Almost every mobile app needs to have authentication. Building a secure, scalable, and reliable authentication system and interface from scratch is a pain. Fortunately, the FirebaseUI Authentication library makes it easy to tackle this problem.
In this day and age, mobile apps need to have authentication for increased security. In this course, Android FirebaseUI Authentication with Kotlin, you will gain the ability to confidently add a variety of authentication options to your Android app. First, you will learn how to implement multiple different providers such as Google, Twitter, and Facebook. Next, you will discover how to create an anonymous experience in your app that allows users to explore key features before they decide to create an account. Finally, you will explore how to enable your users to manage their own accounts. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of the FirebaseUI Authentication Library needed to create a seamless sign-in and account management experience in your Android apps.
Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Markus Neuhoff, and welcome to my course, Android FirebaseUI Authentication with Kotlin. I'm an Android developer with a passion for creating excellent apps. Firebase Authentication is completely free to use for an unlimited number of users for every authentication method except for phone sign-in, which has a generous free tier. The library has many popular sign-in providers to choose from. This course is a broad look at the wide variety of functionality provided by the FirebaseUI Authentication library, and no previous experience with Firebase is required. Some of the major topics we'll cover include adding social providers such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter, supporting anonymous authentications flows, and enabling user account management. By the end of this course, you will have a solid understanding of how to add authentication to your Android app. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Android Studio and Kotlin, but these aren't required. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into Firebase for Android with courses on Firestore, Firebase Storage, and Firebase Analytics. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn authentication for Android with the Android FirebaseUI Authentication with Kotlin course, at Pluralsight.
