Important notice (06/06/2022)

Today we are announcing an upcoming policy change concerning refresh tokens. So far,
refresh tokens remained valid indefinitely, although they could only be used once to obtain a new
access token / refresh token pair. Over time, this has led to an accumulation of a large number of
unused refresh tokens, which increased the potential attack surface against Silverfin and our
customers’ data.

In keeping with best security practices, we will limit refresh tokens’ lifetime to 60 days, regardless
of whether they’ve been used or not. As before, refresh tokens will be revoked after they are used once
to obtain a new access token / refresh token pair. If all of your application’s refresh tokens expire,
you will need to go through the OAuth flow anew to obtain a new pair of valid tokens.

This change will go into effect on August 9, 2022. Based on an overview of our API usage patterns, we
don’t expect any of our API partners to be affected by this change as they obtain new tokens much more
frequently than every 60 days. Nevertheless, if you have any questions or concerns about this, please
contact us at api@getsilverfin.com.
