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



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.


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.
