Somewhere in your Jamstack journey you may find the need for an authentication solution, so that users are able to sign up, log in and log out from your application. Although these pages sound trivial and common, introducing auth results in a honeypot of user data for swarms of hackers in the digital realm. 🍯🐝
Because the internet is filled with these honeypots, we’re seeing more and more privacy laws go into effect around the world in an effort to protect people’s digital identities. This is why it’s crucial to understand your options, their tradeoffs, and what your values are, when adding auth to your application.
