Social authentication refers to using existing login information from a social network provider such as Facebook or Twitter to log in to a third-party website.
This step can save time and make life easier for your applicants, as they do not need to create a new account to take part in your program.
In Good Grants, the option to enable social authentication is available under Settings > Users > Registration.
Simply check your preferred options from the options listed in your account.
Once selected and the settings saved, the social buttons will appear on the login screen, and the user can simply select their preference.
On the first login via social authentication, the user will be redirected to a login or confirmation screen of the social network provider to verify their identity.
They may be presented with a consent screen outlining which details the social network provider will share.
This consent is generated by the social network provider, not Good Grants. If the user does not wish to agree to the settings, they can simply cancel the process and register as normal.
