Social login for membership sites
Last updated on: 

Integrating social login into a membership site benefits members and site owners. Members can easily access the site using their existing social media credentials, simplifying the registration process, and your workload as a site owner would be reduced.

With open registration, your visitors can sign up for access directly from your login form – using their social credentials or their email – so they can access your free content right away. This is a great way to get new members on your site and promote paid content.

This built-in integration with Google, Facebook and Microsoft requires you to create login apps for each platform you want to offer as a social login option. If you need assistance setting up your third-party app, reach out to Google, Facebook or Microsoft to troubleshoot.
