2. Display Public Data

Fetch public data stored in 3Box

3Box offers static read-only methods that allow developers to asynchronously get public user data from the 3Box system, including public profiles, spaces, and threads, without needing to first authenticate a user. The static get requests found in this section are only available on public data.

Use Cases

  • Display public user profiles throughout your app

  • Display user content stored publicly in spaces

  • Display message threads in your app

Want to do more with 3Box? You will need to authenticate a user if you want to perform interactive functionality on 3Box, such as decrypting private data, updating data, removing data, or posting in threads.

Public, read only data can also be obtained from our REST API
