We’re very happy to announce that now we support OAuth, a popular open protocol for API authentication. OAuth provides a much simpler experience for users when connecting to third-party apps.

The biggest benefit of using OAuth is that it provides added security to users, and developers don’t have to maintain/store user credentials. While using third-party apps, OAuth allows access without exposing user credentials. It gives the user control over who is accessing their data, and when. Just a few simple clicks and your account is securely connected to another service.

OAuth is nowhere near simple, but once you understand the dance of tokens and secrets it’s fairly easy to work with. You can find more information about OAuth at IDrive OAuth documentation. If you experience any problem or have questions,  send them to support@idrive.com.

P.S Build your own cloud-based applications with a set of simple Command line utility APIs, REST APIs and Library.
