Disable email verification during consumer sign-up in Azure Active Directory B2C
When enabled, Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) B2C gives a consumer the ability to sign up for applications by providing an email address and creating a local account. Azure AD B2C ensures valid email addresses by requiring consumers to verify them during the sign-up process. It also prevents a malicious automated process from generating fake accounts for the applications.
Some application developers prefer to skip email verification during the sign-up process and instead have consumers verify the email address later. To support this, Azure AD B2C can be configured to disable email verification. Doing so creates a smoother sign-up process and gives developers the flexibility to differentiate the consumers that have verified their email address from those consumers that have not.
By default, sign-up user flows have email verification turned on. Use the following steps to turn it off:
- Click User flows.
- Click your user flow (for example, "B2C_1_SiUp") to open it.
- Click Page layouts.
- Click Local account sign-up page.
- Click Email Address in the Name column under the User attributes section.
- Under Requires verification, select No.
- Click Save at the top of the blade. You're done!
Disabling email verification in the sign-up process may lead to spam. If you disable the default one, we recommend adding your own verification system.
