The Plugin/Theme I Download Is Requesting License Key?

Yes some items may ask for a license key, registration code, etc.

In most items you can enter anything you want, or just ignore it. License key is required for automatic updates of the item only. The item will still work even if you do nothing.

But you can't do auto updates when there's a new update notice. You have to download the latest version from GPL WP and install it manually again. Please refer to this article on how to update a theme or plugin.

Or, f you want to hide that notice, you can use this plugin:

    Hi, I tried to use Thrive Themes but it's asking for email address and license key. I tried to input anything as you suggested but it didn't work. I can't change the settings in the theme.

    Hi

    Just uploaded thrive quizzes plugin to my website and requests a license key to activate it and I tried to put random numbers as you suggest here but does not work for me.

    Is there another way to get this plugin to work?

    I just purchased this deal because of the 2 products: Thrive Quizzes and Yoast SEO premium  BUT they all seem to require a license for activation. I can seem to get them to work without activation with some type of license key.

    Any suggestions here?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    To use the Yoast Premium plugin, I must have a license code entered into my account with Yoast.  Otherwise the premium plug in does not work.  Do you have a code for me to enter?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    The same problem exists for Monster Insights Premium Google Analytics plugin. It requires a license key to function.

    Do you have the key so the plugin will work? 

    Thanks
