There are two kinds of API keys that you can create: “read-keys” and “read-write-keys.” As Beneath launches, both types of keys will be subject to rate limits. Please contact us if you hit your limit and would like more capacity.


Read-keys (as you might expect!) allow you to read from any of Beneath’s public data sources.


In addition to reading data from Beneath, these keys enable you to write data to Beneath. Writing data to Beneath is currently an alpha feature. Send a note to if you are interested!
