# Keitaro license
# Get license key
The software Keitaro provides a free license key for a 14—days period immediately upon registering the user's personal account on the website. This license key grants full functionality of the Expert edition of the software without any limitations. After the 14-day period expires, users must extend the license key validity period for 1, 6, or 12 months to continue using the software.
# License key activation and usage
The license key is activated immediately after registration. To use the license and the tracker, follow these steps:
Install Keitaro software.
Enter the license key into the activation form located at
From this moment, the license key is bound to the tracker and is exclusively used for one tracker at a time. You can reassign the license key to another tracker by rebinding it.
# Extending a license key period
Log in to keitaro.io;
- Press Renew:
- Choose the period and go to the payment page
# Changing the license edition. Upgrade or downgrade the edition
Changing the edition is free and is available in your personal cabinet at keitaro.io, section Licenses, button Change edition. It works according to the following logic and rules:
If you have a valid license for any edition (Starter, Advanced, Expert, Team, Enterprise) you can change the type of edition to the preferable one;
During the validity period, change the edition type only for upgrading your edition for using the functions available in a more expensive version.
Example: upgrade from Advanced to Expert to get access to Admin API. After you change the type to the more expensive one, the validity time will be reduced. This is an automatic recalculation instead of an additional payment
- If you downgrade a license, the validity period does not extend, and the money will not be refunded. To downgrade a license type, wait until the current license will be expired. Then, make a license renewal by the needed license type.
