Since 2013, Login with Amazon has provided an OAuth 2.0 protocol authentication system that allows websites and mobile apps to securely connect with more than 250 million Amazon customers.
Now we’ve streamlined the login experience for those customers, adding new support for single sign-on across multiple platforms. We’ve also introduced new plugins to make it easier than ever to use Login with Amazon from your website. These new features are part of our ongoing efforts to bring more value to our developer community.
Single Sign-On for Multiple Platforms
We’re proud to announce that, with the release of the latest Login with Amazon SDK for iOS (v.2.1.0), single sign-on is now supported across web, Fire tablet, Android, and iOS applications. Login with Amazon provides a single sign-on experience by automatically authenticating customers using the Amazon account they’re already signed into.
Customers who click Login with Amazon on your website are automatically signed in if they’re also signed into Amazon.com in the same browser session. On Fire tablets, Login with Amazon uses the Amazon account registered to the device for authentication. On Android and iOS, the account signed into the Amazon Mobile Shopping app is used for authentication. See Introducing 1-Click Sign In on our website for more information.
