Learn how registration and account sign-in works across various devices.*
What is account registration?
Registration is often the critical first step in getting a better understanding of your customer base, as well as providing your users with access to subscription-based content.
All AXIS Reference Apps include a standard registration flow. However, your solution likely has different steps, flows, and integration points. These differences are mapped out during your project discovery phase.
How do I register my account?
For now, let's take a look at the standard registration flow in AXIS on the web. The default sign-up flow enables users to specify:
- First name
- Last name
- Email address
- Four-digit PIN (optional)
The PIN restricts certain content to specific profiles on your user's account. The registration field includes an opt-in marketing tick box.
Once registered with an account, users can begin enjoying your content immediately. However, for security purposes, an email verification link is sent to ensure the validity of the email provided.
Note: There are no built-in rules around how unverified accounts are handled. However, this can is configurable on a case-by-case basis.
How do I sign in?
Users can sign in to AXIS with one of three methods:
- Username and password
- Social sign in through Facebook
- PIN code (TV devices only)
Username and password login
This is the standard login procedure across all AXIS apps. This method allows your users to log in with the username and password of their registered account.
Social sign in via Facebook
Social sign-in helps reduce the steps needed to access your service. Creating this integration opens up opportunities to gain a better understanding of your audience and their interests.
PIN code (TV devices only):
AXIS supports a PIN and Pair flow for signing in to your TV apps because typing out login details on a TV is often a slow and tedious process.
PIN and Pair explained
When selecting the Sign In button on a TV app, a web address and PIN code are surfaced.
After following this address and signing in on the web, enter the PIN code shown on the TV. Meanwhile, the TV is polling for an authentication response, and once the pin is entered on the web, the response is received, and the user is automatically logged in on their TV.
