For account administrators

One of the biggest friction points for using any online software is creating and remembering another password. Passwords are just enough of a nuisance to put a damper on signing up, taking, or checking in on a course — or just putting it off for later.

Now, you can allow any member of your account to sign in with their existing Apple or Google account in just one tap! Not only does this save time, but it also comes with all the security protections Apple and Google provide without having to invent or re-use yet another password.
If your learners prefer not to use Apple or Google to sign in, they can still sign in with an email and password or enter just their email address to receive a secure "magic" sign-in link that signs them in with a single tap or click.

with Apple and Google is included in all plans.

How to set up Apple and Google Logins

As an Administrator, you can opt into Apple and/or Google logins under Dashboard > Account Settings.

Special Note: if members choose to Sign In with Apple, they have an option to "Hide my email." If they choose this option, Apple generates a random email address where they'll still be able to receive messages sent from within your Pathwright account. However, they will not receive emails at this address that are sent from other sources (for instance, a separate newsletter sent from an email service like Mailchimp).

How instant sign-in works

Your sign-in page is automatically branded with your account icon and brand color, which you can edit from your Account Settings. The sign-in page will prompt users to enter the email address they wish to use to sign in.

If Apple and Google login options are enabled, then the additional options will appear to "Continue with Apple" or "Continue with Google." The first time one of these options is used, the user will be prompted to link their account. On subsequent visits, the sign-in process will be instant.

How instant sign-up works

If no member exists under under the email address entered by the user, the user may be prompted to create an account by entering their first and last name. By default, a password will not be required. The user may optionally create a password later under their Profile Settings.

If you prefer to always require users to create passwords at sign-up, you can optionally toggle this on in your Account Settings.

ℹ️ The option to create a new account is only displayed if you have courses that are public in your account. If all of your courses are invite-only or members only, you will need to provide prospective members with an invitation to your account or an invitation to a particular cohort before they will be able to create a new login. Learn more about course visibility settings here.

If an account already exists under the email address that was entered, the user will be shown an error message and can click on "Already have an account? Sign In" to continue.

Users can select "Sign in without a password" to have a magic sign-in link sent to their email address. One tap or click on the link in their email will sign them in.

Alternately, they can enter the 6 digit code included in the email to easily sign in on a different device.

If preferred, users can enter their existing Pathwright password to log in, or click the "Forgot password?" link to reset their password.

For accounts using SSO

If your account has a custom SSO (Single Sign On) method enabled, this will continue to work as before. Your account may have the Pathwright login disabled, in which case, that option will remain hidden for your account. Learn more about SSO here.

You can now toggle the Pathwright login on and off from your Account Settings. To disable the Pathwright sign-In, you must first enable at least one other Sign-In option (Apple, Google, or custom SSO).
