Enable Sophos XG firewall license key

This guide will show you where to install the license key for your Sophos XG firewall.

Note: When purchasing a hardware bundle (TotalProtect, EnterpriseProtect, etc.), experience has shown that the license key is automatically imported by Sophos itself. As soon as you put the firewall into operation, the licence is activated. A manual import of the key is only necessary for renewals and single licences.

1. Navigate to page “About Product”

Log in to your XG firewall and click on your username in the top right corner of the navigation. Then select About Product from the drop down menu.

2. Activate subscription

Under Device Registration Details click on the blue button marked Activate Subscription. A window will appear to activate the license key.

3. Import License-Key

Copy the license number from your license PDF, which you will receive from us by email after 1 - 3 days after your order, and paste it into the form field. In the following screenshot we have framed the field in red. Then click on Verify Key to read in the license key.
