Computer Accessing USMLE World from 2 different IP addresses!

Hi one of my friends used to access his USMLE World from home but some days ago he accessed it from a different IP address and his subscription was canceled becoz they thought that multiple users were accessing it. Is this true?
I am currently in my college and I want to subscribe to uworld for 6 months but will my subscription get canceled if I use it from my home?

Can I use my subscription from multiple location(s)/computer(s)?

You are allowed to access your account and use your subscription(s) 24/7, regardless of your location as long as the computer/network being utilized meets the system requirements as outlined here. However, there are certain regulations that apply. The registered subscriber is the only individual who is allowed to access their account and subscription(s), and access can only occur on ONE computer at any given time (e.g. You can use your subscription from 9AM - 5PM from your work location and resume 6PM - 11PM at home, but there cannot be any overlap). All log-ins are diligently monitored and if a single account has been used from multiple computers at the same time, it will be immediately terminated without any explanation or refund.

I am using uworld from different locations. But its a laptop, so the MAC (physical) address of my computer is the same. I think you can use only one machine from different location but you can't use different machines.

Default Different computers are fine

I have logged onto UWorld from at least five machines, both at home and at school, and never had any trouble. It's just been me logging on, so only one computer is ever logged on at a time. I think that as long as you are not trying to share your account with other people and you make sure to close UWorld when you are done, you shouldn't have any problem!
