What does it mean to “Continue with Google” or “Continue with Facebook”?
You can create an IFTTT account, or log into an existing one using your Google or Facebook account (if the emails for those accounts match the email of your IFTTT account). This doesn’t give IFTTT permission to post on those accounts.
Do I have to use social sign-in or sign-on?
No, it's just another option for you. You can always use your email to sign up for an IFTTT account, or sign in to a new one.
Where can I use social sign-in on IFTTT?
Web, iOS, and Android all support creating or signing into an account using Facebook or Google.
If you connect to IFTTT from within one of our partner’s mobile apps, you won’t be able to use social sign-in. Use your IFTTT email and password to sign in.
I already have an IFTTT account. How do I use social sign on?
- If you’re logged into your IFTTT account, you can link Facebook or Google in account settings.
- If you’re not logged in and and your Facebook or Google account email matches your IFTTT account email, you’ll get a prompt asking you to link your account by entering your IFTTT account password.
- If the email you use for IFTTT is different from the emails you use for Facebook or Google, when you click "Continue with Google" or "Continue with Facebook" you'll be creating a brand new IFTTT account.
How does social sign-on affect the Facebook and Google services on IFTTT?
- If you use social sign-in with Facebook or Google and want to use one of those services on IFTTT, you’ll still need to connect your account on the service page.
How does two-factor authentication work with social sign-in?
If you have it set up, you’ll be prompted to enter your two-factor code when you sign-in with Google or Facebook.
If I use Google or Facebook to sign up for a new IFTTT account, do I have a password?
You do, but it’s randomly generated. You can update it at any time by resetting your password.
You don’t have to know your password, though — you’ll be able to use your Facebook or Google account to sign in to IFTTT as long as they remain linked.
