If you want to register or get service for your Surface Type Cover or Surface Signature Keyboard, you'll need to know its serial number. Here's some info to help you locate it.

Note: Not sure which Type Cover model you have? You can find out when you register it with your Microsoft account. For more info on registering it, see How to register your Surface.

Find the serial number on your Surface Type Cover or Surface Pro Signature Keyboard

Serial number on Cover

You can find the serial number for your Type Cover near the center or to one side of its spine (the area that attaches to your Surface). The serial number is a string of numbers that looks something like this:

XXXXXXXXXXXX

If you still have the original packaging, you can find the serial number on the barcode label.

If you bought a Surface that was bundled with a Type Cover or Signature Keyboard, the serial number will be on the barcode label on the box along with the serial number for your Surface.
