Custom Social Login

Any user can register and/or log in to your community using Facebook, Google Plus accounts or SSO. 

If you want your own social applications to be shown for users while creating accounts in your community, go to Administration » Applications and enable Social Login. Then click Settings and follow the below instructions.

All our customers with the self-hosted package should keep the system up-to-date in order to have social login working correctly.
