Personal access tokens are the preferred way for third party applications and scripts to
authenticate with the [GitLab API][api], if using [OAuth2](../../api/oauth2.md) is not practical.
You can also use them to authenticate against Git over HTTP. They are the only
accepted method of authentication when you have
[Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)][2fa] enabled.
You can also use personal access tokens to authenticate against Git over HTTP or SSH. They must be used when you have [Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)][2fa] enabled. Authenticate with a token in place of your password.
Once you have your token, [pass it to the API][usage] using either the
`private_token` parameter or the `Private-Token` header.
To make [authenticated requests to the API][usage], use either the `private_token` parameter or the `Private-Token` header.
The expiration of personal access tokens happens on the date you define,
at midnight UTC.
