How To Obtain Your Own API Key

To obtain an API key for ChatGPT, please follow the steps below.

Step 1

Sign Up

Visit and select the “Sign up” option to create an OpenAI account. You can register using your email address and password, or utilize your Google or Microsoft account for sign-up.

Step 2

Once your account is successfully created, log in to it.

Step 3

Apply for API access by navigating to the API keys page: and clicking on the “Create new secret key” button. Safely store the secret key as it will not be accessible through your OpenAI account again. If you misplace your key, generating a new one is necessary.

Step 4

Copy your ChatGPT API key in order to begin utilizing ChatGPT’s language processing capabilities within the plugin. Remember to keep your API key confidential and refrain from sharing it with others.


If you wish to revoke your API key, click the “Revoke key” button. This action will immediately deactivate the key, causing any API requests made with it to be declined. Please note that once revoked, the key cannot be viewed or modified. Additionally, if you belong to multiple organizations, you can set a default organization for making API requests.
