You can choose from several methods to activate your Unity license.
|Method||When to use this method|
|Unity Hub||The Unity Hub is the primary method for all license management operations. It’s a comprehensive application that lets you manage your Unity projects, Editor installations, and licenses.
If you can install the Unity Hub and you have an internet connection, use the Unity Hub to manage your licenses.
|Command line||Scenarios where you might use the command line to activate or return your license include:
|Manual license activation||Use the manual license activation method when you have limited internet access, such as a closed network environment or an air gapped network.
Manual license activation is a 3-step process where you need internet access for only one of the steps, and you can do that step on any computer, not necessarily the computer where you plan to use Unity.
You can use this method to activate your license, not to return it.
