GoFax API access tokens

API access tokens

Our system features an application programming interface that allows programmers to code applications to communicate directly with our online fax / SMS system. Security is managed by access tokens, which allow encrypted connections between our system and configured applications.

Tokens can only be deleted by a system administrator; to remove a token, please send an email from the “Authorised Account Holder” email address to our support contact email address.
