Extended Permissions

AWeber's API has two tiers of application permissions. The first offers access to all resources except for subscriber data. The second has access to all data without restriction.

The two-tiered setup is in place to keep your users' data safe and reassure them that your application is operating in a way they can trust. By default applications use the first, subscriber-less, tier but you can opt your app into the second by following the steps below:

  1. Login into your AWeber Labs account and go to your application's edit pane.
  2. Click the "Settings" button, click the "Request Subscriber Data" checkbox and then the "Confirm" button.

When you enable this feature, your users will see a modified verification page that highlights this permissions level.

Once a user verifies that your application can have access to their account, it will have full access of the data, subscribers and all.
