Social Media Authentication

  • Updated

 

Social media authentication enables visitors to connect to your Guest WiFi using their social media credentials, ensuring a quick and simple login. Our captive portal can leverage the visitor data captured so you can begin to understand exactly who your visitors are by building detailed profiles; helping you drive meaningful marketing campaigns that increase engagement.

 

Supported social login methods include Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Other custom development options are available, such as OneClick. For more information on these options, please contact your Purple account manager.

 

To use Social Media login methods (Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn) you must set these up in ManagementVenuesAccess Methods.

 

Login methods then actively need to be added to your offline splash pages using either the standard splash page builder or custom HTML.

 

SAML/Staff WiFi can be set on the Splash Page however, you'll first need to set up a Connector - please see our guide to set up here.

 

AppleID does not require additional configuration and can be enabled on the Splash Page

 

The following table shows the information the portal collects when a user logs in via social media, if the user shares that information:

The Follow On Form is available to collect any details that might be required and if you have a specific detail that you might need to understand, you might also add a Custom Form option.

 

SMS authentication also collects the mobile number, it is an option within the Access Journey that you can use to validate a provided Mobile phone login. A Twilio connector must be set up in order to use the SMS functionality.
