New License Structure

The new license structure relies on someone logging into the Creative Cloud application. It is user-based as opposed to device-based. So, if Creative Cloud applications are installed on a computer, they don’t work unless someone is logged into the Creative Cloud application.

To sign out of the Creative Cloud application, go under the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner then to “Preferences” and then you may sign out of the Creative Cloud application.

If you install the Creative Cloud application and Adobe products on behalf of someone else be sure and sign out of the Creative Cloud application so that the other individual can sign in.
