Does developer need log-in credentials to continue Dapp development?

I am having a dapp developed for an NFT marketplace. The developers are requesting log-in credentials for my DigitalOcean account in order to setup droplet. Is this standard practice? I want to make sure to avoid any security risks. Thanks in advance.

There are a few things that you could do in this case:

  • Create the Droplet yourself and provide the developer with access to the Droplet only rather than your whole account

  • Create a Team as per the instructions here and grant the developer access to that specific team only rather than sharing the credentials to your personal DigitalOcean account

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
