Subject: Reminder: Meetup’s API Access Methods are Changing Soon


 

You’re receiving this email because you may have recently used Meetup’s API. 

This is a reminder that Meetup is changing its API access and that you have until August 15, 2019 to update your integration. 

Here are the important details you need to know:

• API Keys will be replaced by OAuth: We will be removing API keys on August 15 and requiring you to authenticate with OAuth.
• Apply for an OAuth consumer at no cost (before August 15): After August 15, only members with an active Meetup Pro subscription will be able to create new OAuth consumers. 
• We’re removing API version 2: You will need to switch to API version 3 before August 15. API version 2 will no longer be available, even if you have already applied for an OAuth consumer. 
• These changes do not impact the use of the Meetup website or our Android and iOS app.

This update to API access methods will provide a better and more secure experience for all Meetup members. You can find information on our API updates and answers to common questions on our Help Center.

Best,
Meetup
