You can add a client to your license and access the client's details, track the session history for each client within your license, add Alias, and more. 

Once the client is installed on your or your colleague's device, you can adjust its settings from my.anydesk II and changes will be applied to the client instantly, without the need to reinstall it. 

To make changes to specific clients in real time, you need to Activate Central Management first. 

💡 You can also adjust the settings of all clients linked to your custom build. For more information about how to do it, see Manage Builds

Add client to your license 

There are two ways of how you can license your AnyDesk client:

  • Activate the license key in the client
  • Create a custom client linked to the license and install it on your device

To add a client to your license:

  1. Sign in to my.anydesk II, open the Clients tab, and click Add Client.
  2. In the pop-up window, copy the License Key value.

  4. In the Change License Key section, paste the copied license key and click Activate license key.

After that, the client will be linked to your license and you will be able to see it in the Clients tab. 


Edit a client 

Central Management offers you the flexibility to modify the settings of individual clients, such as adjust client type (Incoming only, Outgoing only, or Bidirectional), update security settings, manage access to certain features in the client, and edit session permission profiles. 

All changes will be automatically applied to the specific client instantly. 

To edit specific client's settings, you will need to activate Central Management first, and provide the Private Key in my.anydesk II after each login.
