Do I need to create two tenants in this scenario?

Hi there,

I’m just starting with Auth0 so bear with me. Here’s the setup I would like:

  1. Mobile frontend which uses SMS-based passwordless auth for consumers
  2. Web frontend which uses email-based passwordless auth for viewers of the consumer app data (i.e. not the same accounts as the mobile apps)

In this scenario, do we need to have multiple tenants or how does Auth0 handle this?

Thank you.

Hi @iwasrobbed,

Thanks for joining the Community!

To set up auth for these two types of authentication scenarios (mobile and web/spa), you won’t need two tenants, just two applications.

It might be helpful to take a look at the Native Application quickstarts and the SPA quickstarts. From there you can select the technologies you are using and follow a tutorial to get a couple example apps up and running.


Thank you @stephanie.chamblee


Multi-tenant – Multi-tenancy means that a single instance of the software and its supporting infrastructure serves multiple customers. iMessage Each customer shares the software application and also shares a single database. Each tenant’s data is isolated and remains invisible to other tenants.
