    Passport strategy for the new Sign in with Apple feature, now with fetching profile information ✅!


    Live on

    Example repo:


    Install the package via npm / yarn: npm install --save passport-apple

    Next, you need to configure your Apple Developer Account with Sign in with Apple.

    Steps for that are given here:


    Initialize the strategy as follows:

    const AppleStrategy = require('passport-apple');
    passport.use(new AppleStrategy({
        clientID: "",
        teamID: "",
        callbackURL: "",
        keyID: "",
        privateKeyLocation: "",
        passReqToCallback: true
    }, function(req, token, refreshToken, decodedIdToken, profile, cb) {
        // Here, check if the decodedIdToken.sub exists in your database!
        // decodedIdToken should contains email too if user authorized it but will not contain the name
        // `profile` parameter is REQUIRED for the sake of passport implementation
        // it should be profile in the future but apple hasn't implemented passing data
        // in access token yet
        cb(null, decodedIdToken);

    Add the login route:

    app.get("/login", passport.authenticate('apple'));

    Finally, add the callback route and handle the response:

    app.get("/auth", function(req, res, next) {
        passport.authenticate('apple', function(err, user, info) {
            if (err) {
                if (err == "AuthorizationError") {
                    res.send("Oops! Looks like you didn't allow the app to proceed. Please sign in again! <br /> \
                    <a href=\"/login\">Sign in with Apple</a>");
                } else if (err == "TokenError") {
                    res.send("Oops! Couldn't get a valid token from Apple's servers! <br /> \
                    <a href=\"/login\">Sign in with Apple</a>");
            } else {
        })(req, res, next);

    What's the difference between apple-auth and passport-apple?

    apple-auth is a standalone library for Sign in with Apple. It does not require you to use Passport.js where as passport-apple is used with Passport.js.

    ⚠️ Legal Disclaimer

    This repository is NOT developed, endorsed by Apple Inc. or even related at all to Apple Inc. This library was implemented solely by the community's hardwork, and based on information that is public on Apple Developer's website. The library merely acts as a helper tool for anyone trying to implement Apple's Sign in with Apple.

    How is this module different from nicokaiser/passport-apple?

    @nicokaiser/passport-apple is a fork of passport-apple that was made when passport-apple couldn't support fetching profile information. passport-apple now supports fetching profile information as well by using a simpler workaround (shoutout to @MotazAbuElnasr for this!) instead of rewriting all of passport-oauth2.
