During The Basics, we walked through the fundamentals of spinning up a new property in the Swoop dashboard. Now we'll dive a bit deeper into a couple of additional property settings that will allow you more control over your user authentication experience.

1. One-Click Connect

After a user has authenticated by either sending or receiving an email to authenticate, we provide the option to either enable or disable One-Click Connect functionality.

When this feature is enabled, after quick setup is complete the user will be presented with One-Click Connect service screen for a truly one-click experience. We realize that some implementers may want to force a full cycle authentication with each pass. In this case, simply disable the the One-Click Connect toggle.

2. Swoop Banner

By default, Swoop displays a banner (left side for desktop, bottom for mobile) with the green Swoop background, "We've Made Passwords Obsolete" explainer text, and the Swoop logo. You can disable this to make the screen elements reposition to center. In a future release, Enterprise subscribers will have the option to replace this image and text with an image and text of their choice!

3. ReCAPTCHA

Swoop integrates Google's Invisible reCAPTCHA v3 to help stop bots in their tracks. When a user selects the Mail, Other, or Copy Address buttons reCAPTCHA is triggered. If Google thinks the user is a bot they will be automatically emailed a Magic Code. Retrieving and entering this code will allow them to proceed with authentication.

This feature is on by default and will work for 30 days after initial app creation to aid in testing. After 30 days it will automatically disable until you provide your own key.

Google reCAPTCHA keys are free, and can be obtained from https://google.com/recaptcha/admin/create
