What is an API key?

An API key is a unique identifier used to authenticate and control access to a particular API. Generated from numbers and letters, the key acts as a password, allowing the user or application to access specific API functionalities. When using Public API by Smartproxy, you can update and set traffic limits for your proxy users, whitelist IPs, manage sub-users, and access other handy features without the need to log in to your dashboard.
