Cloud Identity Consumer Identity Features

Integrate Social Sign On

Allow users to login with their LinkedIn, Google, Facebook and Twitter accounts, as well as regional or geography-specific social networks.

Use one authentication framework for all your applications

Onboard any application to be centrally managed with Cloud Identity. This gives you access to thousands of connectors for popular SaaS applications, and the ability to integrate OAuth2, OIDC and SAML 2.0 applications into the platform.

Make identity developer-friendly

Developers shouldn't have to be identity experts to work with IAM platforms. With Cloud Identity's APIs, software development kits, and resources, make it easy to build and launch new applications securely.

Comply with data protection regulations

Data privacy regulations, such as GDPR and CCPA, require clear and transparent user consent. Track privacy and consent preferences, giving users control over what is shared to the applications they touch.

Monitor activity and performance

Monitor the health of your authentication program with easy-to-use reporting on application usage, authentication transactions and token management details.

Support the latest user authentication methods

User authentication methods change every day. Use traditional methods or reduce your username/password reliance with support for methods like FIDO U2F / FIDO 2, mobile push notification approval, and fingerprint /face recognition.

Implement user management and self-care

Build identity operations into your consumer-facing apps with easy-to-consume REST APIs for common user actions. Use pre-built templates for enrollment, registration, username/password reset, and other identity operations.

Leverage mobile multifactor authentication

Use mobile devices for two-step verification with a customizable authenticator app that delivers secure mobile push notifications.
