Social Login and Federation Identity
If the website visitor is forced to fill in the registration form, confirm the email, remember or restore the forgotten password, he can leave the site and go to some other portal.
A good way to solve the problem is to log in through social networks. This will greatly simplify the registration process on the site and will save users from having to remember another password.
Enable logging into your applications through social networking accounts and perform all the necessary settings in the Blitz Identity Provider administrative console and on the social network’s side. It’s easy and only takes a few minutes!

How to use social networks for user authentication
Scenarios for B2C applications
Internet users can use their social network accounts to:
- automatic registration of an account on your site while entering through a social network account
- link a social network account to an existing account while first logging in to his or her personal account
Scenarios for B2B and business applications
There are cases when a company may be interested in allowing employees to link their personal account on a social network to their service account. Employees will be able to use social network accounts as an alternative way to enter the company’s applications. This option will be useful if the work of your employees does not involve the use of a computer (for example, workers’ factories, transport drivers), but you want to give your employees convenient access using their home computers, tablets and smartphones to the company intranet portal, electronic salary sheets etc.
Social networks can be used by individuals who are not regular employees of the company, but who need some access to the company’s applications. These categories of users include:
- Candidates for company vacancies in the process of interviews
- Freelancers and temporarily hired employees
- Representatives of companies of customers / partners / contractors
For all these categories, the ability to log in through a social network account can be more convenient and secure than setting up an account in a corporate domain.
Federation Identity and trust networks
Enable the trust network based on the Blitz Identity Provider. This will allow employees of partner organizations to log into your applications based on the authorization of the Blitz Identity Provider of their organizations. And vice versa: your employees will have access to the applications of partner organizations.
