Is there a way you can use the same login data on your website to your app? For example, how Facebook has a website and an app and they all use sane login data. How can I do this?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There are a number of things to consider, like security. Using the same credentials across many applications is not a good idea. More details on the project would help us provide a better response. You could always store the initial login in a cookie and use that to access the inner app if it too requires a login. The question is if the inner app is accessible outside of the main one. You would have to condition a secondary login to display if the cookie had no login credentials.

    What did you want to achieve? In mobile it is always logged in once you have logged with proper user ID/password. On PC/laptop, it is always a good practice to sign out after checking the same.
