Configure Social Login into WordPress using Dropbox | Dropbox SSO Plugin





What is Social Login?


Social Login allows users to connect to any website using various networking platforms such as Facebook, Google, or Twitter. It is a form of single sign-on for users designed and implemented to make logging in easier for end-users. Using social login users can sign into any third-party website without having to create an account.


How does Social Login Works?


The social login process is extremely simple. Users come to your website and select whichever social login provider they want to login. They fill in their details on the social network provider’s site. Once the authentication process is completed by the social provider the user can start using your WordPress website. If they are a new user then they are registered and if they are an existing user they are logged in.


Dropbox Login for WordPress
Dropbox is a cloud storage (file hosting) service that lets you save files online and sync them to your devices.
You can easily share files and folders using Dropbox links with other people without sending large attachments. By synchronizing your Dropbox files locally and online, you can easily access these files anywhere and share them with others more easily.
Enabling Dropbox login on your WordPress Store will allow your users to login easily with their existing dropbox account.
