Verify user credentials


#1

Hi,

In my application I need to verify that the user owns the Twitter account that he enters/specifies. Currently I do this by using OAuth and and ask the user to grant my application access to its account. However, I don’t really need the access token since my application will never access the API on the users behalve.

Is there another way to “only verify” if the user specifies the Twitter username that he owns? Something like “Signin without granting access”?

Thanks.

Ed

No, there’s no solution that just validates the identity of the end user without also involving them authorizing access to your “application.”
