About Auth0

Auth0 is a cloud-based identity management platform, which helps small to large businesses provide secure data access to users and detect anomalies or password leaks during logins. Features include single sign-on, multi-factor authentication, account linking, and log retention and streaming.

Developers can create universal or embedded login flows to authenticate employees via a central domain or within the domain of the page. Using Auth0's dashboard, administrators can add or delete users, handle password resets, view event logs, and provision/de-provision accounts. Businesses can process password-less logins by validating users through one-time passwords (OTPs), push notifications and biometric sensors.

Solid Authorization Platform

The Auth0 system has provided our company a solid authorization foundation to build our various external-facing applications. With the variety of Auth0 features, we have been able to integrate an increasing number of applications from companies we have acquired. From web applications to system processes to desktop applications, Auth0 has given us the means to centralize all of our product offerings and provide our customers a consistent unified experience.

Pros

Administration site is fairly easy to understand. Metadata along with Rules and Hooks allow for flexibility for token generation . Multiple ways to authenticate (internal and external user data sources, SSO, OAuth2.0 workflow support, etc...) The active developer community is helpful to resolve issues, and if we can't find an issue there, the Support staff are very responsive

Cons

Management of source and deployment of code and configurations across tenants is not very good. Auth0 admin users can have either very limited access or have global access to everything. We would like to have the ability to limit certain functionality to sets of admin users. We were charged for each Machine-To-Machine call (client-credentials workflow), so we needed to be careful how we implemented.

Bram's review

I have chosen auth0 for mazda europe several years ago and I have never regretted it. We have recently switched and moved away from Auth0 due to an alignment at Mazda Global. We are still rolling out Auth0 for the B2B side now and are very happy so far.

Pros

The ease of use Practice what you preach at Auth0, so I know it works :-) Automated deployment and API use possible Quick onboarding of new security specs and standards Auth0 is certified on several security levels Very good uptime and performance

Cons

Domain name support (using our own domain name) didn't work out The language support in ie. emails etc is not great

Reasons for Choosing Auth0

The high level of self service possible and focus on customer facing integration (social provider connections).

Horrible

Users management

Pros

The Api is nice when it work , the ui is nice as well - when it work. The search was good as well - when it worked.

Cons

Their system is not stable, they treat customer not good at all. It's been 7 days since their system stopped working. It's been 7 full days where i have no business because of Auth0. It's been 2 days since Monday afternoon PST, the time were they said on their email last Thursday, that this bug should be fixed. They forced my to pay them money to get my data back faster, but still even after paying them - no one answer my calls or email. Please, do yourself a favor - do not start your business with Auth0!

Developers friendly

I'll keep using in my projects for long time. All plans quota are enough to start for any company.

Pros

Use theirs code sample in many languages to start a project faster or add to your existing code with a few lines of codes, add credentials and start using it in less than 15 minutes.

Cons

Sometimes documentation would be hard to understand but when you got it... You got it.

Best authentication system ever!

Authentication is crucial of every SaaS product. Auth0 helped us to bootstrap in days!

Pros

Easy to use! Excellent tutorials! Excellent documentation! A lot of identity and social providers! MFA, Anomaly detection! Reasonable price!

Cons

Building a multi-tenant application is not really convenient. Some missing features in the management console: Search in applications or databases.

Reasons for Choosing Auth0

Excellent onboarding and at the time they were the best choice!

Auth0 Rocks, big time!

All in all, I'd say Auth0 has saved us AT LEAST 10 Man Years of development effort (to date) at a cost of a few dozen $ per month. Fantastic ROI.

Pros

Auth0 is an extraordinarily versatile SaaS. We use it for all our IAM needs across multiple and diverse applications and use cases. We use a whole range of Auth0 features, and have Auth0 integrated with a whole bunch of other 3rd party software solutions that we use. Never seen any problems (suchbas outages etc.), although setting up some features can be complex.

Cons

I have one small gripe. We use Google as our "Social Login" provider, and use Auth0 Rules to allow only users from authorised domains to authenticate. This works, but not perfectly. Users who authenticate with their personal gmail.com addresses (happens inadvertently all the time when users are logged in to their personal gmail accounts) are blocked by tbe Rules, but don't get a meaningful error message.

Get your product out fast

It has been an extremely pleasant run, because we have had to think very little about them.

Pros

We made a bet on Auth0 to hasten the Go Live date for our SaaS product, while we build manufacturing ERP, we got to focus on manufacturing while CIAM came from Auth0.

