Storing passwords

DO NOT STORE THE USER'S PASSWORD! The way this call works is you call it once with the user's email and password and then keep the token around for later. You do NOT (I repeat NOT) call this before everything you do or on each program startup. We watch for this and will shut down your application with little notice if we catch you. In fact, the Objective-C code does this for you so you can't get it wrong.

scary warning! is this something to mind when using the sharpbox ? If so , then how exactly does one store the token ?

 

Thanks

Hi,
yes we support this way. You will use the open method for generating an access token and after that you can store the access token on disk, in registry, what ever and use this token for further login (two versions of Open method are available)
