Discussion on: What sign-in methods do you use in your apps?

While I don't get to use it as much as I'd like to, I prefer identity providers like Okta and Auth0. They can pool users from various sources (Azure AD b2c or b2b, Facebook , Google, your own) and expose a variety of signin methods (standalone or with additional confirmation). Bonus: they are adaptive based on user behavior (eg: you can allow simple user pass or social but if the user logs in from different geographical region or network , you can add 2fa for the initial login)

I agree, leave the integration to the people (i.e. auth0) who know what they are doing. Outsourcing the pains of auth is one of the best things ;-)

As a dev I would like dev providers (gitlab, github); though when creating a public app that may not be dev oriented; own-user-pass/google/fb/ms/linkedin are the most common used.
