When a user registers for a Backendless app, it is quite common to make sure he provided a valid email address. Typically this is done by sending a URL to the user's email address and ask him to follow the link. Once the link is opened in a browser, it serves as a confirmation of a valid email address. This is rather standard functionality of an application's backend.
Backendless makes it very easy to configure this behavior for any application powered by Backendless platform.
To configure e-mail confirmations for an app:
- Login to Backendless console, select an app and click the Users icon.
- Click the Registration menu.
- Locate the Require Email Confirmation section and switch it to ON. Once enabled, Backendless will send an email to the users who register to use the app. The e-mail contains a link which the user must click to confirm his e-mail address. When the e-mail confirmation is turned on, newly registered users cannot login until they confirm their e-mail address.
