New Universal Login vs. Classic Universal Login

If you decide to authenticate users with Auth0's Universal Login, you have a choice of two implementations:

  • New Universal Login offers a simpler and faster experience for end-users. All current and future Universal Login development work goes into the New Universal Login only. However, some Classic Universal Login features are not yet available in New Universal Login.

  • Classic Universal Login uses JavaScript controls for each page. Auth0 no longer adds new features to the Classic Universal Login.
