How to enable only social login

Viafoura enables both email login and social login, giving users the option to register either using an email address or a social media account. Both login types have their benefits: Email registration allows users to register with just an email address and password. Social login connects to a social network and can retrieve basic user information such as age, gender, education level, and interests.

If you prefer to only allow social login, please follow the steps below.

Please note: Moderators with a Viafoura account will no longer be able to moderate from the story level.
