API key - where being used?

I have a WPMU account and an API key listed. But I manage many sites and don't know which site this API key is being used on. Can you tell me?

    Hello Karyn

    The API key is used when you connect your website with hub using Dev Dashboard plugin, it works in the background to check the authentication as a valid user.

    The key is also used if you use composer to install your plugins, as you will need API key for authentication.

    So, the API key is important. if anyone gets your API key, he doesn't need your admin login but he can download all of your plugins. If you think your API key is compromised, it is highly recommended to reset your api key ASAP.

    Have a nice day!

    Hello Karyn

    Your WPMU DEV Account and API key are used for more than just the WPMU DEV Dashboard. Much, MUCH more!

    Your account gives you access to our 24/7 expert support via forums and Live Chat. You get full, unlimited access to all of our products, with all Pro features enabled. You get access to the Academy. And you get access to Hub services, which includes 10GB of off-site backup space through Snapshot Managed Backups, white-labelled reports and Automate. There's really quite a lot we offer here and we're adding more in the near future. :wink:

    However, if what we offer is not a good match for your business model, we understand. We hate to see you go, but here's how you can close your account if you wish.

    You can either contact one of our Account Specialists via Live Support (chat) at https://premium.wpmudev.org/live-support/ or you can contact them via email by visiting https://premium.wpmudev.org/contact/#i-have-a-billing-question and completing the form.

    Let us know if you have any further questions. We'll be happy to help! :slight_smile:

    Best regards,
