How do I link my account with third-party products or RSS feed readers that integrate with 37signals products?

You’ll need to use your authentication token for feed readers and third-party products. (Tokens are codes you can type into certain products to allow the products to access your data. Be careful with your tokens — anyone who has your tokens can access your data.)

You can find the token on your My Info page of the product you want to access. Scroll to the bottom and click on the link that says “Show your tokens.” One token will give you access to that product’s API, the other can be used with feed readers.
