Authenticating users with Google

Keeping a secret with Google

(Note: This video discusses using Google authentication directly. You might be interested in Anvil’s powerful built-in user authentication.)

Often, there are parts of an app we don’t want everyone to access.

In this video, we’ll show you how to let users log into your app with their Google accounts. You can use the user’s identity to determine what they are and are not allowed to do.

We use Anvil’s server modules to write code that cannot be tampered with by our users. (In this case, we want to make sure they don’t bypass the authentication check). Read more about server modules in the Anvil reference manual.

You can do a lot more with Anvil and Google services. Find out more in the Google section of the Anvil reference manual.
