Login using Webservice


How can we submit user credentials to a back-end web service for validation in a secured way?


Hi @adgetz,

I know of two options:

  1. Get an SSL certificate and make sure $http.post communications are using https in the endpoint
  2. Implement Oauth so your app loads a remote login prompt via the web browser and returns a token for future API use

I’m sure there are other ways, but those are just two.



Hi @nicraboy
Thanks for your quick response. I think I can go with 2 for time being.


Actually this is a more angular question than ionic and I’m sure you will find a lot of useful resources regarding token-based authorization in angular. Here is the one will get you started.


I´m using firebase for this. See this helpful tutorial
