The Dashboard > FortiClient Status > System Information widget displays your license status. Your license status can change. The options are:

Description

Trial

If you just installed FortiClient EMS, the trial license is enabled by default. You should upload the license file you purchased.

Non-expired license

You can upgrade the license. See License upgrades or renewals.

Expired license

You can renew the license. See License upgrades or renewals.

You have ten days after the license expiry date to renew the license. During this grace period, the System Information widget displays the expiry date, which has already passed. In the screenshot below, the current time is August 23, 2019, but the license expired on two days earlier, on August 21, 2019. During the grace period, FortiClient EMS functions as if the license has not expired.

FortiClient EMS also displays a daily notification that the license has expired and that you are currently using FortiClient EMS as part of the ten day grace period.

After ten days, FortiClient EMS reverts to trial mode.
