Mapsly's shared maps use your Mapbox access token to load map tiles. To get this token, sign up for a Mapbox account which will provide 200k tile loads per month free-of-charge.

Sign up for a Mapbox account

If you don't have a Mapbox account yet, sign up for an account at https://account.mapbox.com/auth/signup/

Create a new access token

While your Mapbox account has a default public access token out-of-the-box, we recommend creating a new one specifically for Mapsly. To do this, in your Mapbox account's homepage, or at https://account.mapbox.com/access-tokens/ page:

1- Press the Create a token button:

2- A Create an access token page will open:

Here, leave the scopes selected by default checked (don't change them).

To prevent unauthorized usage of your token, restrict its usage only in Mapsly by

entering https://app.mapsly.com into the URL in the Token restrictions section and clicking Add URL button on the right, so the page looks like this:

Then press Create token.

3- On the Access tokens page that will open, click the blue Copy button near your new "Mapsly" token - to copy your access token into the clipboard:

Use your Mapbox token in the Shared maps settings

Now you can paste the token into the Shared maps plug-in settings:

In Mapsly, on the Shared maps page click the Settings button:

Paste your token into the Mapbox access token field and click Save:
