Firebase Authentication Air Native Extension (Android+iOS)
Firebase Authentication ANE enables the Google Firebase Authentication feature in your Adobe Air projects supported on both Android and iOS with 100% identical ActionScript API.
Firebase Authentication ANE provides you a full authentication system on top of reliable Google infrastructure. Easily signup/in/out users using their email addresses and passwords, handle sending password reset emails and also integrate popular federated identity providers like Google, Facebook and Twitter, and more to authenticate.
Alright, So Firebase Authentication takes care of it all with considering the best practices. All you need to do is to to use the existing Firebase Auth methods to take care of the user authentication. And of course, after a successful sign in/up it can get connected to Firebase Realtime Database (and other Firebase services) to read/write data for that authenticated user. Easy like a piece of cake! Now imagine how expensive and time consuming it could be if you wanted to bring a similar functionality you yourself by writing some server-side codes and storing data on your own hosting!

Email and password based authentication
Most apps need to know the identity of a user. Knowing a user’s identity allows an app to securely save user data in the cloud and provide the same personalized experience across all of the user’s devices.
The Firebase Authentication ANE provides methods to create and manage users that use their email addresses and passwords to sign in. It also handles sending password reset emails (Bult-in forgot password functionality). So easy to use built on top of reliable Google infrastructure. So no need to code all of these by yourself anymore, Firebase does that for you!
Phone number authentication
Most of the apps today are using phone number authentication as it’s fast and simple. Firebase Auth ANE helps you authenticate users by sending SMS messages to their phones.
Ready to be integrated with federated identity providers
Apart from the standard “Email & Password Authentication”, Firebase Authentication ANE is also ready to be integrated with federated identity providers. So you can use it to sign in users via Google, Facebook, Twitter and Github.
At the moment it can work with Facebook ANE to sign in users using their Facebook account. but signing in using other providers is not available currently because each provider needs its own ANE so that it can get connected to the Firebase Authentication ANE.
