Social media SSO changes coming in Vanilla 2.8 (February 6)
In Vanilla 2.8, we are making a few changes to our SSO (single sign-on) offerings in Vanilla.
- Facebook & Twitter sign-in options will remain in Vanilla and are still fully supported for use on your sites.
- OpenID is being removed. Its use is extremely low, few major providers remain, and it continues to have security issues.
- Google+ is being removed. This is due to Google ending support for it.
We plan to release a Google Sign In replacement for Google+, but it may not be included in the 2.8 release. We'll announce our final decision with the release on February 6.
