Configuration#

Available settings:

ACCOUNT_ADAPTER (default: "allauth.account.adapter.DefaultAccountAdapter")

Specifies the adapter class to use, allowing you to alter certain default behaviour.

ACCOUNT_AUTHENTICATED_LOGIN_REDIRECTS (default: True)

The default behaviour is to redirect authenticated users to LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL when they try accessing login/signup pages.

By changing this setting to False, logged in users will not be redirected when they access login/signup pages.

ACCOUNT_AUTHENTICATION_METHOD (default: "username", alternatives: "email" or "username_email")

Specifies the login method to use – whether the user logs in by entering their username, email address, or either one of both. Setting this to "email" requires ACCOUNT_EMAIL_REQUIRED=True

ACCOUNT_CHANGE_EMAIL (default: False)

When disabled (False), users can add one or more email addresses (up to a maximum of ACCOUNT_MAX_EMAIL_ADDRESSES) to their account and freely manage those email addresses. When enabled (True), users are limited to having exactly one email address that they can change by adding a temporary second email address that, when verified, replaces the current email address.

ACCOUNT_CONFIRM_EMAIL_ON_GET (default: False)

Determines whether or not an email address is automatically confirmed by a GET request. GET is not designed to modify the server state, though it is commonly used for email confirmation. To avoid requiring user interaction, consider using POST via Javascript in your email confirmation template as an alternative to setting this to True.

ACCOUNT_EMAIL_CONFIRMATION_ANONYMOUS_REDIRECT_URL (default: settings.LOGIN_URL)

The URL to redirect to after a successful email confirmation, in case no user is logged in.

ACCOUNT_EMAIL_CONFIRMATION_AUTHENTICATED_REDIRECT_URL (default: None)

The URL to redirect to after a successful email confirmation, in case of an authenticated user. Set to None to use settings.LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL.

ACCOUNT_EMAIL_CONFIRMATION_EXPIRE_DAYS (default: 3)

Determines the expiration date of email confirmation mails (# of days).

ACCOUNT_EMAIL_CONFIRMATION_HMAC (default: True)

In order to verify an email address a key is mailed identifying the email address to be verified. In previous versions, a record was stored in the database for each ongoing email confirmation, keeping track of these keys. Current versions use HMAC based keys that do not require server side state.

ACCOUNT_EMAIL_NOTIFICATIONS (default: False)

When enabled, account related security notifications, such as “Your password was changed”, including information on user agent / IP address from where the change originated, will be emailed.

ACCOUNT_EMAIL_REQUIRED (default: False)

The user is required to hand over an email address when signing up.

ACCOUNT_EMAIL_VERIFICATION (default: "optional")

Determines the email verification method during signup – choose one of "mandatory", "optional", or "none".

Setting this to "mandatory" requires ACCOUNT_EMAIL_REQUIRED to be True.

When set to "mandatory" the user is blocked from logging in until the email address is verified. Choose "optional" or "none" to allow logins with an unverified email address. In case of "optional", the email verification mail is still sent, whereas in case of “none” no email verification mails are sent.

ACCOUNT_EMAIL_SUBJECT_PREFIX (default: "[Site] ")

Subject-line prefix to use for email messages sent. By default, the name of the current Site (django.contrib.sites) is used.

ACCOUNT_EMAIL_UNKNOWN_ACCOUNTS (default: True)

Configures whether password reset attempts for email addresses which do not have an account result in sending an email.

ACCOUNT_DEFAULT_HTTP_PROTOCOL (default: "http")

The default protocol used for when generating URLs, e.g. for the password forgotten procedure. Note that this is a default only – see the section on HTTPS for more information.

