Create Google Logon Details

In Fortix any user that wants to use the system must be identified. Fortix uses a local database for the users’ accounts and credentials.

Because people find the sign-up and account creation tedious which often results in abandoned shopping carts which mean the loss of business and sales the alternative is to delegate user authentication and provisioning to a dedicated, purpose-built service, called an Identity Provider (IdP). Google, Facebook and Twitter, where many people on the internet are registered, offer such IdP services for their users. Your business can greatly streamline user onboarding by integrating login with these IdPs. This article explains how to setup the Google Log In Details in Fortix.
