Firebase phone authentication

Posted on by Igor Khomenko

As announced at Google I/O, Digits is being replaced with Firebase phone authentication. To continue authenticating users, you need to upgrade to Firebase by September 30, 2017. After this date, your users will be unable to authenticate their device if they try to sign in with Digits. In addition, app backends will not be able to verify existing user tokens using Digits endpoint.

Today we present our new authentication method – via Firebase phone number. It is intended to use it now instead of deprecated Twitter Digits.

This is available from iOS SDK 2.9.3 and Android SDK 3.3.5 . For Web you do not need to upgrade, you already have it in your current version.
