  • If you haven't done it yet, add this to your .env.local:


    NEXTAUTH_SECRET is a random chain of characters for JWT encryption. Put anything in there with a least 10 characters.

    Google will email you and you will have to reply to start the process. You'll need to have your domain verified with Google Search Console. You can go ahead and do that now.
    You can already login with Google on localhost. On production, it will work too but show a warning until you're verified (takes a few days).
The mongoDB adapter saves new users in the database when they successfully log in with Google. You have to configure the database first.
