Social login and registration In a study conducted by Blue research, Janrain found that 86% of users are very likely to leave a site when prompted to create a new traditional account (username and password). Janrain Capture eliminates the need for a new username and password by authenticating users with existing 3rd party and social identities like Facebook, Google, Yahoo!, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. Janrain also found that 42% of users prefer to use Facebook for social registration. However, with support for more than 20 identity providers, customers can meet the needs of the remain 58% of new users. Pre-populated forms 88% of users admit to providing false registration info. Capture seamlessly pre-fills registration fields to streamline registration for users and provide customers with highly accurate, rich social profile data. Traditional account support and mapping Capture supports existing accounts with side-by-side social and traditional logins as well as the option for customers to offer traditional accounts to new users. Account mapping allows users to map a 3rd party identity to their legacy account resulting in a one-click return login experience for users and rich social profile data for customers. Personalized, one-click return experience Capture personalizes and simplifies the user’s return experience by welcoming the user back by name and prompting them to login with their previously chosen identity provider for a one-click return login. Email verification and in-line form field validation Capture features an email verification flow to ensure that all user profiles contain an active email account. In-line form field validation further improves the quality of user profile data with field format rules and unique username availability and suggestions. Rich customization options Capture registration enables customers to match registration screens to their site’s look and feel via CSS and API. Registration forms can configured to collect any definable field for storage in the Capture database and with conditional, progressive, and multi-forms, users see highly relevant registration screens based on user origin, activity, site, etc. Self-service account management Capture provides users and customers alike with reliable, self-service features for password reset and account deactivation or deletion. In addition, users can access a profile management form to add additional identity providers, update their user profile, or change their on-site privacy settings.
