How to Hack Crack IDM download Manager Step by Step tutorial

Meaning at a glance – Hack Crack IDM

By Hacking i would like to mean getting alternate(undiscovered) ways to perform something leaving traditional methods in best possible manner. However my definition may be different in your terms. So, today i will be sharing a new tweak in market for IDM -Internet Download Manager, which will help us to bypass IDM Registration and Use in Full Version mode throughout.

Need for Tweaking/Hacking

The question here arises why are we going for this approach . The answer lies in your search query i.e after installing IDM from any source it will ask for Registering Serial Number which if you have bought it via genuine website would have got. So, here we need our trick to bypass it.

Bypassing and Cracking IDM for First Time

  • First of all i would like you to download IDM from this Link . File is Password Protected (use as password) .
  • After Downloading and Installing IDM window will open.
  • Here this stage we face problem because we register it with fake key and it shows “Your IDM is registered successfully”.But once it gets updated to latest version or connected to Internet, it’ll recognize that the key which you used is fake and through error message on opening again.
  • Fake Serial number

  • Don’t worry for this, here comes our trick.
  • If you have already installed IDM , please uninstall it. We have follow some procedure before installation.
  • Now we’ll do some registry tweaking .Open System Host File running below command in Command Prompt.


    -> open it with notepad.
    or you can directly browse to this location :

    C Drive -> Windows -> system32 -> drivers -> etc -> hosts

  • In Hosts file you will find locahost ip address mentioned.
    hosts file
    Just below that paste the code provided below:

    Hosts file updated

    Note:In Windows 7 and Windows 7, you won’t be able to directly save this hosts file.It’ll ask you to save to another location as shown in snapshot below.

    Do not have permissions.
    So we need to add permissions by this method:
    1. Go to the file location and right click hosts file and select properties.
    hosts file permissions
    2. In hosts properties go to Security and click on Edit. Now select Users permission group and give it Modify permission(if not checked) as shown in snapshot below.Modify
    3. Click Apply and press OK for confirmation message which comes after that.Now we are ready , we can save changes made in hosts file now. If you have lost those changes do it again from above steps.

    Now let’s consider you have modified hosts file and saved it successfully.

  • Now Install IDM and on successful installation click on Registration Tab.

    Register Internet Download Manager

    Register Internet Download Manager

  • IDM registratiom

  • A dialog box will open asking for your details. Fill in all the details and one of below key in place of Serial Key.


  • IDM will be registered successfully. You can check your registration details by checking Help-> About IDM in your IDM instance.
  • registered successfully

  • It has been converted to full version.

Logic Behind hack trick

You must be wondering that why we did all those things, added custom code to hosts file and all. The reason is those lines in custom code are actually IP Addresses of Servers through which IDM communicate in order to perform any administrative task like checking for Upgrade, Registration etc. So by adding those server addresses we are actually blocking IDM to access those servers,After this IDM can’t update itself nor it can check validity of your client version.

Point to Note: This trick for Hack Crack IDM has been tested in all Operating Systems and worked perfectly fine. However in Windows 7 and 8 you need modify Permissions to update Hosts file.

Update We noticed that this trick is not working for many Users. So we have launched a new trick for Latest versions of IDM. You can find it here : Trick for Latest Version of IDM

I wish this will help in solving your problem.
