Strengthening Connections with Social Sign-On
by Community Gaming in Features · 2023-08-02

Last month, Community Gaming introduced passwordless login to our platform. Today, we’re improving our sign-up process with social sign-on! From here on out, Community Gaming accounts created with a connected Google or Discord account benefit from a seamless one-step sign-in process. Curious to learn more? Let’s dive in!

What is Social Sign-On?

Social Sign-On, also known as Social Login, is a user authentication method that allows individuals to log into applications and websites using their existing social media accounts. Instead of managing multiple usernames and passwords for individual websites, you’ll only need one account to access an ecosystem of connected services.

Introducing social sign-on to Community Gaming means that anyone with a Google, Discord or Twitter account can access esports tournaments with the click of a button.

How Do I Use Social Sign-On?

Taking advantage of social sign-on is quick and easy using the following steps:

  1. Head to our sign-up and login page.
  2. Look for the option to sign-up or login using your Google or Discord account and click on your social media account of choice!
  3. Sign-in on the social media platform of your choice, if you are not already logged in on your device.
  4. Read the terms and conditions of using social sign-on with Community Gaming. If you are comfortable granting access, click on the “authorize,” “continue,” or “allow access” button.

Congratulations! You now have a Community Gaming account linked to your social media account of choice.

All users have control over what information they share and can revoke these permissions at any time.

No. If you created your account by using social sign-on options, you must always sign in through that social platform.

Can I link multiple social media accounts?

We encourage you to link as many social media accounts as you wish! However, you will only be able to sign-in with the social media account you originally used to create your account.

Social sign-on is taking longer than expected. Should I be concerned?

Not at all! To give our users the possibility to sign up through a social platform provider, while at the same time giving them access to a blockchain wallet, Community Gaming platform is doing several things in background while you're signing up. Be patient - it'll pay off!
