Embedded login

With this option, each app has to have its own login User Interface (UI).

When a user attempts to log in to your application or site, they authenticate directly within the currently used application instead of being directed to a centralized web application to authenticate the user.

You can seamlessly integrate authentication journeys into your app, giving you complete control over the end user experience.

Use cases

  • If branding and controlling the user experience (UX) is important, using an embedded UI may be a good choice.

  • Control and flexibility of the UI and UX is more important to you than consistency, since each app implements its own authentication UI.

  • Your mobile apps do not use browser-based single-sign on.

For instructions on enabling embedded login, follow the JavaScript tutorials.

Security considerations

  • If a third-party hosts or controls your application or site, a third-party can access and misuse the user credentials.
