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.


Github login is possible on any WordPress website using Social Login.
Github offers its user's code hosting and distributed version control using git. It is extremely popular in the coding community as users can store and manage their code effortlessly.
Github WordPress Integration is a powerful tool to have. Thus we use secure authorization protocols to log users into your website in seconds. Enable your users to use their existing Github account to login/register without having to remember another set of username and password. They can simply choose to login with github.
