Giving Compass Grows Philanthropic Network with Auth0

Secure, social sign-on capabilities result in 25% increase in conversion rates.

August 16, 2017

BELLEVUE, WA—Auth0, the leading Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) platform, has helped Giving Compass stay secure while pursuing its mission. Giving Compass is a nonprofit organizing the world’s information to make it easier to give well.

Giving Compass is relying on Auth0’s robust authentication platform to create a secure and easily accessible platform for its growing network of philanthropists.

With a leadership team that hailed from the tech world, it was important to Giving Compass that they put technology first to help further their mission for good. After a thorough evaluation of identity providers, Auth0 was selected for its ease of use, as well as the ability to provide social login for users while keeping member data completely secure.

“Writing the code for authentication is always a nightmare, and it's the first potential door to a cyberattack,” said Luis Salazar, Co-Founder and Interim CEO, Giving Compass. “Peace of mind by having something that is proven and super easy to implement is the number one reason we chose Auth0. It just works.”

Auth0 was implemented in less than a week and provided Giving Compass with the solid technology foundation in which to grow its network. Thanks to the rapid integration, Giving Compass has saved more than 100 hours of identity-related development and testing (an estimated $25,000 thus far). It has also witnessed a 25% increase in conversions with social login functionality, resulting in 97 out of 100 people completing the signup process.
