How to Verify Your WPForms License

Would you like to verify your WPForms license? Verifying your license key will provide access to automatic updates and support, completing the installation process.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to verify your WPForms license from within your WordPress site.

Verifying Your WPForms License

Before we get started, be sure to install the WPForms plugin on your site.

Note: If you’ve just upgraded from WPForms Lite, you’ll first need to install our separate, paid plugin. Please see our tutorial on how to upgrade from WPForms Lite for the full details.

Once you have installed and activated the plugin, you will need to enter your license key in the WPForms Settings.

You can do this by going to WPForms » Settings inside your WordPress Dashboard.
