Enable Users to Log In with Their Email, Phone Number, or Any Identifier You Choose

In just a few clicks, you can deploy login pages that simplify how external users log in to your community. With the Login Discovery feature, you can let your external users identify themselves using something other than a username, such as a phone number. Instead of a password, they can verify their identity with a code sent to their email or mobile device. And, if your org is enabled with multiple Identity Providers (IdPs), login is a one-step process—users bypass verification altogether.

Where: This feature is available in all communities, accessed through Lightning Experience, Salesforce Classic, and all versions of the mobile app. This feature is available in Enterprise, Essentials, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.

How: Build Login Discovery login pages on the Login & Registration page of the Administration Workspace. Choose the Login Discovery Page login type, which generates a login handler that you extend in Apex. You can locate the login handler from the Setup Apex Classes page. Its name begins with AutocreatedDiscLoginHandler.
