Only genuine JetBrains software gives you full access to the latest features and updates so you can avoid performance problems, get the latest fixes, and be as productive as possible. Download it from the JetBrains website! Use software that’s reliable, secure, and supported by JetBrains to ensure you get the quality you expect.
Using safe, genuine software doesn't have to be expensive. For example, you can get a low-cost monthly subscription to work on a small individual project without committing to an annual deal.
Using JetBrains software packaged with a “solution”, “crack”, or similar modification of a genuine version of the JetBrains tools poses several risks:
Side effects on the tool’s effectiveness: it may consume more memory, slow down the execution, and cause unexpected crashes, etc.
Unwanted additional workload introduced by a third-party modification, such as participating in botnets, cryptocurrency mining, and welcoming viruses to your system.
If you use a counterfeit version or a crack at work, it may interfere with your employer’s copyright policy and lead to employment termination or/and criminal liability.
PhpStorm, PyCharm, IntelliJ IDEA, GoLand, Rider, and other JetBrains tools have affordable individual subscription options. An individual subscription is cheaper than subscriptions for companies because it is non-transferable. If you work in a company and buy an individual subscription, it remains with you if you were to ever leave the company.
Try a 30-day free trial. After 30 days you could upgrade to a monthly subscription. For example, a month of WebStorm costs as little as a few U.S. dollars, and if it saves you a few minutes, it pays for itself.
