Important Ecosystem Guidelines

These guidelines must be followed by all clients in order for us to work towards a streamlined and efficient login experience to all users. These guidelines will also help us reach a higher share of logged in users throughout the ecosystem of products and services that has implemented Schibsted account. Everybody wins!

Web applications


Always implement the JavaScript SDK


  • Manages user login state seamlessly
  • Answers if user need to accept your TOS or not
  • Helps clients automatically retrieve tokens for API access for logged in users
  • Tells client when a user is logged out centrally and/or if the logged in user has changed in Schibsted account


Use the JavaScript SDK provided by Schibsted account, do not develop your own


  • The SDK will be actively maintained by Schibsted account together with the community
  • You may contribute to it on Github


Check that your implementation follows the login flow


  • This flow documents every state a user visiting your site might have
  • It will improve the stability of your implementation and the user experience of your users


Make sure that when user logs out, you trigger a logout from Schibsted account


  • Respect the user’s choice when they choose to log out
  • Consistency in the expected behaviour of a logout button/link
  • To avoid confusing people and to protect personal security, we enforce this logout behavior

Mobile applications


Use the official Schibsted account SDKs, do not develop your own:


Native apps that don’t use our SDKs will:

  • not be offered technical support
  • not have new introduced features, like device fingerprinting

Branding of Schibsted account


Comply with the Schibsted account brand guidelines.

Note: The current brand guidelines are temporary and will be updated once the rebranding project is completed.


We need to offer a consistent and recognisable login experience across all products and services in the ecosystem


To-the-point technical guides that get you started with the Schibsted account API.

Getting started with the API

Connect your application to the Schibsted account API and make your first call, verify that your client ID and secrets are correctly configured.

Single Sign-On

Payment provider

Using Schibsted account as a payment provider, your users can purchase products via Schibsted account, and you can track their purchases in your application to give access to products and pages.

Working examples

So you prefer to dive straight into the code? Here are some example repos that work out of the box.

Official API clients and SDKs

Schibsted account provides officially supported API clients (SDKs) for several languages. All our libraries are hosted on GitHub, feel free to report any issues, send pull requests, or just have a look at the source.

Server-side client libraries

These libraries can be used to integrate with Schibsted account server-side. Directions for installation and basic use can be found in our getting started guide.

Client-side SDKs

These libraries solve different use cases than the server-side ones, and are generally more feature rich. They are designed to build client-side apps.
