Token leaks are one of the most common security mistakes, and they can have disastrous consequences. GitHub Token Scanning looks for leaked tokens in public repositories and works with the issuer to notify the developer and/or revoke the token as appropriate. This protects users from fraud or data leaks. Starting today, GitHub has partnered with GoCardless, HashiCorp, Postman, and Tencent Cloud to scan for their respective developer tokens.
