How do you store/use secret API key data?

Hello everyone,

When you are interacting with 3rd party services and making API calls that use both the public AND private API keys, how do you handle the storage/obfuscation of these variables away from the client-accessible javascript files?

By not using Webflow to access them without a middleware tier.

@trynix - to elaborate on what @webdev said, generally you’ll have a third party backend hosted on something like AWS that will act as the middleman between two services and typically stores api keys and other sensitive data in environment variables.
