I want to use my API key on another site. How do I do that?

From Wordfence Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search
  • For best results, downgrade the old site to a free key before starting this process (on your website, on the Wordfence options page)
  • Sign in to with the account you created when you ordered the key(s)
  • Click the button that says "MANAGE API KEYS"


  • Your keys will be listed on the page you are taken to.
  • Look for the key you want to use somewhere else and check the box beside it.
  • You will find a link that says "RESET SELECTED KEYS". Click there


  • Paste your new key in the top of the Options page

That's it.

NOTE: Keys can only be used on one domain at a time. Using them in two installations will mean one, possibly both, will not work
