Sign in a user through OTP

Log in a user using magiclink or a one-time password (OTP).

  • Requires either an email or phone number.
  • This method is used for passwordless sign-ins where a OTP is sent to the user's email or phone number.
  • If the user doesn't exist, signInWithOtp() will signup the user instead. To restrict this behavior, you can set shouldCreateUser in SignInWithPasswordlessCredentials.options to false.
  • If you're using an email, you can configure whether you want the user to receive a magiclink or a OTP.
  • If you're using phone, you can configure whether you want the user to receive a OTP.
  • The magic link's destination URL is determined by the SITE_URL.
  • See redirect URLs and wildcards to add additional redirect URLs to your project.
  • Magic links and OTPs share the same implementation. To send users a one-time code instead of a magic link, modify the magic link email template to include {{ .Token }} instead of {{ .ConfirmationURL }}.
  • See our Twilio Phone Auth Guide for details about configuring WhatsApp sign in.
