Many third-party applications require your login and your secret key to allow the share of information between your Qonto account and external tools like accounting softwares.
You can therefore offer read-only access to this software to automate the transfer of information.
You can also initiate actions on your account through API, but no worries, these sensitive actions are protected by strong authentication. 🔐
Keep in mind that your login and your secret key are not the same as your email and password.
How does it work?
You have a Smart, Premium, Essential, Business or Enterprise plan?
Good news, your login and secret key are automatically generated.
To get them, go to your Qonto web app, then go to the Settings & Team section and click on API key.
You have a Basic plan?
To get your login and secret key:
Go to your Qonto web app (you can't access your API settings from your mobile)
From the Settings & Team section, click on API Key
You will see the name of your organization followed by a number (it's your login name)
Then, click on Generate to see your secret key.
💡If you have set up Strong Customer Authentication on your account, you will receive a confirmation request on your associated phone.
☝️ Good to know: The Regenerate button will allow you to renew this key later. This will revoke access to your account for all integrations that used your previous secret key.
⚠️ You want to disable your accountant’s access? You can check this article for more information. You will also need to regenerate your login and secret key so that the accountant will no longer have access to your account information.
