Sharing a license

I want to share a license from my Norton Premium with a friend.

But I don't want to give her my account and password.

The process online from the portal has me sending a download link to her email, but then she is asked for account information.  

This is not good.  There are plenty of other software licenses out there that can be shared without sharing account info.

Surely there must be a way to do this...

But what is it?

Re: Sharing a license

Can you close the screen asking for your email address, then open Norton and click Help > Enter Product Key?  Of course you will need your key which you can get from your account.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Thanks Krusty.

But...  if I have to give my login credentials or product key... that opens me up to privacy violations or unauthorized access.

Many products have a way to send a download link where the pertinent info is encoded in the link, and no info from the 'software sharer' is necessary.

Is there another way?

And thanks again Krusty, your help is always appreciated.  Here and at Wilders.  But please transition to MT.

Re: Sharing a license

Perhaps someone else has another idea.  I am curious, if you don't trust the person with your key why are you sharing your license?   I can certainly understand not wanting to share login details.

Thanks Frank, but nar, I'm a member of enough forums for now.

Cheers.

That's easy.

It could be a neighbor, it could be a cousin who is not that responsible, it could be a nephew who is a college student, it could be a fellow message board participant.... in each case, one may want to help out with a license.  But one may not want them to have the ability to affect your larger account or other licenses.
