Customizing Scopes for Google Social Login

Scopes let you specify exactly what type of information your application can fetch from your users after they grant it accessβ€” and the generated access token includes these approved scopes. Frontegg currently fetches a user profile and user email as default scopes when users authenticate via their Google account. You can add additional, custom scopes to your social login via your Frontegg portal. To do so, go to [Environment name] > Authentication > Social login > Custom > Scopes. You can check Google's supported scopes here.
