Why can I generate a new license key?

We have changed the way you can manage your license key. Previously you had one and only one license key for any single MaxMind account. You can now create additional license keys, and use them to authorize access to MaxMind products and services you use. You can also remove unneeded license keys. One license key must be active on your account at all times.

Being able to create and deactivate license keys provides enhanced security for your account by giving you more control over product and service authorization. You can use this feature to manage authorization access for multiple user groups or to replace license keys you suspect to be compromised.
