API isn't working (thru GSAK)


Recommended Posts

I received an API connection error when I tried to refresh some cache data via GSAK.  I refreshed my token and tried again but received same api connection error.


So I navigated to status.geocaching.com to check the server status and received an alarming message that someone might be trying to steal my data (see attached screen print).  Any idea what is going on?

Just ran a full pseudo-PQ here on my usual geographic area with GSAK without issue (just about the time you posted).  So probably transitory.

Looks to me like a certificate error for https on your computer's end.

No problem whatsoever using GSAK and API.

The warning you see has to do with the certificate for https:\\status.geocaching.com. The certificate is for pingdom.com (the organization that monitors the uptime) and not geocaching.com, hence the error.
