Is it safe to share SECURITY-APPNAME in frontend code / a browser extension?

Is it safe to share the SECURITY-APPNAME parameter in frontend JS code (for use with JSONP) or a browser extension? Based on https://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/finding/HowTo/GettingStarted_JS_NV_JSON/GettingStarted_JS_NV_JSON.html - it seems like that's recommended, but if someone copies it out of the source, couldn't they use up our API quota? We want to search eBay from a Chrome extension and display results on Amazon and other sites to promote reuse by highlighting used items on eBay.

Hi @tectonic_earth, We apologize for the confusion. No,this is not down [ https://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/finding/HowTo/GettingStarted_JS_NV_JSON/ GettingStarted_JS_NV_JSON.html ][1] Yes, it is safe but you must take care of the script tags.

Should https://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/finding/HowTo/GettingStarted_JS_NV_JSON/GettingStarted_JS_NV_JSON.html be taken down, then? It implies that doing this with frontend code is safe.

Hi @tectonic_earth, No, it is not safe. A front end vulnerability happens when someone is able to harm your website, application, or users, without ever having to gain access to a server, database, or hosting provider. Best Regards eBay Developer Support
