###How does it Work?

Once SocialAuth Android is integrated into your application, following is the authentication process:

  • User opens the app and chooses the provider to request the authentication by using SocialAuth-android library.
  • User is redirected to Facebook, Twitter or other provider's login site by library where they enter their credentials.
  • Upon successful login, provider asks for user’s permission to share their basic data with your app.
  • Once user accepts it,On successful authentication the library redirects user to app.
  • Now user can call SocialAuth Android library to get information about user profile, gets contacts list or share status to friends.
