iOS - linking a registered user to social accounts

Hello. I want to allow users to register via the normal backendless user registration process, and then connect their social accounts (fb, twitter, google & insta) so that they can login via these social accounts as well. I read the easy fb login doc and others but I couldn't find anything about linking user accounts with their social accounts. Any pointers would be helpful! Thanks.

Hi Vladimir,

Thanks for your response, I've been waiting, any pointers on how to do it? I need to deliver the app to my client.

Hi Zeba,

Sorry for waiting!

Yes you can implement merge between simple user account (email/password) and social account. But there are a few important points:

1) In Users table field "email" must be "Identity" (by default)

2) email in social account must be the same with user email in Users table

So, for example:

You have user with email "foo@bar.com" in your app, he can logout from the app and then login with Google/Fb/Twitter, and if his social account has email "foo@bar.com", this two accounts will be merged
