Leveraging Social Accounts for Authentication

score 65
You have not voted. Not Planned

Context: In order to interact on BMC Communities, an account is needed (see this post).


Issue: having to remember login and password is not fun (even if Remember Me helps)


Proposal: What about making it faster and easier to create and use an account, by leveraging a Social account you already have, on Google or Yahoo? (or even Facebook, Linkedin, or Twitter)


Benefits would be:

  1. Faster account creation
  2. No need to remember login or password, it just leverages your existing social account



Update on July 6th: Social authentication is now considered (in mid-term roadmap) as an optional way to log in
