Social login is an authentication technique that allows users to login on a website with their existing social media accounts, such as Google, Facebook, or Twitter.

Instead of having to remember a new username and password users are able to login to their Facebook or Twitter accounts to access their existing accounts.

For WordPress sites, integrating a social login means providing a seamless, user-friendly experience. Account holders can login quickly, reducing the friction that can result in abandoned accounts and a lack of interaction.

No more forgotten passwords or difficult recovery methods. Just a smooth, hassle-free login experience that keeps them coming back.

        Fewer clicks, lesser frustration. That's the main thing to a better experience. It all begins with the login.        

Social login means that your users do not have to spend any mental energy trying to retrieve their username and password from their memory banks. What they need is just a few mouse clicks to be in! The process isn't any more simple than that.

The ease of access to information plays a huge role in retaining members.

In allowing visitors to return to your site with just a few clicks via the accounts they use most frequently on social media, you're making it even easier for them to engage and interact with your site.

In addition, the social login reduces the risk of customer loss if they forget your password.

In a poll carried out by Blue Research, 92% of respondents claimed that they'd opted to leave the website rather than reset or recover login information, and 31% said they frequently use this method.

If you offer social logins to your customers to users, you reduce the likelihood of these issues and offer a pleasant, continuous user experience, which encourages them to connect your website easily and with confidence.

Every time a user has to come up with a unique password, there's an opportunity for security threats to sneak in.

A majority of users reuse the same passwords across different websites, which could make a security breach the result of a chain reaction of compromise of accounts.

Social login is connecting to the top security infrastructure of the giants such as Facebook and Google and transferring the heavy lifting of managing passwords to the people who are the best at it.

"We've tested a few other tools for membership that came as part of the packages we'd purchased. However, none of them can compete with the Member. There's certainly plenty of amazing things that users have built over time. When it comes down to customizing, if you are using WordPress it's impossible to do this. Naturally, I'm bias, but we've made thousands of dollars through this program."
