The main differences between Social Login and the SSO(Single sign On) Module are give below –
Account Type Supported
The Social Login module supports social networking accounts like – Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn, and Instagram using which the customers can sign up to the Magento 2 website. Thus, the customers need not to manage the login ID and password for the Magento 2 website separately.
But using Single Sign On module, the user can enter the login credentials in the third-party application like Uvdesk, Erp system, etc and be logged in to Magento 2 store simultaneously.
- Account Creation
Using the social networking accounts, when a customer goes for registering himself at the Magento store and the customer does not exists in Magento db, then an account gets created using the social networking account.
While in the case of SSO, a customer must have the account/credentials for both the third-part application as well as Magento so as to perform a Single Sign On.
Sign In & Sign Up
Using the Social login module, customers will be able to Sign In/Sign Up to the Magento webstore using their social networking account.
While in the case of SSO module, the customer will only be able to login to the Magento webstore using their third-party application credentials.
