Smart tool for recovering lost product keys for installed software.

Overview

Mac Product Key Finder Pro is an application designed to safeguard activation keys for software products installed on your Mac. Mac Product Key Finder will scan your local and remote Mac for installed software and show you your serials numbers, then allow printing or saving software-license information to a file. Mac Product Key Finder can be very useful for backup purposes, to save all your serial numbers before it is too late. Furthermore, Mac Product Key Finder Pro will scan different partitions or drives, networked Macs, and TimeMachine backups. A command-line version included.

Mac Product Key Finder will recover your serial numbers, and serial numbers of devices such as iPod, iPad, and iPhone if you have connected then with iTunes before--you may need them in case you lose your devices. It can recover product keys for Adobe Photoshop CS3-CS6, Microsoft Office 2008, WinZip for Mac, Parallel's Desktop, CleanMyMac, AppZapper, and many more. It currently supports 864 applications.

With no virtually no reviews I felt I was taking a bit of a gamble with this, but was tempted by the promo price as I could see a use for it. It works much better than I expected, and it will be useful for me.

The obvious limitation is that it doesn't support ALL apps, so it is complementary to any other system for managing serial numbers, but it is a work-in-progress which I would like to encourage.

My apps folder has 178 items, but many of these are free or App Store so would not be found by Product Key Finder, which says it has found 34 SNs and 76 potential SNs. Not sure what a potential SN is but there are more than 34 useful ones, so it has possibly found up to 110 of my 178. Enough to be useful, allowing for the ones that don't have SNs.

The shotgun mode finds more, including apps I have bought and uninstalled. The presentation in Shotgun mode is not very friendly. Running a Shotgun scan results in a request to share with developer for improvement. I usually do send support data to developers, as it is usually anonymous, but baulked at sending all my serial numbers and registration info.

The full price is maybe a bit steep at this stage, but its worth will vary for everyone.

I have to say this is a very handy tool for the software I download and try often it finds the serial keys for most of them. I love this software. Makes my life easier and it’s hassle free!

Very handy utility. It doesn't find every product key, but it sure finds a lot them. One issue I have is that when I click the Refresh icon on the toolbar the application quits unexpectedly and prompts me to reopen. Not sure what's going on thered, and hopefully it does not corrupt anything in the process. This happens EVERY time I hit Refresh. Developers might want to take a look at that. I'm running it on a 2015 MacBook Pro with macOS Sierra.

I have installed a lot of apps but very few have been detected, these are products from Adobe. The rest is "invisible". If you have over 50 apps installed and only 10 were found... The Mac Product Key Finder Pro is kinda futile.

Dear Hipal, we are sorry for the delay in response to your feedback. This question was answered a few times previously under our product review. Anyway, we repost it ones more.
We do believe that expectations towards this kind of software will never be reached technically. Let us explain, what we mean from the technical point of view:
10/50 is not a bad number at all actually.

1. First of all, take a look at these 50 apps you have. How many of them are freeware (they literally don’t have any product keys to be recovered), how many of them do not have serial numbers (those purchased at Mac AppStore, does not come with product keys)? Some apps will be installed with 1 product key but will appear as several Apps in your Applications folder. We pretty sure list already shrink from 50 to around 10-20.
2. Each software is unique, and there is no centralized storage/place for a developer to store license key. Sometimes it is easy to figure out where the developer has hidden product key, sometimes very hard, sometimes close to impossible.
3. Some developers encrypt their product keys. So, even though we might find out where it is stored, it usually is very hard to decrypt it. If the simple cipher is used – we can deal with it if any stronger encryption is being used – it would take lots of skills and time to reverse engineer encryption method.
4. There are billions of software out there. Each software is unique and hides product key is different place – it will be impossible to support each of them.
Therefore, we hope that these technical specifications will help to understand program work from the inside.
In case you have additional questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact our customer service assistance at any convenient for you time.

Nothing like this for finding serial numbers, we all forget them from time to time, and this can be a life saver! Having had my than my fair share of hardware failures, what with the pretty poor quality of modern Apple kit these days, this and a good backup from Carbon Copy Cloner make 2 essential tools for your Mac!