Cons

Some parts of configuration options and code examples are confusing to navigate, but there is a system, once you get used to it...

Reasons for Choosing Auth0

Looking back, I would say that they had the best SEO, available materials were easy and spot on for our use case, we started with Auth0 and compared those aspects and pricing with others on the list. We did not find anything worth redoing the whole learning and prototyping phases so we just carried on...

Perfect not just for authentication and authorization but also Customer Support!

The authentication and authorization part is something you just set up and then it works. But I use Auth0 on a frequent basis for customer support. I can see the necessary information about a user, their sign-up and log-in activities, data providers, password management, and such. This allows me to more easily and quickly answer the questions of users and guide them through a process.

Pros

Auth0 is mainly a solution for authentication and authorization. And it does what it promises in that aspect, but I also find it very helpful when it comes to customer support because I can see a lot of crucial information about user activity.

Cons

I haven't had any problems with Auth0. I am happy with the functionality they offer and wouldn't change it.

Fast Implementation that Works!

Excellent sales experience with hands on experts that assisted with initial configuration. First class support organization. Excellent product and experience overall.

Pros

Implementation time was far less than anticipated. The services are well documented and everything just works as expected. Support has been very good and the detailed examples are helpful. Excellent product.

Cons

Managing multiple tenants is a little complex without features to clone or compare tenants which makes managing multiple environments more difficult.

Reasons for Choosing Auth0

Ease of use. Implementation time.

Solves critical business problems but has big gaps for support teams

Answers from support come slow and always involve telling me to use an API, or do all this work to install a plugin. The support is *really* slow, and the basic feature gaps sub-standard for the $160k/year we pay. I get that you have all these features that are enticing for Engineers, but you need to focus on the people who get stuck using this product every day --- once the Engineers have gone away to slay another problem.

Pros

Easy to use UI that allows me to answer 80% of questions about why a client's SAML integration isn't working, or why a specific user is having trouble logging in.

Cons

I'm a business user, not an Engineer. Every time I ask a question to Auth0 support about "How do I do X?", the answer is "Oh, easy, just use this API" - I don't want to learn how to program against an API to do basic tasks like export all the active Connections.

Expensive for us but suits our needs

We are able to store all personal data about our users in their auth0 profile, and use it in our app.

Pros

Easy to integrate with standard libraries and the Auth0 team was very helpful with the initial setup. Auth0 was flexible enough to implement our very specific use cases.

Cons

The pricing doesn't really reflect our activity, we are missing key features for our customers like the ability to choose from email/password or SSO on the lock. Management API is too limited, especially for the exports and imports. Calls to the Auth0 API sometimes take a lot of time and are slowing our app.

Identity services need to be secure and keep high availability

They have prompt and responsive account reps. They provide support services worth paying for.

Pros

Our industry provides multiple services to our membership, and we need a reliable and performant solution. Auth0 provides that.

Cons

The product line is available for so many different platforms that navigating the support site takes some time to find the right page.

Reasons for Choosing Auth0

Identity. Seamless login to third party sites.

You have no reason to ever build your own authentication system again

Authentication as a service. Security that is done by professionals.

Pros

Auth0 does a fantastic job of taking all those hard, risky and tedious parts of making your own authentication system off your plate. Developers literally have no reason to create their own authentication system any more, it's all provided by Auth0.

Cons

The docs could be clearer. It's very easy to get confused or lost. They could use slightly more user-friendly language in their documentation and management UI. Could have more/clearer examples of best practices and common usages/implementations.

Identity Management shortcut

Overall, easy to use, fast to implement, and great user management dashboard makes it a rather compelling experience.

Pros

Absolutely love how easy it is to take care of all things identity. It's a real shortcut: they take care of managing users, security, accounts, and more. Saved me a ton of time.

Cons

Some of the feature implementation code is a bit convoluted, but nothing crazy. Support is available as well, and they know their product well enough to get you through whatever blockers you've got.

Reasons for Switching to Auth0

I wanted to streamline registration, authentication and authorization in a way that saves time. Passport.js is great, but with growth you may need a more comprehensive solution.

The customer service and responsiveness has been great.

Pros

I was onboarded to this software only a few months ago and it has been extremely easy to learn. It's very intuitive and takes me no time at all to find what I'm looking for. It also manages our alerts which has been super helpful.

Cons

There isn't much to note here for me. I primarily use the software to track stats and manage users, and these features work perfectly fine.
