Connect Apps to Yahoo
The Yahoo social connection allows users to log in to your application using their Yahoo profile.
By default, Auth0 automatically syncs user profile data with each user login, thereby ensuring that changes made in the connection source are automatically updated in Auth0. Optionally, you can disable user profile data synchronization to allow for updating profile attributes from your application.
To connect your app to Yahoo, you will:

While setting up your app, use the following settings:
|Field||Value to Provide|
|API Permissions||Select OpenID Connect Permissions, then at minimum, Email (to ensure that Yahoo returns the user's email address).|
