What is Consent Management?

With the growing number of security breaches over the past decade, it's no surprise that privacy concerns and accompanying legislation have become hot topics. This has also prompted a huge shift in how websites and applications obtain user consent for collecting their data, otherwise known as consent management.

Implementing consent management for your users can quickly become a monumental task. First, you have to understand the privacy regulations that affect your users. You may serve users from all over the world, so the exact regulations will vary. After you understand what you need to implement, then comes the how.

Managing user opt-ins, email consent, communications, data storage, and more on your own can become overwhelming. Luckily, there are a few companies out there that have made consent management their bread and butter!

Let's look at some of the ways you can implement consent management in your application using the Auth0 Marketplace.
