connections made by the employees, the IT Director requires a management console to add or remove users, to assign permissions to each user, and to keep track of the remote software access usage within the company.

Based on their team setup, Company B thus needs to purchase an Advanced AnyDesk license with 38 add-on concurrent connections.
