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).

Better integration with the /admin dashboard is currently under development but in the mean time you will be able to enable the Forem Authentication provider with the following steps:

  1. Create an account in
  2. Use the Forem Creator Setup to create new credentials for your Forem site.
    • You will receive the Key and Secret credentials for your site.
    • The instance logo will take a few moments to sync.
  3. Enable the Forem Authentication provider in your Forem admin dashboard.
