French term or phrase: cle de deblocage / procede de deblocage
Computer-related. Refering to encrypted software that can then be "unlocked" upon purchase. I saw "restore key" in Termium but that doesn't seem to be the best choice. Any other ideas?

English translation:decryption key
Explanation:
I'm assuming that if you purchase something that has to by deciphered, you will at some point want to encrypt it again. so if you have an encryption and decryption key pair, decryption key works here.

desbloqueo


Explanation:
¿Qué te parecería algún término relacionado con desbloquear?
El diccionario Vox dice lo siguiente en su segunda acepción: suprimir los obstáculos que impiden el desarrollo de una acción, evolución, progreso, etc. Entonces, podrías poner algo así como "clave de desbloqueo" "procedimiento de desbloqueo del programa"
Ojalá te sirva y suerte
