I haven't cracked a software license in years now. I remember when I first started using the internet I would search for cracks for almost every software I used.
But technologies advanced and it was getting very hard to find cracks and free licenses so I stopped doing it since for almost any software out there you can basically find a free source version.
Recently my Screaming Frog license expired and I was experiencing with different kind of free source spiders, but nothing even compares with Screaming Frog and I'm pretty sure its the best website crawler out there giving your the option to extract a huge range of data and create SEO reports. I find it indispensable for on-page fixes and audits.
So, I was willing to renew my license until I've found a couple of free ones online, on a website that claimed they're giving them away for free. Tried one my wife's PC (not connected to the internet) and it works. It basically expires next year in August.
Should I trust that website and can anything bad happen if I'm using that username and license key?
Would I be part of something illegal? Remember I'm not using any additional cracking software, I just need to copy-paste the code.
