Did you get a notification from us?

We run software validation tests to check for tampering and invalid licenses. When we discover an issue, we notify the end user or organization and we provide options to resolve the issue.

If you or someone in your organization has received a notification about a particular machine, it means the software on that machine isn't genuine software. It isn't covered by a warranty or our support programs. And because it may not perform as we intended, it could pose risks to you and your work.
