Is it safe to provide CryptFolio a CEX.io API key?

  • You need to make sure that the API key only has the Account balance permission. This should mean that the API key can only be used to retrieve account status, and it should not be possible to perform trades or withdraw funds using that key.
  • Your CEX.io keys and secrets will never be displayed on the CryptFolio site, even if you have logged in.
  • Through the CEX.io interface you can revoke an API key's access at any time by clicking Delete.
