Access rights to my wallet

Which credentials grant Alby what access rights to my connected wallet?
That depends on the wallet that you connect to Alby. Different APIs allow different access rights such as read only, receive only, full access (i.e. send payments) or other rights. For example, if you connect your LND node to Alby you have the choice of adding an admin.macaroon (send- and receive rights), a readonly.macaroon (read only rights) or an invoice.macaroon (receive only rights) either directly or via an lndconnect string to Alby. In order to enjoy the full functionality of Alby you would need to give Alby sending and receiving rights.
