What is the purpose of the API key and where to store it?

I am new to mobile development and currently developing a react native Samsung Blockchain DApp using the platform SDK (without an API key). On the DApp submission process it says I have to request an API key. What is the purpose of this API key (do i have to use it anywhere in the code) and where do I store it inside the app (code) safely?

Hello @pabz ,

Hope you are doing well! An API key is needed for using the Samsung Blockchain Keystore cold wallet through Samsung Blockchain Platform SDK.

You can register to get the API Key from here. After obtaining the API Key you need to use this in your AndroidMainfest.xml file. To learn more please check Step 7 of the Getting Started guide.
