Security is hard. When we build chat applications, we want to ensure that the application allows only registered users to access the platform. We want to be able to manage multiple accounts, see their online activity, and have a dashboard to streamline incoming data. The initial step to ensuring all these factors is to create a user registration form and this is where user authentication comes into the picture.
Security isn’t just hard, it’s also hard to implement. What if there’s a solution that could handle this developmental hassle partially for you?
By the end of this tutorial, you will have learned how to implement these functions:
- Perform Authentication
- Create a New User
- Create a User Login with Auth Key
- Create a User Login with Auth Token
- User Logout Function
