Hi,

... Groundspeak is planning a "feature", that you have to renew your access token every 60 days!?!?

Hi,

I received warning from them as well. Not sure if it will happen really every 60 days or it is just one time action now. Hard to say ...


Anyway, is there any problem with this? This should only means, that once per 60 days, you will have to again insert your name and password to login screen, nothing more.

Hi menion,


no, it is not really a big problem.


My question is:

Do I have to renew the groundspeak access token every 60 days only in Locus once and the Locus addons "share" this access token or do I have to renew the access token in Locus and any addon of Locus which uses the groundspeak api?

Every app needs to have own private token, not shared! That is why exists separate login in Locus, in Geocaching4Locus and maybe also in other apps if they use Groundspeak API, token cannot be shared!


So answer: yes, you will have to login on both places again.

This problem should be now correctly solved. Locus notify about invalid token once it happen and request you to re-login again.
