New user question - how do I create/manage user accounts that include social logins?

I am interested in using this https://www.forgebox.io/view/socialite to create social logins. I’ve never attempted this before and am used to creating username/password accounts. How do I structure the database to handle either type securely?

I want users to be able to create a user account on my site using any method they are comfortable with. Whether they log in via google or an email/pw locally, my app needs to find and load their local settings and proceed.

Then you can certainly look into Socialite. That module isn’t part of the core ColdBox nor is it maintained by Ortus so I’d recommend following up directly with the author of that module if you have questions on how to use it.
