LoginRadius is based on the concept of OpenID/OpenAuthorization and allows users to log into third party websites using their existing accounts on popular networks such as Facebook, Google, Twitter, etc., thus eliminating forgotten usernames and passwords.
It certainly is possible to implement OpenID/OAuth on your own, but integrating and maintaining all of them is a huge pain, which is where LoginRadius comes in! We do all the hard work for you in the back end so that all you have to do is follow a couple of easy steps in order to add social login functionality to your website. Currently LoginRadius enables social login through 20+ of the most popular ID providers worldwide.
Essentially LoginRadius acts as a bridge between you and the ID providers by authenticating users on your website through the providers.. During this process, LoginRadius also fetches user profile data which is available to you both in its raw form and as Social Analytics, an additional feature offered by LoginRadius that breaks down your user base into easy to understand graphs based on criteria such as age, gender, and location.
