Hi!🙂

Artificial intelligence for the analysis and improvement of code security works associated with a Shield project, that is, each time security learns and improves on your code, for this it is necessary that you have an account.

If you want to use the CLI, it is necessary to use an api key that relates to your account and is capable of resolving the dependencies and libraries that your application requires.

To create the account you do not need a credit card or payment method, it is simply an email where you can associate your projects and manage them.

You can read the documentation at:
dotnetsafer.com/docs/product/shiel...
and thus understand why you need an account.

Thanks for your time! 🤗
