A virtual dongle refers to a software program intended to virtualize the security dongle key. The virtual version of a dongle permits access to programs that use dongles, eliminating the need for a physical hardware key for the required program.
Dongles are usually included in top-tier specialized programs like high-quality audio and video software, CAD (computer-aided design) software. To run such programs, you have to plug in a physical security key to your PC. Otherwise, the software will be inaccessible.
When it comes to how to make a virtual USB dongle, dedicated software is required. And here is one of the best solutions out there - the software called Donglify.
Virtual USB dongles can be accessed on other remote PCs (client computers) as long as they are logged into the same Donglify account as the computer with a physically attached security key (server computer). In addition, you also need to install Donglify on the PC that your USB key is physically connected to and the machine from which you want to access it remotely.
