Stytch React Native SDK


With npm npm install @stytch/react-native @stytch/react-native-inappbrowser-reborn --save

If your project uses a bare React Native workflow on iOS: cd ios && pod install && cd ..


The Stytch React Native SDK uses React v17+ and React Native v63+.

The Biometrics product depends on iOS 13+ and Android 6+. We only support Class 3 biometric sensors on Android. If you are testing biometrics on an iOS simulator or Android emulator, please ensure you are using one of the following versions: iOS 13 or 14, Android 11 or below. This should not be an issue on physical devices.


For full documentation please refer to Stytch's React Native SDK documentation.

You can find migration guides for any breaking changes in between versions here.

Example Usage

Check out our example app here.


To test your integration of the Stytch React Native SDK, we recommend creating methods that take the StytchClient as a parameter when using the client to begin/complete authentication, and then stubbing the StytchClient when testing those methods.

For example, the following method uses the StytchClient to authenticate a magic link.

export const authenticate = (
  token: string,
  stytch: StytchClient,
  onSuccess: (res: MagicLinksAuthenticateResponse) => void,
  onFailure: () => void,
) => {
    .authenticate(token, { session_duration_minutes: 60 })
    .then((res) => {
    .catch((e) => {

In order to test that this method passes the response into the onSuccess method, you could write the following test:

import { authenticate } from '../EMLAuthenticateScreen';

const mockStytchClient = {
  magicLinks: {
    authenticate: jest.fn(() => Promise.resolve({ user_id: 'abc-123' })),

describe('authenticate', () => {
  it('returns data on success', async () => {
    let userData;
    await authenticate(
      (res) => {
        userData = res;
      () => console.log('success'),

The above example asserts that your method handles a successful response as expected. You can use this system in order to test any potential successes (with Promise.resolve in the mockStytchClient) or failures (with Promise.reject in the mockStytchClient) that you might expect from Stytch.

If you need to exercise component functionality and cannot abstract the logic into it's own function, you can also create mock StytchClients and return them from the useStytch hook like this.

import { useStytch } from '@stytch/react-native';
import { MyComponent } from './MyComponent';

jest.mock('@stytch/react-native', () => ({
  useStytch: jest.fn(),

describe('MyComponent', () => {
  it('Does something', () => {
    const mockStytchClient = {
      magicLinks: {
        email: {
          loginOrCreate: jest.fn(),

    const component = renderer.create(<MyComponent />);

The above example tests that the MyComponent component calls the StytchClient method magicLinks.email.loginOrCreate with a specific input.
