Social Login

Too many passwords? In Social Media Management, you can choose to authenticate yourself via one of many social media networks instead of having to manually enter or reset your Social Media Management password each time.

In this article, find out more about logging in with your social media accounts and how to get set up.

What is Social Login?

In Social Media Management, there are a few different login methods available, including: password, Single Sign-On (SSO), additional Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), and Social Login.

When you choose to authenticate yourself via Social Login, you will have the option of logging into Social Media Management with your Google, Facebook, X (Twitter), or LinkedIn personal profile credentials instead of using your password. Along with having to remember less passwords, social login can save you some time if you’re already logged into the applicable network on the same browser.

But first, you will need to successfully log into Social Media Management and set up your social login from within Social Media Management following the steps below.

Setting Up Social Login

Any user can set up social login while logged into Social Media Management.

  1. Click on your profile image in the bottom-left corner of the platform and select Profile details.
  2. Under the My Profile section in Settings, click on the Social Login tab and click Connect to the right of the applicable network.blobid1__1_.png
  3. When the pop up for the native network appears, log in. If you are already logged in to the network, click Continue.
  4. When the pop up closes, check that the applicable network now shows as Connected under Status.

At any time, you can revisit the Social login tab and click Disconnect to the right of any already-connected network.

Logging in with Social Login

When you have set up social login, you will be able to log in using your applicable social media credentials instead of your Social Media Management password, though you can always choose to use your password instead. For the full guide to different methods of logging in, visit our Logging Into Social Media Management article.


If you have set up two-factor authentication (2FA), this will always be required in addition to the successful login via the social network. If you have set up SSO, you will be required to always log in via SSO instead of social login.
