Social Signin users and Migrated Users with the same email

We are looking to migrate existing users and allow them to use Social Signins to authenticate.

From trying this out with standard auth0 username/password and Google signins, it appears that when I authenticate with Google, even though there is an existing Username/Password with the same email, we would effectively have 2 different identities passed to our application is this correct?

If so how would you recommend we allow users to add social signin to access their existing accounts?

Hi @kevin.richards1,

Welcome to the Auth0 Community!

For this, I recommend linking the accounts together so that the secondary account (Google social login) can be linked to the primary account (username/password). Once the accounts are linked, there will only be one unified user profile.

I hope this addresses your question.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
