Frequently Asked Questions

How does linking a Cloudflare Account work?

Cloudflare is a separate service from Tech Lockdown. By providing us with an API Token, Tech Lockdown is able to manage your Cloudflare account to provide more powerful functionality and a simpler user experience.

API Key / API Token: A special key, similar to a password, that grants limited access to an account. In our case, we use it to manage the Zero Trust feature in your Cloudflare account.

How does Tech Lockdown safeguard my API Key?

We initially use your Global API key so that we can generate a limited API token. Here is how we protect the key:

  1. We do not save your Global API key and have no way to access it after you close your browser.
  2. The API token we generate only grants us access to a few features within Cloudflare.
  3. We store an encrypted version of this API token in our database.
