Adobe Acrobat Licenses (Staff & Faculty)

Activate your Acrobat license

  • Open Adobe Acrobat on your computer. Click on Sign in under the Help menu item, or on the top right corner
  • Click on Sign in Now
  • In the username text box, enter YourPennkey@upenn.edu (not @law.upenn.edu). Leave the password box empty and click on Sign In.
  • This will take you to a PennKey login page. Enter your PennKey credentials and click Log in.
    You will get a two-step verification screen the first time you do this, be sure to check off Trust this Browser so you don’t get asked for two-step every session.
  •  If this screen shows up, please click Continue on the license information window and you will then be signed in on Adobe Acrobat. Otherwise, your system will just sign you in automatically once the Pennkey login is done.
