Meraki Go - Subscription Keys


In order to provide DNS based security features, an associated subscription key must be added via the Meraki Go Portal.. This document outlines useful information about Meraki Go Subscription Keys.

Managing Subscription Keys

At this time, Meraki Go subscription keys can only be managed via the Meraki Go Portal and not the Meraki Go App. The portal will provide you an overview of your current subscriptions, as well as allow you to apply additional subscriptions.

Receiving your Subscription Key

Once your Meraki Go order has been purchased and processed, your Meraki Go subscription key will be emailed to you.

As of October 7th, 2019 Subscription keys are no longer needed to create a Meraki Go account, or continue using existing Meraki Go hardware.

Subscription Start Date

Each device's Meraki Go subscription key will start on application date, not purchase date. If there is a delay between your purchase date, and when you receive / apply your subscription, you will not lose out on any of that time.

Note: If you do not apply a subscription within 90 days of purchase, the subscription will automatically start.

Grace Period

If the subscription key for one of your Meraki Go devices is not renewed by it's experiation, the subscription for the device will enter a 30 day grace period. The device will continue functioning for those 30 days, but if a new subscription is not applied within this grace period, the device will be shut down until a new subscription for it has been applied.
