We are excited to introduce a new method of signing up/logging in with Apple Login.
Following the success of Google One Tap and the increase in members to our forums, we're looking to enable Apple login as a quick and easy way to sign up for iOS users.

For this first iteration, a button to prompt Apple login has been integrated in the Log In, Register and Join the Discussion windows.

Once selected, a user or guest will be redirected to the Apple sign in portal where they can securely complete their sign in.

If it's a user's first time creating an account with their Apple ID, they will then be redirected to pick a user name and agree to the Terms of Service.

To try out the functionality yourselves, we will be enabling it on focusrsclub.com today. I'll respond on this thread once it is live.

We are also aiming to launch to our pilot sites below tomorrow, June 2nd.

gamingfora.com
2coolfishing.com
avsforum.com
dootalk.com

Will keep everyone posted on progress with the target dates. As always, please let us know if you have any questions or feedback!

Hopefully the folks with Apple ID will participate in the forums - unlike 99% of the Google One Tap registrants. I guess more eyes the more $$$ are raked in from advertising, but without growing activity on the forum the forum eventually dies.

Silly question. Is Apple Login available for those of us who are already members or will that muck up things? Granted, Escape City isn't on your sites where Apple Login is utilized yet.

Um, Apple INVENTED the one tap login. Its revolutionary.
They also invented reducing battery life for older devices without owners consent, or knowledge.
I used to be a big fan, but that and other issues has lessened my liking for their core business.

I agree with the concerns above.

More than one account generated.
Participation.

G1T most active users have by far been members with duplicate accounts and were active on old (normal) account.

I support trying to engage a wider audience, but does not mean that I have not got concerns.

Thanks for heads up @Tharshika G (y)

You will create a duplicate account. Just like you would if you used Google One Tap.

Existing members are supposed to utilize the hard-to-find Connected Accounts option.

Not that hard but in any case for those who don't know where to look, go into edit and "extra" where you can see where they came from (initially at least). This is for a brand new member who signed up through FB

@Mike Lang , can you post a pic of what a member might see?

Presumably there will be an additional Apple setting once it branches out.

Can't say what happens though. ie does it merge whatever into original, FB, G1T or FB.

G&T needed.

You should be able to go through Connected Accounts as mentioned here to link it to your existing account.

Folks I apologize in our attempt to roll this out to our first pilot site we ran into some bugs which we are working through 😓 I'll keep you posted with new target dates.

@Tharshika G , no worries on my end. I was just curious.

Maybe once it is all settled I should add an FAQ regarding this for our existing members.
It needs to be spelled out & luddite-proof on the join/login screen itself or they'll never see/read it.

The "Continue with" options on the Log In side adds to the confusion.

Existing members think they're logging into their existing account using those options.

Nowhere does this screen explain this is only for those who've already associated their accounts with these services.
