Some applications require access to APIs on behalf of the user even when the user is not present, i.e. offline access. OAuth is a protocol that allows applications to obtain a token to access an API when the user is not present but when the tokens expire they need to be renewed. Some APIs like Google and support automatic renewal of expired tokens.
