Google is one of the leading ID provider in the Social Login space as over 20% end-users prefer Google ID to log in to third party site; hence, most of the website owners want to integrate Google authentication on their sites. Google is taking initiative in this process and recently launched enhanced version of their API and moved to oAuth version 2.0. Google has added lots of new features in terms of API permission and user profile data resulting into quicker authentication/registration process on your website.
Being a leading Social Infrastructure via SaaS, LoginRadius has also integrated latest Google oAuth 2.0 API in its Core Engine. The beauty of LoginRadius SaaS solution is that our customers need not to worry about changes/upgradation in ID Providers’ APIs, as we keep our service updated and they need not to do anything at their ends.
Earlier Google was using oAuth 1.0 protocol, but our transition from Google OAuth 1.o to Google OAuth 2.0 will not affect the existing 1000s website owners. New users can use oAuth 2.0 with all the features while existing users can migrate to new Google API version, when they are ready for it.
So what does oAuth-2.0 bring to the website owners and end-users:
- Users have more transparency and control over profile data.
- Improved and enhanced login interface.
- More secure and safer data transfer.
- Users can see what data are being shared with website owners.
- Quick and easy setup of Google App.
- Deliver extended user profile data and permissions.
