Amazon Cloud Drive post 11/2020

Hello,

It looks like Amazon is starting to remove 3rd party access to Cloud Drive on November 1st. Will this affect ODrive access as well?
I’m pasting in an email I got from Amazon about Synology access.

Dear Customer,

We’re writing to let you know about an upcoming change that may affect how you access your content on Amazon Drive, and to help you take steps to keep your content safe.

We understand that you have used Synology Cloud Sync or Hyper Backup on Synology NAS to store information on Amazon Drive.

Amazon will discontinue access to Amazon Drive by Synology Cloud Sync and Hyper Backup starting on November 1st, 2020. Neither application will have access to Amazon Drive after November 1st, 2020, and the only way you will be able to access your stored content will be via Amazon Drive or Amazon Photos web, desktop, and mobile apps.

To ensure a smooth transition, we urge all Synology Cloud Sync and Hyper Backup users to follow these steps:

For Photo and Video content:
1. If you haven’t already, download the Amazon Photos mobile or desktop app. (The mobile app is for photos and videos stored on your phone. The desktop app saves content stored on a hard drive or computer.) Or, you can use the web version by visiting: https://www.amazon.com/photos.
Check to see if your content includes encrypted files or special file formats. If your files are encrypted, you’ll need to save the content in a different format. More information on how to access backup and encrypted data has been provided by Synology and can be found by visiting: https://sy.to/rogvp
2. Upload your unencrypted content to Amazon Photos, using the apps or website.

For other files:
1. If you haven’t already, download the Amazon Cloud Drive app. Or, you can use the web version by visiting: https://www.amazon.com/clouddrive.
Check to see if your content includes encrypted files or special file formats. If your files are encrypted, you’ll need to save the content in a different format. More information on how to access backup and encrypted data has been provided by Synology and can be found by visiting: https://sy.to/rogvp
2. Upload your unencrypted content to Amazon Drive, using the app or website.

After completing these steps, you’ll be able to access your content even after access to Drive by Synology Cloud Sync and Hyper Backup are discontinued.

We understand this may be a difficult adjustment, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you,
Amazon Photos and Drive team

Thanks

Hi @themadcomputerfreak,
They did something similar last year to several 3rd parties, as well. As far as we are aware, odrive will retain access to the Amazon Drive/Photos APIs.

We have not received any developer notifications from Amazon regarding them blocking access to the API and we have not received any end-user notifications like the one you posted for odrive access restrictions.

In light of this continuing trend, however, it may be a good idea for users switch login providers to another service if they are currently using Amazon to login to odrive (https://www.odrive.com/account/profile).

If we hear any different, we will immediately announce it. Please also let us know if you receive any e-mails from Amazon regarding odrive.
