How to distribute API key of an open source app to users?

#1

Is it safe to just upload my app’s consumer API key on my github repository? If not, how do I give users the key so that they can use the app? Or should I ask the users to obtain their own API keys?

@RoshanFMaind - Please never share your consumer keys publicly. You don’t want those falling into the wrong hands :wink: For open source apps, all developers should have their own consumer key.


#3

how do I get my consumer keys?

Hi @sadhoo_r.

To access your consumer keys, head to this page. On here you’ll see your app/s. Click Details on the App you want to view the consumer keys for, and then on the Keys and tokens tab. Here you will find your keys.
