OAuth 2.0 with Deeplink Implementation

What is OAuth?

OAuth is an API-based authorization protocol that allows a third-party website or application to authorize access to a user's data without the need for users to share their login credentials. It works its magic through the use of tokens.

What is deep linking?

Deeplinks are a type of link that sends users directly to an app instead of a website or a store. They are used to send users straight to specific in-app locations, saving users the time and energy to locate a particular page themselves – significantly improving the user experience.

Deep linking does this by specifying a custom URL scheme (iOS Universal Links) or an intent URL (on Android devices) that opens your app if it’s already installed. Deep links can also be set to direct users to specific events or pages, which could tie into campaigns that you may want to run.

The seamless user authentication and app enablement experience is done through the use of Oauth 2.0, One time Key & Deeplink.
