In Setapp, a device is a Mac or an iPhone/iPad on which you can use the apps from the Setapp suite.
When you sign up for Setapp, in any subscription plan, you get 1 device — that is, a Mac to install Setapp on. Later, you’re welcome to purchase extra device subscriptions: every additional device allows you to use apps from Setapp on one more Mac or a single iOS device.
Prices and billing. An extra device comes at $2.49 (+ taxes) per month. You can purchase up to 4 devices and thus extend your subscription up to 5 devices (1 regular subscription + 4 extra devices). These 4 devices are free to try during the trial period.
The extra device subscription is charged every month, even if you pay for Setapp yearly. The number of extra devices and the corresponding fee show up on your Subscription page.
If you have a monthly subscription, the amount of the first payment for an extra device may be less than the usual $2.49 — it’s calculated proportionally to the number of days left in the month you’ve paid for. All further transactions are performed monthly and constitute $2.49/month (+ taxes).
Manage your devices
All of your devices are listed on the “My devices” page of your online account. Once you sign up and log in to Setapp on a Mac, the page shows this Mac as connected to Setapp. Every “New device” slot on the page designates an available device.
Buy an extra device
Purchasing a device is easy and fast:
- Go to "My devices" in your account.
- Click "Buy an extra seat", then confirm your decision.
Done! You are charged immediately after confirming the purchase. Once your payment is processed, a “New device” section jumps into the list of your devices.
Cancel subscription for an extra device
If you no longer need an additional device that you've purchased, follow these steps:
- Open the "My devices" page.
- Find a device you'd like to stop paying for, then click "Cancel seat."
- Choose "Stop paying for this seat."
You can continue using Setapp on this Mac or iOS device until the next payment period comes. After that, Setapp won't be available on these devices. If you change your mind and decide to get the extra seat back, simply click "Reactivate seat."
Switch your Setapp subscription to another Mac (no extra device required)
To stop using Setapp on one Mac and shift to another, without purchasing an extra device subscription, do any of the following:
- Click the Setapp icon in the menu bar, then click your profile picture and choose Sign Out. After that, sign in to Setapp on another Mac.
- Alternatively, on the "My devices" page of your account, find a device to deactivate, click "Disconnect device," and confirm your action. After that, sign in to Setapp on another Mac.
