Logging InAlong with the recent new Dashboard and UI we have also changed the way in which we handle logins or more technically identity authentication. We have partnered with industry leader auth0.com to bring enhanced security and the option of using your Google or Facebook accounts for logging into guestbook247.com.
Why the need to change? Technology and methods of providing the safest and easiest ways to secure access to systems has moved on. And with more people wanting to use social media accounts for authenticating access to other apps we needed a solution, auth0 offers that. Beyond this auth0 offers better methods to detect unauthorised access attempts, block nasty bots or scripts from attacking our apps and provide us the tools to monitor and react to threats. Using a partner that specialises in all things identity means we can concentrate on adding great new features to guestbook247 whilst trusting that auth0 will protect your account and offer more login options.
Why use Social Media?
You can now optionally decide to use your Facebook or Google account to authenticate when using guestbook 247. Why would you want to? It saves you from having to have yet another separate username and password to create & remember. When you use Google or Facebook as your identity provider you are saying that you trust them to identify you for guestbook 247. You can review or stop that trust link from Facebook or Google at any time, giving you control. Guestbook 247 only requires minimal information from Google and Facebook, we're only interested in the associated email address and we do display your social media profile picture.
If you are uneasy using your social media account to grant access to guestbook 247 then you can always use an email address and password.
