Why is the widget token getting expired?
We would like to share a use case when a token can expire: Something like you have created a Facebook or Instagram widget but you are not using the widget anywhere in your other applications/websites etc. and even if you have not browsed the widget from the FeedWind application within the last 60 days, the token will expire and you need to follow the authorization process to revalidate it.
