Hi, @chris here, FB social auth, works well on iMac, but not as impressive on iPhone where logging on to FB with the FB app does not allow seems "auto log" on tagbirds.com, and logging on to FB website in Chrome or Safari browser is problematic because I seem to get "auto logged off" of FB within a few minutes or an hour.
So maybe social auth / oauth can still attract new users, making it easy to almost instantly signup? Still, sounds like most users may not care, just an extra minute or 2 to create a new account and select a unique password. But if django-allauth makes it easy to set up social auth, might as well try it, especially during beta for a website (e.g. tagbirds) before it truly becomes popular.
It looks like you need to avoid creating & using iphone shortcut icon (on your iphone desktop) for tagbirds website will block social auth.
Maybe any desktop “shortcut” icon is sandboxed from any other process on your iphone such that the shortcut icon has no access to the secret token / key for oauth stored with your browser?
How iPhone “bookmarks” work: I think you must use Safari (native browser for iPhone and Apple products), via the “Safari app” on your iPhone; select bookmark e.g. “tagbirds.com”, go to site, just select “GitHub” to use GitHub social auth for tagbirds.com; you should only have to enter your GitHub creds one time only; in future, when using the same physical iPhone you, just select “GitHub” again and you should be automatically logged in / authenticated (no entering of GitHub creds again.
But not sure it django-allauth “auto-logs” correctly like this for Safari bookmark. Works that way for Chome/google app, but chime/google app bookmarks are very hard for me to use and/or understand?
