Hello @lalecco,

 

You can't see through the UniFi Controller who authorized via FaceBook.

You can only see all the authorized guests.

@lalecco IIRC, when you are using Facebook authentication the registered guests will show up in the Hotspot Manager reports. Not sure on which controller versions this is still visible.

@lalecco I’m not sure I understand your second question. Are you looking for a way to add guests to your Facebbok page? Which Facebook feature supports that? Are you thinking of Likes?

 

Facebook does not allow forced Likes anymore so if that is what you have in mind, you will need to become creative. That being said: I personally do not see the value in Forced Likes. Instead, our captive portal software solution asks Facebook users to share a URL together with a pre-formatted message (which they can edit if they wish) on Facebook after authenticating. They also have the (mandatory) option to skip ths step.

Hi @lalecco

 

Facebook authentication on the UniFi hotspot will not provide you with a list of users or any personal details. It is simply a way of authenticating guests.

 

If you want to capture email or other data of the users who use your Wifi you will need to use the external portal server. You can either build your own or use a third party service

@lalecco@jamesmpc By the way, the default portal should be collecting the email addresses from Facebook logins and make them available here in the Hotspot manager:
