Social login and Confirm email

This discussion is related to the Social Login addon.

When a user subscribes to my forum,, using SocialLogin, his role is set to confirm email.
However, I set Email Required to no. Confirmation would be impossible, since no confirmation email is sent, while it is sent to users who subscribed through the regular form.
What should I do?


  • Hi Ragdoll,

    When you set Email Required to No that means which providers are not give email address for those random email will be generated. Also, this functionality is different from regular form functionality which requires confirmation email as you are not sure about User email. In case of Social login, social id provider provides you an already verified email which helps.
    If you don't want to send confirmation email then you can change user role.

    Hope this answers your question.
