Configuration & Usage

    $config = array(
      "base_url" => "",
      "providers" => array (
        "Google" => array (
          "enabled" => true,
          "keys"    => array ( "id" => "PUT_YOURS_HERE", "secret" => "PUT_YOURS_HERE" ),
          "scope"           => " ". // optional
                               ""   , // optional
          "access_type"     => "offline",   // optional
          "approval_prompt" => "force",     // optional
          "hd"              => "" // optional

    require_once( "/path/to/hybridauth/Hybrid/Auth.php" );

    $hybridauth = new Hybrid_Auth( $config );

    $adapter = $hybridauth->authenticate( "Google" );

    $user_profile = $adapter->getUserProfile();

For Google you can configure several extra options: (refer to")

  • scope: A space delimited set of permissions the application requests. Indicates the Google API access your application is requesting.
  • access_type: Can be "online or offline". By default its set to "offline". Indicates if your application needs to access a Google API when the user is not present at the browser.
  • approval_prompt: Can be "force or auto". By default its set to "auto". Indicates if the user should be re-prompted for consent. The default is auto, so a given user should only see the consent page for a given set of scopes the first time through the sequence. If the value is force, then the user sees a consent page even if they have previously given consent to your application for a given set of scopes.
  • hd: Can be used to force users from a specific domain.
