Auth0 vs OAuth2: What are the differences?
Developers describe Auth0 as "Token-based Single Sign On for your Apps and APIs with social, databases and enterprise identities". A set of unified APIs and tools that instantly enables Single Sign On and user management to all your applications. On the other hand, OAuth2 is detailed as "An open standard for access delegation". It is an authorization framework that enables a third-party application to obtain limited access to an HTTP service, either on behalf of a resource owner by orchestrating an approval interaction between the resource owner and the HTTP service, or by allowing the third-party application to obtain access on its own behalf.
Auth0 and OAuth2 can be primarily classified as "User Management and Authentication" tools.
Binary.com, Chattermill, and White Rabbit Express are some of the popular companies that use Auth0, whereas OAuth2 is used by Ataccama, BookMeBus, and Mubasher.info.
