3. Authentication

How to authenticate a profile and spaces.

Authentication is required to perform any of the interactive functionalities offered by 3Box, including: decrypting private data, updating data, removing data, and posting messages.

  • authenticate a 3Box if you're trying to interact with the user's profile

  • authenticate a space if you're trying to interact with a space or message threads

Authentication requires that users sign one or more message(s) using a web3-enabled browser or wallet such as MetaMask, Portis, or Fortmatic.
