Email and Social (Default)
Users will be able to sign up and log in to your app using their Email, Facebook, Google, or LinkedIn account. iPhone users will also have the option to sign in with their Apple account.
This is the default selection, and provides the user with the most options for signing up.
Users will be able to sign up and log in to your app using their email account.
This is recommended for events using the Invite Only privacy setting. Email Only is also a good option for events that want a simple sign-up process, with no social networks associated. With this option, attendees create their profile from scratch, and can connect their social accounts later.
Users will be able to sign up and log in to your app using their existing Facebook, Google, or LinkedIn account. iPhone users will also have the option to sign in with their Apple account.
If available in their social profile, their first name, last name and picture will be auto-populated in the app. This is a good option to save the user time, and to help ensure that profiles are populated.
Single Sign-On (SSO)
⭐️ Keep in mind, SSO is an additional cost add-on feature and can only be used with a Branded Event App. Not sure which app you're using? Check out our Socio Event App vs Branded Event App article, or reach out to your Socio contact.
The SSO option allows app users to log in with their company or association credentials. SSO makes it easy to log in, since users don't need to create another account. User management is also simplified with SSO — when an employee is no longer with the company, your IT department can simply disable them from your system and they will be disabled from the app as well.
⭐️ Keep in mind, if the SSO option is selected, no other login options will be enabled (Google, Facebook, etc.). Therefore, all app users must have a SSO account.
To choose this option, click Activate SSO. You will be prompted to select or purchase your SSO credit. Next, you will be prompted to upload the picture and add a name for the button. You must also provide the contact information for an IT contact at your company, who we will reach out to to pass setup information too.
