Activating and Managing Your Software License

You will have received an email from emoji trading containing your software license key, a long sequence of letters and numbers separated by dashes. If you lose this email you can also retrieve your key from the My Account dashboard on the emoji trading website within the Software License Keys area.

The software license key is required to activate the indicators. You can install the indicators on as many computers as you wish however the number of copies that may be used simultaneously depends upon your software license.

In order to use the indicators, you must first activate the software license. This is a one-time process. If you wish to use the indicators on a different computer, you must deactivate the license on the first computer and then activate it on the new computer. If you are unable to deactivate the license on your computer (e.g. it has failed or in no longer in your possession) then you can deactivate the license from the My Account dashboard on the emoji trading website within the Software License Keys area.

  • deactivate the license on the current computer to activate it on a different computer (see below)
  • enable additional indicators. If you have not subscribed to the complete order flow suite and have added or changed your licensed indicators you will need to temporarily deactivate the license (see below) then reactivate it in order to update the license status on your computer to access the new indicators
