    Title says it all ... basically, I bought a $79 subscription yesterday and I want to share it with a friends, he'll give me half the money so we'll both use it. Is that safe? Ahrefs will ban us? Didn't find anything about this on their site :).

    Thanks fellas, much appreciated!

    No worries, go ahead and share the subscription. That's what a lot of people do and I'm pretty confident it's not against their rules.

    Should be OK. But don't use it simultaneously to be on the safe side.

    Just talked to them live now ... they said it is forbidden, lol ... 1 person - 1 account. Anybody has ever shared their accounts with anybody else? I'm curious if you got banned or not, cause I wanna share my account with a friend of mine but now ... I'm a bit confused.

    It should be ok sharing it with 1 person, will just look like you use it at the office and home. The part where they will probably start caring a bit more is when a load of people are using it at once and cutting into the profit.

    You also have to trust your friend! He/She can change the pass and then...

    The only thing to watch our for is a api credits and bulk export credits. Those are limited to x per month.

    I'm sharing my ahrefs account with a lot of users, so far no problem at all.

    Of course it's going to be "against their rules" - why would they openly let people share accounts. I'm sure lots of people do it and get away with it, though.

    I use the same ahrefs account as three or four other people, sometimes simultaneously. In six months of use we have never had one problem.

    I hope this helps.
