Forem allows you to authenticate using the Forem Passport service. Enabling this authentication provider is highly encouraged in order to benefit from the many Forem Ecosystem integrations (i.e. mobile apps).

  1. Create an account in
  2. Send an email to requesting access to the Creator Tools
  3. Use the Forem Creator Tools to add your site to get the Key and Secret credentials.
  4. Enable the Forem Authentication provider in the admin dashboard
