User Accounts and Channels
ThingSpeak API Keys
API keys control access to private data. ThingSpeak™ uses individual channel-level API Keys to control information for each channel and user-level API keys for account level control.
User API Key
The User API Key enables channel-level operations using the API. The User API Key is necessary to create and delete channels and to view information for private channels.
To get your User API Key:
