Authentication and SSO by LoginRadius



The Authentication and SSO by LoginRadius WordPress plugin allow you to replace the default WordPress Authentication feature with diverse authentication methods, including standard login (email login), social login, phone login, and passwordless login. This plugin also provides the forgot password and reset password features.

The other benefits you get from using this plugin are enhanced security via multi-factor authentication, frictionless user experience via single sign-on, and effective user management features. Lets have a more in-depth look into the plugin features:

Diverse Authentication Methods:

You get to choose a user authentication method based on your target audience and use cases.

  • Standard login (email login): You can customize the registration fields based on your business nature, where email id and password remain the default fields. Once registered, the consumers can log in to their account using the email id and password.
  • Social login: You can choose the desired social providers from 20+ social providers like Facebook, Google, Twitter, as a quick and convenient registration and login approach for consumers. It is easy to configure the social login options using this plugin.
  • Phone login: You can allow consumers to register and log in using their phone number and password. Once registered, the consumers are required to verify their phone number via an OTP. Upon verification, they can log in to your application.
  • Passwordless login: You can allow consumers to login without a password. A link or OTP is sent to the registered email id or phone number of the consumer, and upon clicking the link or entering the OTP, consumers get logged into their account.

Frictionless Authentication via SSO:

It also lets you implement SSO (single sign-on) across your or third party applications. SSO omits the requirement of your consumer registering or repeatedly logging on the authorized applications and enables them to have a frictionless authentication experience. It enables consumers to access multiple applications with a single set of login credentials and an active login session.

Enhanced Security via MFA:

For enhanced security, you can enable a multi-factor authentication feature and request your consumers to authenticate themself with OTP or Google Authenticator (as an added authentication factor to initial login). This process acts as an additional security layer to the standard authentication process.

Effective User Management:

The consumers data remains available in the WordPress Admin Panel and the LoginRadius Admin Console. And you can efficiently perform all user management actions in the LoginRadius Admin Console, permitting the necessary support to your consumers in managing their accounts.

In addition to the above, the plugin offers the following additional features:

  • Easy to integrate via API secret and API key (available in your LoginRadius Account).
  • Reduces user abandonment rates.
  • LoginRadius manages consumer provisioning, de-provisioning, authentication, and authorization. Hence no extra efforts are needed to handle registration, login, reset passwords flows.
  • Existing data migration to LoginRadius Admin Console and those migrated users can authenticate themself on your WordPress application.
  • Data is encrypted end to end at transmission as well as at rest.
  • Enable interface customizations to meet your brand requirements.
  • Customizable email and SMS templates that you can personalize according to consumers and their demographics.
  • Configurable email and SMS providers to send out the standard emails and SMS to the consumers.
  • Option to set registration methods and fields as per the target audience.
  • Compliant with GDPR and CCPA data protection laws.
  • Fully compatible with Buddypress and bbPress.
  • Fully compatible with the Multisite feature.
  • Top-notch support (247) and integration help.

The plugin has simple shortcodes that let you add registration, login, forgot password, and reset password interfaces anywhere to your application. Or you can create these authentication interfaces from the plugin.
