Login widget

Using the Login widget, your website users will be able to login to your website. The widget displays a username and password login fields and additional login options that you have configured.

IMPORTANT: Depending on which authentication mode you are using, you have to use different widgets. If you are in claims-based authentication mode, use the Login widget. If you are in forms authentication, use the Login (backward compatibility) widget. For more information about authentication modes and how to switch between them, see Authentication and Single Sign-On (SSO).

NOTE: In claims-based mode, you can use functionality for changing password. For more information, see Change password widget widget.
