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 my product key but can't remember where I got it from. I had to wipe everything off my computer. Is there any way to search my product key?

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.

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.

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

Bought this. It will not install on MacOS Sierra with or without Mac Update desktop.
So I downloaded the diskimage from here - and put the app manually in my applications folder.
It starts but tells me my registering key is wrong.
Never happened before that anything I bought at MacUpdate worked so bad.
Someone should fix this but I see lots of people here have the same issue and nothing happens.
This is very bad behaviour from both MacUpdate and the app developer!

Received a dud product key!!!!

I dislike watching my money being flushed down the drain but that is exactly what has just occurred.. I am blacklisting MacUpdate to save myself from their future offers.

I recommend that anyone considering this "product" do themselves amour and just burn your money.

I am having the same problem as many other people. The product key I received does not work, and it does not matter how many times I uninstall it and re-install it using the MacUpdate app, it still will not accept the product key. I am really unhappy with this purchase, and if the developer doesn't correct these issues they will eventually not even be able to give the app away for free!

I can't get a response from these people regarding a problem with my license key. I have tried to enter it numerous times both by copy and paste and manual digit by digit entry no luck. So as far as I am concerned the product sucks and watch out if you order it and run into a problem...NO help is comming

No details are given about distant Mac system : What to enter at "Hôte" in French, I guess it should Host in English ( I have 2 macs, backup on a time capsule and no real help about those features. In most case after OS X update or upgrade the data seem to be insufficient to reactivate the license. The email of the author could be usefully given. IMHO.

Absolute worst software purchase I ever made. I went to the product web site before purchasing to see what apps it supports. It lists 375 for the pro version. Here are just some of the apps listed on the supported page that it did not find, even though I have them installed: 1Password, Aiseesoft Blu-Ray Ripper, Amadeus Pro, DEVONThink, Flip4Mac, GarageSale, GraphicConverter, iBiz, MacHider, Mac DVD Ripper Pro, Parallel's Desktop, Pixelmator, Scrivener, SixtyFour, SuperDuper, plus 2 iPhones and 5 iPads. The only positive thing I can say is that it found 5 Popcap games that are not listed as supported apps.

Bought it thinking that it might be able to recover Office 2011 Serial #. SOL on that. I have more saved with 1Password than this app can discover.

Took a gamble, not knowing if it would work for the specific reason that I wanted it for. It did not. I was hoping to recover the reg keys for a few macsome apps I bought several years ago. It did not grab those so I'm disappointed. It did however do a great job with the adobe and windows products.

Will this software locate the product key for Microsoft office 2008 and Microsoft Office 2011? Most other applications have ways of locating the product key, but not MS Office.

Questionable results? Or Search function doesn't work. Typed in Microsoft, BBEdit, and Windows The search field doesn't narrow the results or highlight the items. I clicked on Name then typed BB and BBEdit shows. So the file is there. The search just doesn't work.

Very impressed at first run, just bought the deal before I upgrade machines. Found 39 actual and 100 potential passwords, identified all my mobile devices and presented a very clear report. Very useful software for those who chop and change installations a lot.

1. Very fast 2. Almost useless. Out of more than 120 apps, it found 20. I hope the developers improve this app and do not charge us again for an upgrade - as a punishment for our support.

I've had this app since it's early days and used it through one clean install. It doesn't find everything but it found enough to make it worth what I paid for it. Since I prefer to buy apps from the developer if I can it is very useful to me. And the developer has been very responsive when I had to contact him. I had occasion to use it last month when I needed to reinstall QT 7 pro which for some reason I failed to get back on when I upgraded to Yosemite early this year.

Basically, it does what it promises to do. In my case, it might be somewhat useful right now, when I plan to reinstall OS X.
