Are you looking for a way to set a password after creating an account with Google? It may seem like a daunting task, but don’t worry, we’re here to help. In this article, we will guide you through the process step by step.

Creating a Secondary Database Connection

The first step is to create a new database connection. Follow these instructions:

  1. Go to the Auth0 Dashboard.
  2. Navigate to “Connections” and then “Database.”
  3. Click on “Create DB Connection” and give it a name, such as “secondary-connection.”
  4. Configure the database settings according to your requirements.

Updating Your Application Settings

Next, you need to update your application settings. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. In the Auth0 Dashboard, navigate to “Applications” and select your application.
  2. Under the “Connections” tab, enable both the social provider (e.g., Google) and the “secondary-connection” you created in the previous step.

Implementing User-Initiated Account Linking

To allow users to link their social login with a password-based account, follow these steps:

  1. Refer to the Auth0 documentation on client-side implementation of user-initiated account linking: User-Initiated Account Linking: Client-Side Implementation.
  2. This will enable users to link their social login with a password-based account.

Adding a “Reset Password” or “Add Password” Option to Your Website

To provide users with the option to reset their password or add a password, follow these instructions:

  1. Create a UI element, such as a button or link, for users to reset their password or add a password.
  2. When a user clicks the “Reset Password” or “Add Password” option, redirect them to the Auth0-hosted password reset/change page for the “secondary-connection.”
  3. Construct a URL like https://${your_domain}/dbconnections/change_password?email=${user_email}&connection=${connection_name}&client_id=${client_id}.
  4. Replace ${your_domain}, ${user_email}, ${connection_name}, and ${client_id} with your actual values.
  5. Make sure the user is logged in with a social provider before redirecting them to this URL, so you can pre-fill their email address.

Handling the Password Reset/Add Flow

Now it’s time to handle the password reset/add flow. Follow these steps:

  1. Auth0 will send the user an email with a link to reset or add their password.
  2. Once the user completes the process, their social and email/password accounts will be linked in Auth0, and they can log in using either method.

By following these steps, users who initially sign in with a social login will be able to reset their password or add a password to their account using Auth0.
