How Different is ConfigCat?

ConfigCat is a fully-featured, complete Feature Flag Service. It delivers all of the features that you should expect from a premium Feature Flag Service, at a very competitive price.

The ConfigCat Dashboard lets you set your Feature Flags, the CDN then distributes the Feature Flags which your application downloads and evaluates. See how ConfigCat works

Privacy in Focus

Your Privacy

ConfigCat is GDPR compliant and we are happy to sign a Data Processing Agreement (DPA) also to meet the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

Your Customers' Privacy

ConfigCat evaluates the feature flags on the client side, so the architecture guarantees that your customer's data will never leave your system. See how it works

Unlimited Team Size

You can have unlimited team members even in the Free Plan. Scale your team as large as you like. By setting granular permission levels for each team member you have complete control over who sees what in your organization.

Unlimited MAUs

Enjoy an unlimited number of Monthly Active Users (unique users who visit your website or application) with any plan. We do not charge for MAUs, instead we measure the amount of config.json downloads. This allows for a pure-traffic approach and is a cleaner and more direct way to measure organic growth and costs.

Try ConfigCat Free of Charge

We know that making a conscious decision takes time, so you can stay on the free plan for as long as you want. The Forever-Free plan allows you to use the entirety of ConfigCat's feature-set without any time limit or pressure to upgrade whatsoever.

Data Governance

Global CDN

EU CDN

Choose if you want to keep your data within the EU datacenters to be GDPR compliant or harness the power of the global Configcat CDN with geo-location based load-balancing. See the docs on Data Governance

Industry Standard Security Features for Free

Unlike most of our competition, we believe that security should come free. All of our subscription plans including the free one comes with all security features.

  • Audit Log

    Essential from a compliance perspective, an audit log shows a complete record of actions and changes that took place within the organization.

  • Two-Factor Authentication

    All major authenticator apps (like OneLogin, Microsoft, Google, etc.) are supported.

  • Single Sign-On (SSO)

    Unlike in LaunchDarkly, it's included for free. All the major SSO providers are supported.

Public Management API

To access the ConfigCat platform programmatically. Its purpose is to provide the same functionality as the Dashboard UI only for automation tests, tools, or scripts.

Stable Uptimes

Our SLA is one of the most stable that you can get, with at least 99% uptime for the free tier and a minimum of 99.98% for any paid package. Check status monitor

Transparent Pricing Tiers

No hidden fees. Pricing is based on the number of config.json downloads that your traffic generates, so you'll never pay a penny more than you have to. We offer a forever-free plan that you can use for as long as you need to. We operate with predictable, convenient fixed-monthly rates.
