Build Status

Auth0 is an authentication broker that supports social identity providers as well as enterprise identity providers such as Active Directory, LDAP, Google Apps and Salesforce.

Lock-Facebook helps you integrate native Login with Facebook iOS SDK and Lock


iOS 7+


The Lock-Facebook is available through CocoaPods. To install it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

pod "Lock-Facebook", "~> 2.1"

Build issues with CocoaPods

If you add uses_frameworks! flag to your Podfile, you’ll not be able to build the project with an error similar to the following:

Include of non-modular header inside framework module 'FBSDKLoginKit.FBSDKLoginConstants'

This is due to how Facebook SDK handles headers. A workaround to this issue is to add the following to your Podfile:

post_install do |installer|
    installer.pods_project.build_configurations.each { |bc|

Before you start using Lock-Facebook

In order to authenticate against Facebook, you’ll need to register your application in Facebook Developer portal. We recommend following their quickstart for iOS.

If you already have your FacebookAppID, then in your project’s Info.plist file add the following entries:


Then register a custom URL Type with the format fb<FacebookAppId>.

Here’s an example of how the entries should look like in your Info.plist file:

FB plist


Just create a new instance of A0FacebookAuthenticator for the default permission public_profile

A0FacebookAuthenticator *facebook = [A0FacebookAuthenticator newAuthenticationWithDefaultPermissions];
let facebook = A0FacebookAuthenticator.newAuthenticatorWithDefaultPermissions()

and register it with your instance of A0Lock

A0Lock *lock = //Get your A0Lock instance
[lock registerAuthenticators:@Share];
let lock:A0Lock = //Get your A0Lock instance

A good place to create and register A0FacebookAuthenticator is the AppDelegateclass.

Specify additional Read permissions

A0FacebookAuthenticator *facebook = [A0FacebookAuthenticator newAuthenticatorWithPermissions:@[@"public_profile", @"email"]];
let facebook = A0FacebookAuthenticator.newAuthenticatorWithPermissions(["public_profile", "email"])

Custom Facebook connection

A0FacebookAuthenticator *facebook = [A0FacebookAuthenticator newAuthenticatorWithDefaultPermissionsForConnectionName:@"custom-connection-name"];
let facebook = A0FacebookAuthenticator.newAuthenticatorWithDefaultPermissionsForConnectionName("custom-connection-name")
