This guide will discuss how to activate an ACF Extended Pro license and unlock plugin updates. Without a valid activation for your website, ACF Extended Pro will not be able to receive plugin updates, however, all other plugin features will continue to work correctly – good for development or staging websites.

Finding your License

Each ACF Extended Pro order generates a unique license key that is associated with your ACF Extended account (created during checkout). You will find your license key by logging in to your Account Dashboard and viewing your available licenses.

Activate your License

To activate your license, log in to your WordPress admin and navigate to the “ACF > Updates” admin page. If this page is not available, please check that you have activated ACF Pro plugin or contact support for help.

On the ride side, in the “ACF Extended” section, paste your license key into the input field and click the Activate button. Once the page reloads, you will be met with a success notification and your website will now receive ACF Extended Pro plugin updates!

In the case of an error, please contact support and provide the error message displayed (along with your info).


When copying and pasting your license key, please make sure to copy all characters. License keys do not contain spaces, but contain both lowercase and uppercase letters, numbers and special characters.
