Native Login with Facebook-Public Beta
We are shipping a set of APIs and SDKs that make it possible for customers to implement native login with Facebook, the same way it can be done with Apple.
It will have two consequences:
- Greatly improve the UX for authenticating with Facebook in Mobile apps
- Will let our customers comply with Facebook’s application guidelines
Compliance with Social Login requirements
In the past months, several social login providers have been increasing their requirements to integrate applications with their authentication frameworks. Specifically, Facebook has been requesting all mobile applications to use their SDK to authenticate:
We collaborated with Facebook to design a solution that will let us authenticate Facebook users in native apps while complying with these rules.
In Android, the Facebook SDK shows a modal dialog on top of the current application and lets the user authenticate with the user that is authenticated in the Facebook application installed in the device.
In iOS, still shows a webpage, but:
- It prompts the user to open “Facebook.com” instead of the tenant domain.
- The webpage can open the Facebook application, and let the user authenticate with it.
