# Using TGM Plugin Activation
The best way to install Redux is to use the TGM Plugin Activation class. This class allows you to encourage the user to install Redux as a plugin rather than embedding it in your theme or plugin. Why would you want to do that?
- The WordPress plugin is kept up to date and addresses any new vulnerabilities.
- You don't have to worry about updating it.
- We're rabid about support.
- It's a lot less pain during your code reviews.
Depending on the market (ThemeForest, WordPress.org), the pain of embedding can be quite intense. As such, this is the recommended approach by Redux.
