# Access Overview

# Overview

The AccelByte Cloud Access service is responsible for access to all of the services within our platform and handles requests from the Admin Portal, your players, and applications as they work to support gameplay. These services use the OAuth 2.0 (opens new window) framework for authentication and authorization.

The AccelByte Cloud Access service offers several advantages for game developers, including:

  • Fine-grained roles and permissions Our platform requires a unique permission string for each of our endpoints, so you can create roles for your team members to give them the precise access they need.

  • Cross-platform progression We pave the way for players to play your game across different platforms with our account linking service. When your players link their third-party platform accounts to your game or platform, they'll be able to access their gameplay and progression data from whichever platform they play on.

  • Legal compliance made easy The AccelByte Cloud Admin Portal gives you a convenient place to manage your Terms of Service agreement, Privacy Policy, and End User License Agreement (EULA). You can upload new documents or localizations, schedule publishing, and check which players have agreed to which agreements.
