Activate Pro Version

After you click activate, you will be asked to enter your license key.

The plugin will now ask you for permissions which you can of course skip. We would appreciate if you would allow the tracking since it helps us get a better idea of which WordPress and PHP versions we need to support.

Upgrading from the old system – Gumroad

If you already had an old version of Security Ninja installed, the plugin will try to detect the license from the old system and automatically create a new license for you, bypassing this screen.

If you do see the screen and you need to get a license, here is what you do:

1. Use the button in the bottom “Activate Free Version.”

This will create a license for you, and register your email in the system.

2. Contact us with a license upgrade request, and I can manually update or create a new license for you to use. Click here:

Important: You have to “Activate Free Version” to create a user in the licensing system before we can create a custom license manually.


Activate License

If you already installed a Free version you can upgrade the License by going to Security Ninja -> Account and click the Activate License button.

This will open a popup where you can enter the Pro license key.