I haven't tried this app, primarily because I have collected most of my serial numbers manually. So I don't need Mac Product Key Finder Pro. That said, I think it's easy for people to have elevated expectations for what an app like this can do. Before paying for the Pro version, or even the free version, you should visit the developer's web site and review the list of supported apps (https://mac-product-key-finder.com/supported.html). If Mac Product Key Finder Pro cannot find the serial number for any of the listed apps that you have installed, then you have something to complain about. If you have an issue, I suggest you communicate with the developer privately so that he will have a chance to figure out what's not working. That's not to say you shouldn't post here as well, but if you actually want a solution to your problem, working with the developer is the only route to take. Personally I can only imagine the work involved in figuring out how to find serial numbers for all the apps listed. One would have to have made a serious study of the subject even before building an app to utilize what you learned. Perhaps, though, he could have used more beta testers to root out problems. It might have saved him some of the flack he's getting here it the app had been more thoroughly tested. Still, if he can improve the software so that it's more reliable, and make a bigger point in the promo blurb at the top of this page of directing potential customers to the supported products page, it may eventually be an important tool for people with large investments in software. Programs can themselves lose track of their registration information when something dramatic happens to the system on which it's installed. An operating system upgrade can cause this, as can restoring your system from a Time Machine backup. I've seen this happen with Adobe apps in particular in both these situations. So having your serial numbers handy can be important. By the way, since most software is now purchased online, your serial numbers will be in the e-mail receipts—if you saved them. That's how I found most of the serial numbers I've catalogued. I've also made a habit of printing to PDF the web receipts I get after I buy something. If you didn't save your receipts, well...you need Mac Product Key Finder Pro. Even though I haven't used this product, I'm going to give the developer an A for effort, just to balance things out a bit.

Purchased yesterday, because I want to retrieve the key from Adobe software that was installed on my Mac, but sadly Key Finder Pro did not retrieve those keys from my hdd. For me the $30,- is a waste....

Add me to the list of unsatisfied users. I paid for and downloaded the pro version, and after creating an "unidentified developer" security exception so I could run the software, it found a grand total of 11 licenses, with "24 potential" license numbers. I did read the disclaimers about it not being able to find licenses from apps purchased from the app store, but most of mine were downloaded from MacUpdate. I have over 120 apps installed.

We are sorry, that you got disappointed with number of recovered licenses software, but we do believe that expectations towards this kind of software will never be reached technically. Let us explain, what we mean from technical point of view:
11/120 is not a bad number at all actually.

1. First of all, take a look at these 120 apps you have. How many of them are freeware (they literally don’t have any product keys to be recovered), how many of them does not have serial numbers (those purchased at Mac AppStore, does not come with product keys). Some apps will be installed with 1 product key, but will appear as several Apps in your Applications folder. We pretty sure list already shrink from 120 to around 30-40.
2. Each software is unique, and there is no centralized storage / place for a developer to store license key. Sometimes it is easy to figure out where developer has hidden product key, sometimes very hard, sometimes close to impossible.
3. Some developers encrypt their product keys. So, even though we might find out where it is stored, it usually is very hard to decrypt it. If simple cipher is used – we can deal with it, if any stronger encryption is being used – it would take lots of skills and time to reverse engineer encryption method.

I downloaded the trial for review. The application launched as it should; however, it could not identify and reveal ONE product key, not ONE.

Dear Meister-Fritz,
Please accept our apologies for any difficulties. Let us explain how this app works.

It is nearly impossible to support all program in the world because there are millions of them, and each of them is unique. Some developers encrypt their product keys. So, even though we might find out where it is stored, it usually is very hard to decrypt it. If simple cipher is used – we can deal with it, if any stronger encryption is being used – it would take lots of skills and time to reverse engineer encryption method.

In addition, we suggest to ensure that you are not trying to retrieve serial numbers from freeware (they literally don’t have any product keys to be recovered) and products purchased at Mac AppStore - these does not come with product keys as well.

Currently Mac Product Key Finder Pro supports 375 software titles on its list: https://mac-product-key-finder.com/supported.html
When you have installed and registered apps from MPKFP list on your system, keyfinder have to recover license information.
