FAQ: Adobe Acrobat Named User Licensing

Here are some common questions and answers about the 2018-19 change to Adobe Acrobat Named User licensing model.

What is Named User Licensing?

"Named User" (aka, "Subscripton-based") licensing is a method of authenticating valid software licenses. For Acrobat DC, Adobe is transitioning away from using serial numbers to using individual, Named User licenses. This means that for every authenticated user of Acrobat DC, the process requires each user's Official UCLA First Name, Last Name and  Email Address in order to authenticate their license.
