Firebase Authentication vs LDAP: What are the differences?

Developers describe Firebase Authentication as "An App Authentication System In A Few Lines Of Code". It provides backend services, easy-to-use SDKs, and ready-made UI libraries to authenticate users to your app. It supports authentication using passwords, phone numbers, popular federated identity providers like Google,. On the other hand, LDAP is detailed as "An open source implementation of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol". It is a free, open-source implementation of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol. Lightweight Directory Access is an application protocol that is used to crosscheck information on the server end.

Firebase Authentication and LDAP can be primarily classified as "User Management and Authentication" tools.
