A USB dongle is a device used on a computer, allowing it to gain access to a specific program. The dongle has coding that unlocks the program on the computer when the launch request is received. It is possible to connect the USB dongle to three different (nearby) computers, although all three programs are unable to run the software at once, as the dongle is only capable of sending out the signal for one computer at a time.