ACCOUNT_EMAIL_MAX_LENGTH (default: 254)

Maximum length of the email field. You won’t need to alter this unless using MySQL with the InnoDB storage engine and the utf8mb4 charset, and only in versions lower than 5.7.7, because the default InnoDB settings don’t allow indexes bigger than 767 bytes. When using utf8mb4, characters are 4-bytes wide, so at maximum column indexes can be 191 characters long (767/4). Unfortunately Django doesn’t allow specifying index lengths, so the solution is to reduce the length in characters of indexed text fields. More information can be found at MySQL’s documentation on converting between 3-byte and 4-byte Unicode character sets.

ACCOUNT_MAX_EMAIL_ADDRESSES (default: None)

The maximum amount of email addresses a user can associate to his account. It is safe to change this setting for an already running project – it will not negatively affect users that already exceed the allowed amount. Note that if you set the maximum to 1, users will not be able to change their email address.

ACCOUNT_FORMS

Used to override the builtin forms. Defaults to:

ACCOUNT_FORMS = {
    'add_email': 'allauth.account.forms.AddEmailForm',
    'change_password': 'allauth.account.forms.ChangePasswordForm',
    'login': 'allauth.account.forms.LoginForm',
    'reset_password': 'allauth.account.forms.ResetPasswordForm',
    'reset_password_from_key': 'allauth.account.forms.ResetPasswordKeyForm',
    'set_password': 'allauth.account.forms.SetPasswordForm',
    'signup': 'allauth.account.forms.SignupForm',
    'user_token': 'allauth.account.forms.UserTokenForm',
}
ACCOUNT_LOGIN_ON_EMAIL_CONFIRMATION (default: False)

The default behaviour is not log users in and to redirect them to ACCOUNT_EMAIL_CONFIRMATION_ANONYMOUS_REDIRECT_URL.

By changing this setting to True, users will automatically be logged in once they confirm their email address. Note however that this only works when confirming the email address immediately after signing up, assuming users didn’t close their browser or used some sort of private browsing mode.

ACCOUNT_LOGOUT_ON_GET (default: False)

Determines whether or not the user is automatically logged out by a GET request. GET is not designed to modify the server state, and in this case it can be dangerous. See LogoutView in the documentation for details.

ACCOUNT_LOGOUT_ON_PASSWORD_CHANGE (default: False)

Determines whether or not the user is automatically logged out after changing or setting their password. See documentation for Django’s session invalidation on password change.

ACCOUNT_LOGIN_ON_PASSWORD_RESET (default: False)

By changing this setting to True, users will automatically be logged in once they have reset their password. By default they are redirected to the password reset done page.

ACCOUNT_LOGOUT_REDIRECT_URL (default: settings.LOGOUT_REDIRECT_URL or "/")

The URL (or URL name) to return to after the user logs out. Defaults to Django’s LOGOUT_REDIRECT_URL, unless that is empty, then "/" is used.

ACCOUNT_PASSWORD_INPUT_RENDER_VALUE (default: False)

render_value parameter as passed to PasswordInput fields.

ACCOUNT_PASSWORD_RESET_TOKEN_GENERATOR (default: "allauth.account.forms.EmailAwarePasswordResetTokenGenerator")

A string pointing to a custom token generator (e.g. ‘myapp.auth.CustomTokenGenerator’) for password resets. This class should implement the same methods as django.contrib.auth.tokens.PasswordResetTokenGenerator or subclass it.

ACCOUNT_PRESERVE_USERNAME_CASING (default: True)

This setting determines whether the username is stored in lowercase (False) or whether its casing is to be preserved (True). Note that when casing is preserved, potentially expensive __iexact lookups are performed when filter on username. For now, the default is set to True to maintain backwards compatibility.

ACCOUNT_PREVENT_ENUMERATION (default: True)

Controls whether or not information is revealed about whether or not a user account exists. For example, by entering random email addresses in the password reset form you can test whether or not those email addresses are associated with an account. Enabling this setting prevents that, and an email is always sent, regardless of whether or not the account exists. Note that there is a slight usability tax to pay because there is no immediate feedback.

