Why isn't Cursor completely free?
Large-language models cost quite a bit of money to run. To grow Cursor sustainably without compromising our service quality, we need to cover our costs.
What is Cursor?
Cursor is an AI-powered code editor that helps you move faster. You can use Cursor to edit code in natural language, fix runtime errors, and locate hard-to-find code.
What are fast and slow uses?
Fast uses of GPT-4 are given first priority by our backend and are served faster than OpenAI's public API. On pro, once you hit your fast use limit, you can still use GPT-4, but your requests may be queued behind others at times of high load.
What's the difference between GPT-4 and GPT-3.5
GPT-4 is much better at coding. GPT-4 will output significantly more correct explanations, answers, and code than GPT-3.5.
What code do you store?
Do I need to put in my API key?
Nope! If you upgrade to pro, there's no need to use your API key in Cursor. Instead, we'll cover the costs of the OpenAI calls for you.
How do the plan limits work?
If you go over your limit, we'll nicely ask you to upgrade. You can use up to 50 uses of GPT-4 for free.
Can I cancel my subscription plan?
Of course! Cancel at any time by clicking the manage plan button in settings.
Where can I ask more questions?
Who owns the code generated in Cursor?
You! Regardless of whether you use the free, pro or business version of Cursor, all generated code is yours and free to be used however you like, including commercially.
