    How to make sure your users correctly logged in with github?

    Hello.

    People can log into my app using their github account.

    I manage to get "access_token" as described there: http://develop.github.com/p/oauth.html

    Once I have that access_token, is it safe to let users access my app? Is the access_token the proof that I have a valid user or is there any further check I should do?

    (Note: basically, I'm just using github as a login system, I don't need to access github api once I have checked the user's credentials and received the access_token)

    Regards,

    -jj.

    Once you have the access_token then you are good to go.
    Nothing more you need to do.
    Logic without the fatal effects.
