We are looking to implement our first mobile app login through Auth0. We are considering passwordless login with email address for simplicity here. We are not planning on doing social logins at this time, since we really want to capture the actual email address of the user.
We are using the New Universal Login experience for our web portal, so we assume we would use this same experience for our mobile app. I see that Magic Link login is not available for Universal Login experience, so we have eliminated this as an option.
At the end of the day, we want to have a customer profile that contains a validated email address and a validated mobile phone number. We are wondering how much out of the box Auth0 functionality can help us achieve this.
We are thinking that passwordless / OTP via email will help us validate the email address.
I found the article Configure SMS and Voice Notifications for MFA. Because our simple app is something that lets you join a nearby waitlist, I’m not sure if the whole “Verify Your Identity” screens from Auth0 might be off-putting to one of our end users if we use those screens to verify their mobile number using SMS for MFA.
Since I saw there were options to create custom actions / custom workflow for Auth0, I wasn’t sure if there was a creative way to get a validated email address and validated mobile number without going through these formal screens.
Any options I should consider here?
