Configuring third-party authentication services
Third-party authentication services provide an alternative way for users to sign in and register on your site. This way, they do not need to go through the registration process and create a new username and password for your site. Instead, they can use the same credentials that they already use on a popular site or service (such as Microsoft accounts, Facebook, LinkedIn, Yahoo!, etc.).
Even new users can sign in to your site like this, in which case the system creates a new user account in the database for them. To learn how to manage the data of imported users, see Managing user accounts created via third-party authentication services.
Kentico supports the following authentication providers:
- Windows Live ID (Microsoft Account)
- Facebook Connect
