Frequently asked questions

Have a different question and can't find the answer you're looking for? Reach out to our support team by posting on our forum, and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

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 ~3x 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?

With "Local Mode", your code is never stored anywhere other than your machine and will never be trained on. Otherwise, we cache code snippets when you invoke the AI to improve Cursor.

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?

Feel free to join and post on our forum. If you'd rather keep your question private, you can email us directly at hi@cursor.so.
