We currently use Auth0 to connect our authentication providers to internal services. It was implemented by our backend team but it's currently being used company-wide to assist with authentication of users and APIs. Auth0 reduces the amount of development time needed to integrate authentication services in our organization and gives us peace of mind when it comes to security.
  • The Auth0 documentation provides plenty of examples and tutorials for users to get up and running quickly
  • Auth0 is very flexible, it has a lot of pre-build authentication methods but also allows you to customize your method of authentication if you need to build off an internal provider
  • The Auth0 user interface is generally intuitive and it has detailed logs to assist with auditing
  • Auth0 comes at a very competitive price-point if your platform doesn't require a huge number of users (the free tier alone could be sufficient for many)
  • Auth0 can be somewhat limiting if you want a lot of control over the design of your authentication flow. Custom branding can be done, but it may be limited depending on how you plan to integrate.
  • The Auth0 API documentation has proven confusing at times; a single API endpoint's behaviour will change based on inputs and configured settings (e.g. offline_access). Consequently fields that are advertised as being returned in a response might not be there or have different values if you miss a key detail and it can be difficult to debug when this happens. All information required is available in the documentation but requires some digging.
  • The toggle to switch tenants feels a bit odd, it works, but I've had a few instances where I didn't realize I was on a staging tenant looking for something that was on the production tenant. Not a big deal, just something to watch out for.
Scenarios where Auth0 is well suited:
- Auth0 is great for companies with a small user base, who don't require a heavy amount of customization in their login experience
- Projects that require fast iteration (e.g. you don't want to re-implement the OAuth spec every project)
- Enterprises that want peace of mind with authentication security (again it reduces the risk of you re-implementing an authentication standard in an insecure fashion)

Scenarios where Auth0 is less appropriate:
- The Auth0 price point (quickly increasing based on monthly active users) is limiting for startups that are strapped for cash who expect fast growth in user base. Consequently, it may not be a great tool for companies with a large base of free users.

Auth0 is being used as our identity management system and is used for user authentication and federation of login across multiple B2C websites.
  • SDKs in every possible technology
  • Excellent customer success engineering support
  • Developer friendly integration processes
  • Logging of user activity on on-premise appliance based deployments.
  • Better support for embedded login which allows the client's portal to manage login experience as per their choice.
  • Better version upgrade management of application.
Well suited for federated login requirement across portals built on different technology stacks and authentication protocols. Not well suited for small companies looking out for economical solutions.

Auth0 authentication APIs are being used by our organization for a single sign-on across applications. It is now the primary authentication and social login platform for us. Using these APIs has helped our developers to quickly implement authentication while supporting multiple login sites, effectively decreasing development time and increasing the efficiency of the code.
  • Multi-factor authentication.
  • Monitoring user activity.
  • A single platform for identity management.
  • Some parts of the documentation are outdated and need to be worked on.
  • Transparency in pricing, esp renewals.
I have used the free version of Auth0 for small applications. It is indeed powerful, and enables the quick development of an authentication module for your app. However, do evaluate the tool with pricing under consideration.

We use Auth0 for Single Sign-On for our developers on our backend. We use our software host (GitLab) to allow developers to log in using their matching GitLab IDs, and use multi-factor authentication (Yubikeys and Google Auth) to further secure our logins. Using Auth0 has saved us time from re-creating SSO on our backend and creating a secure login solution that has an attractive UI.
  • Relatively affordable. For the time you're saving by not having to "re-invent" the wheel, Auth0 is a relatively affordable option for logging in. It's free up to 7,000 active users, making it an ideal option for small teams requiring 2FA and SSO.
  • Good UI. Auth0's UI is awesome, and really fast. They offer a very elegant design compared to other 3rd-party SSO services.
  • Great documentation, easy implementation. Implementing logins with Auth0 is really easy, as most of the login process happens on their site, with a simple callback. This is similar to other services that use OAuth and OAuth 2.0
  • Expensive at scale. For companies that are scaling up their usage and decide to continue to use Auth0, it can get quite expensive (at least ~$13 per 1,000 active users for the cheapest plan).
  • There isn't much customizability for their UI. Some companies may be satisfied with the way it is, but for companies that aren't, there isn't much they can do.
  • There's still a number of missing OAuth integrations. This could definitely use some work.
Auth0 is great for companies that can afford to scale up their service with Auth0 included, and for companies that are looking to quickly implement an auth provider for a lower number of users. For companies that need an auth provider that works at scale, it is probably a better idea to use a library of OAuth integrations that work with SSO services directly (like Passport.js).

It's used to manage the accounts of all our customers. We used to implement our own system to manage our customer accounts. However, when we decided to move on to microservices system architecture, we decide to move on from it and use Auth0 to manage our customer accounts across all services that we provide
  • Good support
  • Offers a broad range of functionality for authentication
  • Flexible and can be used in a lot of use cases
  • Cheap to start with
  • There's been quite a lot of changes lately. Few APIs have been deprecated and we had to adjust our implementation in a relatively short time
  • MFA support could be very expensive
  • Some APIs and functionality are not fully baked yet and prone to deprecation/changes
Auth0 is really well suited if you want to move to microservices architecture, and the JWT token use case that Auth0 utilises is really spot on. We could carry the JWT token across domains/subdomains which serves as a login cookie and is secure.

I wouldn't recommend Auth0 for a small application which only has 1 service on 1 server. Auth0 would be an overkill in that case
