Rank Math does not make use of license keys for the purposes of upgrading to Rank Math PRO. Instead, we’ve made it more secure and easier for you, and you only have to connect your Rank Math account and confirm your subscription to get Rank Math PRO activated on your website.
In addition to that, you can always check the list of websites connected with your Rank Math PRO subscription right inside your Rank Math account area. If you ever need to remove any website from your PRO subscription, you can directly do that from the Client Management dashboard in your Rank Math account area without having to log in to the website. Thus, Rank Math offers you more control over your Rank Math PRO license.
