How can I save a "private" point through the API

Hi folks.

So I’m doing a project in where I’m requested to use an authenticated API. I thought of an app for saving points on a map.

I looked through the documentation of the OSM API but just found calls for editing the OSM map. What I would like to do is to call the API, authenticate myself (with my osm credentials), and save a private point just for me. And then obviously call the api to get such point.

Is there a way to do so with the OSM API? Is there another API that covers this feature?


Hi and welcome to OSM and the Forum

You can’t save private data in OSM. Try services like .
