In the world of data management, security is paramount. One way to ensure the security of your data is by periodically rotating your API keys. This blog post will guide you through the process of managing your SQLizer API keys.

Why Rotate API Keys?

Rotating API keys is a common security practice. It involves changing API keys at regular intervals, which can help prevent unauthorized access to your account. If an API key is accidentally leaked or gets into the wrong hands, the potential damage can be limited by rotating the key.
