Social Login

Use Facebook, Google or GitHub authentication to login to Frappe, and your users will be spared from remembering another password.

The system uses the Email Address supplied by these services to match with an existing user in Frappe. If no such user is found, a new user is created of the default type Website User, if Signup is not disabled in Website Settings. Any System Manager can later change the user type from Website User to System User, so that the user can access the Desktop.

To enable these signups, you need to have Client ID and Client Secret from these authentication services for your Frappe site. The Client ID and Client Secret are to be set in Desktop > Integration > Authentication > Social Login Key > Client ID and Desktop > Integration > Authentication > Social Login Key > Client Secret. Here are the steps to obtain these credentials.

Use https://{{ yoursite }} if your site is HTTPS enabled.
