Social Login refers to using existing account information from social media services, such as Google or Facebook, to sign into a third-party website, instead of creating a new account that is specific to that website. Oracle APEX introduced support for social login, based on OAuth2, in version 18.1. With APEX 19.1, OAuth2-based authentication has been extended to logging into the APEX Builder itself.
