Press install and shortly after activate the plugin, this will bring you back to your original plugin screen. At this point if your new to the plugin you will need to create an acount. The free version is great with lots of features. Further more signing up for free doesnt involve having to leave any payment details.

Once you entered your details then it will ask you to create a Property. This will require a property name, your site URL and also a widget name. This will be to identify what tawk.to module you want to use in case you have multiple sites with different property’s.
