About Passport Licenses

WatchGuard offers several Cloud services that are licensed per user. The Passport license bundle is a convenient way to purchase user licenses for multiple subscription security services in a single bundle.

A Passport license includes user licenses for:

  • AuthPoint
  • DNSWatchGO

License Activation Options

When you activate a Passport license, it automatically activates the individual product licenses for the Passport products.

If you already have an active license for one of the Passport products, you have several options when you activate a Passport license. Within the activation process, you can:

  • Add users to a license
  • Extend a license
  • Add a new license (Service Providers only)

If you choose to add users or extend a license, a new expiration date for the combined license is calculated based on the updated user count and term length of the license you activated

For example, if you have an active AuthPoint license for 50 users that expires in 30 days and you activate a 1 year Passport license for 100 users:

  • If you choose to extend the existing license, after activation you have:
    • An AuthPoint license for 100 users that expires in 380 days
    • A DNSWatchGO license for 100 users that expires in 365 days
  • If you choose to add users to the existing license, after activation you have:
    • An AuthPoint license for 150 users that expires in 254 days
    • A DNSWatchGO license for 100 users that expires in 365 days

Manage Licenses

You can activate and manage product licenses on the WatchGuard Portal in the Support Center. From Support Center, on the Manage Products page, you can see the activated licenses for your account. Click the name of a product to see the details and history of activated licenses for that product.

After activation, the only indication that a product was activated as part of a Passport license key is the WGPSP prefix that appears when you view the license on the Manage Products page.

To learn how to activate a license, see Activate a DNSWatchGO or Passport License.
