Connected App

Where do I authorize a third party app to use my FlightAware account?

I assume you are referring to the list of currently authorized third-party apps for your account at: User Account Management - FlightAware ? Apps must utilize our private OAuth interface to initiate the authorization prompt with a user to become listed there.

The primary reason you would want to use the OAuth functionality is if you are developing an app that needs to be able to access blocked aircraft that are only visible under the end-user’s account but not your application’s service account. If you feel your application could benefit from this functionality, we can discuss this further in private. Official availability of OAuth functionality is expected to be publicly available in the final version of FlightXML3.

Thank you, Bovineone.
