I’d imagine this wasn’t officially announced as its sort of an account security change as this makes cookie logging near impossible which is awesome, but… they just kinda threw web devs, ranking bots, among other devs uner the bus… Ah roblox…
tldr; EPIC DUB for account security against cookie logging, sucks for web devs.
Don’t worry, I won’t get hacked. Anyways that account is an alt / bot account so it doesn’t matter. It has extra security just in case it does get hacked. So don’t worry about the Cookie being exposed.
Sadly most people, such as myself, can’t create feature requests because they’re not regulars which as far as I know is not possible to get anymore hence feature requests like this tend to lose traction.
It is trivial to add an option to opt-out of authentication changes like this or the other recent authentication flow change. I can’t post in Feature Requests, but even if I could adding an Open Cloud API could take months, and even if added wouldn’t cover complex use cases like automated testing that would take even longer to develop. Feature velocity is slow on Roblox.
This change—even as an A/B test—is great, but there was a responsible way to make it, and that didn’t happen. Roblox chose not to prioritize work on better developer authentication for years, please don’t suggest that people complaining are being unreasonable.
Not suggesting anything of the sort. It’s understandable people try to find solutions where none exist.
A lot of developers rely on these APIs to run their groups. If Roblox doesn’t want us to perform actions this way, they should provide a way for us to securely authenticate [like OAuth2] and perform actions.
