Frequently asked questions
Can I invite my own email address?
No. Lightkey’s invite system will extend your license only if you invite friends that don’t have Lightkey installed on their machine.
I activated my invite and got 3 months. Can I also send my own invites and earn an additional 1-year?
Yes! Activating your received invite earns you 3 months of Lightkey for free. By sending out invites and getting 4 of them activated, you can earn an additional 1 year - getting you a total of 15 months of Lightkey Pro for free!
Can I get this benefit once my 30-day trial has expired?
Yes! But we highly recommend that you send invites sooner. Otherwise, by the time your invites will be activated by your friends, Lightkey will stop working on your machine.
I bought a 1-year license. Can I get this benefit and extend my license to 2 years?
Absolutely! On top of your purchased license, you can get an additional 1 year of Lightkey Pro for free by inviting your friends and getting 4 of your invites activated by them.
One of my invited friends already has Lightkey installed. Can I send more invitations?
Sure, no worries! You can send up to 8 invites. You only need 4 invites to be activated by your friends in order to get this benefit.
Lightkey Pro’s latest edition features a new Invitation Program that extends your license expiration by up to 1 year for free. Simply send invitations to your friends and colleagues and for each valid and activated invitation you and your friend will get an additional 90 days. The first 4 activated invites will earn you 1 year of Lightkey Pro for free. This post explains how to invite your friends and colleagues, track the status of your invites and earn your license credits.
