Identifying Authentic Intuit Software

Always use authentic genuine software

Make sure you have authentic Intuit-manufactured CDROMs

To find out more about the risks of installing and using software from counterfeit discs, please visit Intuit’s piracy information page.

To report someone who you believe is selling counterfeit CDROMs, please visit our piracy information page.

You may also decide to report the incident to law enforcement authorities in the area where the online seller is located. This could be especially important if you believe the seller is engaged in ongoing counterfeiting activity.

QuickBooks® License Labels

When purchasing QuickBooks software, you can always look at the License Label that came with your software to help determine whether you have obtained a legitimate, valid license for, and copy of, QuickBooks software. Beginning October, 2004, all authentic CDROM discs containing QuickBooks software are accompanied by an official License Label which contains the following features:

  • a license number for the software;
  • a product number for the software; and
  • a unique authenticity feature on the right end of the label which contains the Intuit logo, and which changes color (from red to brown to green) as you tilt the label under bright light.
