Renewing your BriefCatch license is simple. All BriefCatch licenses automatically renew each year. When your license is renewed, you will receive an email with a link to download your new license, along with instructions on how to install it.

If auto-renew was disabled on your license, either due to your credit card expiring, or if you manually disabled it, you can renew your license by following these instructions:

  1. Visit our license renewal page.
  2. Log-in to your account.
  3. Verify the information is correct under the Your Account Details form.
  4. Enter your credit card information then click Submit Purchase.

Your new license will be available immediately on our download page.

IMPORTANT: You must download and install your new license to keep BriefCatch active. Your license is installed within Word. Click on About under the BriefCatch tab, then click the "Install license" button. Navigate to the license file you downloaded and press Open. You should then receive the message, "Your license was successfully imported."
