Users authentication with phone number

Hello,

My team and I are working on a project and we have chosen Backendless for the backend. But I am currently facing a problem.

I want to know if it is possible to authenticate user by another field (for exemple : phone number ) rather then the email.
I have added a new field called phone_number in Users table and I want the user to login with phone_number and password.
Is it possible ? If no can I, for instance, create my own tokens based authentication… ?

We are open to any other kind of solution…

Thanks in advance.

Hi Thierno,

Welcome to the community and thank you for choosing Backendless.
For phone-based authentication, we offer integration with Twilio. Please see the following link for the description of the capabilities:

Please let me know if this would work for you.

Regards,
Mark
