Congratulations for successfully setting up your Twilio credentials! Now, input these credentials into your Postman account. This is a one-time set-up.
Why is this step needed? You can think of credentials as a passcode that you need to enter into a keypad in order to get into a door. We need your credentials to contact Twilio's API.
If you want to be able to reuse your credentials, you need to save them under settings.
