Introduction

Authentication, Authentication bridges, Authentication - Cloud based, Social Media

Allow your users to log in with their social media profile (Facebook, Twitter etc) or account (GitHub, Google, Microsoft).


Your users can login or create a new user account to your site using their social media profile (Facebook, Twitter etc) or account (GitHub, Google, Microsoft).

For example, someone can create a user account on your site using their Facebook login, without going through Joomla's user registration process. The created user accounts can either be activated immediately (e.g. when it's a verified Facebook account, i.e. Facebook has verified the user's email and/or mobile phone number) or go through Joomla's account activation process (click on the link sent by email). This is faster for the user and easier for you, since in most cases the email address of the user has already been verified by the social network and they don't have to go through Joomla's email address verification.

The following social networks are supported

  • Facebook
  • LinkedIn
  • Twitter

The following third party services are supported:

  • AppleID (requires a paid Apple developer subscription)
  • GitHub account
  • Google account
  • Microsoft account

We have two actively maintained versions. SocialLogin 3 is compatible with Joomla 3.10 and PHP 7.2 or later. SocialLogin 4 is compatible with Joomla 4 and PHP 7.2 or later. Older, unsupported versions for end–of–life versions of PHP and Joomla are available on our site.

The Joomla 4 version uses the new additional login buttons feature in Joomla — the same feature used by Joomla's own Web Authentication plugin — to provide a seamless user experience. The Joomla 3 versions uses a JavaScript workaround to inject the social login buttons. It optionally allows you to instead use a single line of code in your template overrides to control and customize the position and display of the social login buttons.

Both versions can be easily extended by developers using standard Joomla plugins. This allows you to integrate social networks we don't support yet, or even quickly develop an integration with a Single Sign On (SSO) solution used by your company.
