GitKraken Status  


GitKraken automatically put me in a trial. Is there a way to use the app without the trial?

All new GitKraken accounts will automatically get a GitKraken trial of all paid client features.

If you plan to use the free version, the trial will automatically end after 7 days and the app will change to the free version.

If you have questions about your trial, please contact our sales team.

What happens to my GitKraken Desktop when my license expires?

Your GitKraken Desktop will revert to the free version when the paid license expires. You will not lose any data, but the client will not open any private repos and you will only retain access to 1 profile.
