Summary

 

@kukicado

Modern authentication is complex.

OAuth 2.0 offers solutions / flows for most use cases.

Implementing OAuth 2.0 can provide a competitive advantage.

Sign in With Apple

@kukicado

Why?

1.4 Billion Apple Devices in the wild

50%+ iPhones already on iOS 13

If using social login on iOS must support by April 2020

@kukicado

Challenges

Focus on end user privacy with Hide My Email

Multiple flows to support - Native and Web

Limited access from CIAM perspective

@kukicado

Auth0 + Sign In With Apple

Add with the flip of a switch

Account linking and progressive profiling
