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:

  1. Click User flows.
  2. Click your user flow (for example, "B2C_1_SiUp") to open it.
  3. Click Page layouts.
  4. Click Local account sign-up page.
  5. Click Email Address in the Name column under the User attributes section.
  6. Under Requires verification, select No.
  7. Click Save at the top of the blade. You're done!

Note

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.
