Can I use an Akismet API key with another service?
An Akismet API key can only be used with the Akismet anti-spam service. An API (Application Program Interface) key can only be used with the service that it was designed to activate or continue service with.
If you purchased a theme or another plugin that requires an API key, you’ll need to obtain that from that vendor.
If you have general questions about Akismet, please contact us.
