Hello Airtable Team & community. I want to check something; currently, I’m using Airtable with some automation tools and I have some concerns about the security of these platforms.

In my Airtable base, there’s one table that I’m particularly concerned about being breached. My question is, if I restrict access with the following settings: .



Will the API if it breached did they still can access to this tables ?


Thanks in advance.

I believe (not 100% sure) that given the setting you show in the screenshots. Only you would be able to modify create/delete records in the table with your accounts Personal Access Tokens.

If whatever background automation you have set up uses your accounts tokens, then the automation would still be able to create/delete records. If another User tried to create/delete records with their Personal Access Tokens, they shouldn't be permitted to do that.
