# API Authentication
The Getform API is organized around REST. Our API returns JSON-encoded responses, and uses standard HTTP response codes, authentication.
All Getform API endpoints accept authentication by passing your token as a GET parameter. You can find your form specific API token under your "Form Settings" page on your form dashboard.

- Each token you generate is form specific and you need to use a different token for each form.
- Make sure to keep the API token secret. If you notice that it's been compromised, you can use "Refresh Token" button to regenerate it.
- Make sure to change your
getform_api_tokenin the call above with your unique form ID and API token, otherwise you won't get the correct response for your API call.
