IDM has been registered with a fake serial number error

IDM is the most widely used downloading client in the world. The trial version of IDM is available for free of cost on its official site. But it works only for 15 days. After that, it either asks you to buy the full version or enter a purchased serial key. Therefore, people started using the crack or patch version of IDM to escape it. But the joy of those people remained short-lived when IDM introduced a new update to catch those people. After then, whenever a person opens IDM, it pops up with a message “IDM has been registered with a fake serial number” and if you try to cancel this message, the working of IDM stops automatically. So, the user has to enter the correct serial number to use it further and it is only possible if you buy it.
