BZFlag provides a service to allow third party sites to use bzflag login info to authenticate users. This can be very useful and allows many sites the ability to do lots of cool things. When using one of these sites, it must send you first to the bzflag.org site to login. This prevents the website from being able to capture your password. A third party site should never ask a user for a global password directly. When entering in login information, users can check the address bar of the page they are using and check to see that it is my.bzflag.org. No other addresses will keep passwords secure.

In order to allow users to authenticate on your website using the official BZFlag service, you can utilize the [https://github.com/BZFlag-Dev/bzflag/blob/2.4/misc/checkToken.php checkToken.php] script.
