How to require email confirmation for user registration

by on January 16, 2015

When a user registers for your app, it is quite common to make sure they provided a valid email address. Typically this is done by sending a URL to the user’s email address and asking them to follow the link. Once the link is opened in a browser, it serves as a confirmation of a valid email address. This is rather standard functionality for an application’s backend. Backendless makes it very easy to configure this behavior for any application powered by our platform. To configure email confirmations for your app:

  1. Login to Backendless Console, select an app and click the Users icon.
  2. Click the User Registration menu.
  3. Locate the Require Email Confirmation section and switch it to ON. Once enabled, Backendless will send an email to the users who register to use your app. The email contains a link that the user must click to confirm their email address. When the email confirmation is turned on, newly registered users cannot log in until they confirm their email address.
