Social login allows your users with a unified authentication experience when they browse through either your applications and/or third party apps. Once your users logged into any one of the applications by using their user ID and password, they don’t have to enter their login credentials again and again to access other applications. They will be automatically logged into all the applications irrespective of the domain, technology or platform. We provide social login integration with Facebook.
Enabling Facebook Login
By enabling the Facebook login feature on your website and mobile app you can allow your subscribers/users to log in to your website or mobile app by using their Facebook account. To enable Facebook Login on your website or mobile app, you need a Facebook App. Either you can allow us to create and manage Facebook App or you can create the Facebook App yourself and provide us the necessary information to enable Facebook login. You can also deactivate the Facebook login on your website.
- When users log in to your website/app through Facebook login, the homepage will open first.
- If you have already logged in through mobile app using Facebook login and try to open your store in the web browser, it will not allow you to log in automatically. You need to type your user ID and password again to login to your store.
- If you will register through a Facebook account that is registered by using the phone number, then the email ID captured for the user account will take the first name of the user and create the email ID as First_Name@facebook.com.
