IFTTT offers a couple different social sign-in methods in addition to the standard email and password login. There's a few things to be aware of when using this method, read on for more.
Does using social sign-on allow IFTTT to post on my Google or Facebook accounts?
No. This is just for added convenience when logging in to IFTTT.
Can I still login using my username and password?
Absolutely. New users signing in with social sign-in for the first time still have a password, it's just randomly generated. The only time you may need to use it is if you're connecting IFTTT to a service that doesn't play well with social sign-on. You can update your password at any time by resetting it.
Can I still use two-step authentication with social sign-in?
Of course! If you have it set up, you’ll be prompted to enter your two-factor code when you sign in with Google or Facebook.
I already have an IFTTT account. Can I use social sign-on?
You sure can, just make sure the email on your IFTTT account matches the one on your Google or Facebook account. Otherwise you may have an extra IFTTT account on your hands. If everything looks good, go to your account settings and scroll to Linked accounts to set up social sign-on.
Why do I still have to connect Google and Facebook services separately?
Using Google or Facebook's social sign-in method for your IFTTT account doesn't give IFTTT the same types of permissions needed for any Google or Facebook services to function. You'll still need to connect those individually.
