How to enable the Emsisoft API

The Emsisoft API is not enabled by default. Please log in to your user account and navigate to your user profile in the top right corner of the screen. Scroll down to the ‘API access’ section and enable the API. You will get a custom API key that must be used in the HTTP header to access the API.

How to obtain the new version

As always, so long as you have auto-updates enabled in the software, you will receive the latest version automatically during your regularly scheduled updates, which are hourly by default.

Note to Enterprise users: If you have chosen to receive “Delayed” updates in the Update settings for your clients, they will receive the new software version no earlier than 30 days after the regular “Stable” availability. This gives you time to perform internal compatibility tests before a new version gets rolled out to your clients automatically.

Have a great and well-protected day!
