Janrain Engage Adds foursquare as a Social Login Provider

Janrain is excited to announce the addition of the wildly popular location check-in service, foursquare, to our social login provider list. With over 8 million location based users, it would be foolish as a brand marketer to pass up the opportunity to allow these users to easily login to your website and/or mobile app and gain a multitude of information about that user.

Gain Access to foursquare User Profile Data

As with all of our providers, Janrain Engage allows you to gain access to a user’s profile data once they login with their preferred provider. After a user logs in with foursquare, and grants permission to access their data, you can gain access to information such as their username, gender, photo, email and more. You can see a full list of accessible user profile data here:
