Connect & Activate your license key

After installing Elementor Pro, you need to activate your license. To activate your license key, and get automatic updates, go to Elementor > License. Click Connect & Activate

You’ll be redirected to log in to your account. Click Connect. After you log in, your license will be activated automatically. 

When building a website using a local machine or a staging domain/subdomain, Elementor Pro doesn’t register as an install, meaning you can install Elementor Pro on your local machine or staging site and on your online production website at the same time. you can now setup a subdomain that has one of the following names below. For example, if your site is, then using will not be considered a separate license use, so you’ll be able to use the same license on both.

We’ve expanded the list of top-level domains and subdomains from the original short list of .dev, .test, and .local to a much longer list, so you can activate the same license – whether it’s personal, pro or expert – on both your staging AND production sites. The list now includes:

  • *.dev
  • *.test
  • *.local
  • *.staging
  • *.example
  • *.invalid
  • dev.*
  • *.staging.*
  • *.test.*
  • *.stage.*
  • *.stagingN.* (SiteGround; N is an unsigned int)
  • *
  • dev-*
  • test-*
  • staging-*
  • *
  • *
  • *

If the license key was installed correctly, the message on the top of your dashboard should disappear.

If you get an “Invalid redirect URI. Try to reconnect” error, or any similar “Error Occurred” message, when attempting to activate Pro, please go to Settings > General and check the URLs that are listed there as your WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL). Both URLs should be exactly the same. If they are different, you can get this error. 

If you are still having issues with activating your license key, check to see you haven’t copied any spaces or other characters.

For any other issues contact our support by using the form on the support page.

Note: Elementor Pro is an extension of Elementor. It means that Elementor Pro will not work if you do not install the free version of Elementor.

As of version 2.9, Elementor Pro widgets are not draggable unless your Elementor license has been activated. Please see this document for more information.
