When using the free tier, you might encounter a message like this if the abuse system has detected some
- Unusual activity detected. Free Tier usage disabled. If you are using proxy/VPN you might need to purchase a paid plan to not trigger our abuse detectors. Free Tier only works if users do not abuse it, for example by creating multiple free accounts. If we notice that many people try to abuse it, we will need to reconsider Free Tier altogether. Please play fair. Please purchase any Paid Subscription to continue.
This is regrettably a limitation we've needed to impose on the free tier to avoid people creating multiple accounts. It doesn't necessarily mean that you have multiple accounts. It could also mean that you are using a VPN and have shared the same IP as someone else who has an account.
For example, it could mean that someone in your household, school, or office has also created a free account, or that you might be using a mobile network where each device is assigned a temporary IP address from a pool of available addresses which can cause these types of issues. But regardless, something has happened that has alerted the systems and flagged it as unusual.
The only way to circumvent this is to use a unique IP or buy a subscription, and the error will go away. The first month on the starter tier is only $1, providing you with additional features compared to the free tier. This allows you to thoroughly evaluate the system and its capabilities. We are sorry about the inconvenience but there is nothing we can do once the account has been flagged.
