How can I move my Mac-only license to a different device?

If you want to transfer your Mac-only license from one device to another, follow the instructions below.

Firstly, you will need to unregister your license on your old device. To do this, launch the Mac app, head to Sketch> Preferences from the menu bar, navigate to the Account tab and select Unlink Device.

Alternatively, using your purchase email address, you can unregister your device remotely using the Unlink option in the License Admin page. You can also check your invoices, active devices, and more.

Once you’ve unlinked your old device, go to our updates page and download your preferred version onto your new device.

Note: Depending on when you last renewed your license, your license key may not be valid for the latest version. Make sure you download a version that your license is valid for.

Once the download is complete, install the software by dragging the Sketch icon to your Applications folder.

Once installed, launch the Mac app and within the registration window, choose Have a License?. Type in your Mac-only license key number and select Register.

Sketch versions 71 to 57

Once installed, launch the Mac app and type in your License Key number into the ‘Personal License’ section and select ‘Register’. Alternatively, once the Mac App has been launched, select Sketch > Preferences > Account tab to enter your license key.

Sketch version 56 or earlier

Once installed, launch the Mac app and link it to your license by selecting Sketch > About & Registration > Unregister from the menu bar and entering your license key.
