    For some reason, I can not authenticate my apps anymore?

    When I launch my app ( a bulkuploader ) i get the login page to login and then i manually authorize the app. I get the pin, wich i then put in to my app.

    All of a sudden this is not working anymore??? I get the username / password do not match dialog. And I am sure they do!!! ( checked it a gazillion times. )

    The login page for humans has additional checking which we sadly need because of some bad actors, seems your bulk uploader is caught by it. But there is good news for you too : You don't need to manually authorize an app every time you use it, just reuse the ACCESS_TOKEN.

    From :
    5. How often do I need to authenticate?
    That depends on what sort of app you have, but know that access tokens do not expire.