Whether or not enumeration can be prevented during signup depends on the email verification method. In case of mandatory verification, enumeration can be properly prevented because the case where an email address is already taken is indistinguishable from the case where it is not. However, in case of optional or disabled email verification, enumeration can only be prevented by allowing the signup to go through, resulting in multiple accounts sharing same email address (although only one of the accounts can ever have it verified). When enumeration is set to True, email address uniqueness takes precedence over enumeration prevention, and the issue of multiple accounts having the same email address will be avoided, thus leaking information. Set it to "strict" to allow for signups to go through.

ACCOUNT_RATE_LIMITS (default: {...})

In order to be secure out of the box various rate limits are in place. See Rate Limits for details.

ACCOUNT_REAUTHENTICATION_TIMEOUT (default: 300)

Before asking the user to reauthenticate, we check if a successful (re)authentication happened within the amount of seconds specified here, and if that is the case, the new reauthentication flow is silently skipped.

ACCOUNT_REAUTHENTICATION_REQUIRED (default: False)

Specifies whether or not reauthentication is required before the user can alter his account.

ACCOUNT_SESSION_REMEMBER (default: None)

Controls the life time of the session. Set to None to ask the user (“Remember me?”), False to not remember, and True to always remember.

ACCOUNT_SIGNUP_EMAIL_ENTER_TWICE (default: False)

When signing up, let the user type in their email address twice to avoid typo’s.

ACCOUNT_SIGNUP_FORM_CLASS (default: None)

A string pointing to a custom form class (e.g. 'myapp.forms.SignupForm') that is used during signup to ask the user for additional input (e.g. newsletter signup, birth date). This class should implement a def signup(self, request, user) method, where user represents the newly signed up user.

ACCOUNT_SIGNUP_PASSWORD_ENTER_TWICE (default: True)

When signing up, let the user type in their password twice to avoid typos.

ACCOUNT_SIGNUP_REDIRECT_URL (default: settings.LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL)

The URL (or URL name) to redirect to directly after signing up. Note that users are only redirected to this URL if the signup went through uninterruptedly, for example, without any side steps due to email verification. If your project requires the user to always pass through certain onboarding views after signup, you will have to keep track of state indicating whether or not the user successfully onboarded, and handle accordingly.

ACCOUNT_TEMPLATE_EXTENSION (default: "html")

A string defining the template extension to use, defaults to html.

ACCOUNT_USERNAME_BLACKLIST (default: [])

A list of usernames that can’t be used by user.

ACCOUNT_UNIQUE_EMAIL (default: True)

Enforce uniqueness of email addresses. On the database level, this implies that only one user account can have an email address marked as verified. Forms prevent a user from registering with or adding an additional email address if that email address is in use by another account.

ACCOUNT_USER_DISPLAY (default: a callable returning user.username)

A callable (or string of the form 'some.module.callable_name') that takes a user as its only argument and returns the display name of the user. The default implementation returns user.username.

ACCOUNT_USER_MODEL_EMAIL_FIELD (default: "email")

The name of the field containing the email, if any. See custom user models.

ACCOUNT_USER_MODEL_USERNAME_FIELD (default: "username")

The name of the field containing the username, if any. See custom user models.

ACCOUNT_USERNAME_MIN_LENGTH (default: 1)

An integer specifying the minimum allowed length of a username.

ACCOUNT_USERNAME_REQUIRED (default: True)

The user is required to enter a username when signing up. Note that the user will be asked to do so even if ACCOUNT_AUTHENTICATION_METHOD is set to email. Set to False when you do not wish to prompt the user to enter a username.

ACCOUNT_USERNAME_VALIDATORS (default: None)

A path ('some.module.validators.custom_username_validators') to a list of custom username validators. If left unset, the validators setup within the user model username field are used.

Example:

# In validators.py

from django.contrib.auth.validators import ASCIIUsernameValidator

custom_username_validators = [ASCIIUsernameValidator()]

# In settings.py

ACCOUNT_USERNAME_VALIDATORS = 'some.module.validators.custom_username_validators'
