The sign in prompt automation allows you to encourage users to sign in based on clicks, time duration, sessions, or an entire page. Connect this prompt to a sign-in button or an app feature requiring authentication.

Sign in prompt use cases

  • Content Gating: Enhance user engagement by implementing click-triggered sign-in prompts within your application. These prompts allow users to explore your app freely, only requesting sign-in when specific elements are clicked. For example, if you wish to restrict access to certain features for unauthenticated users, seamlessly integrate a Rownd sign-in prompt to the corresponding tab or element in your app. This process takes just minutes to implement, encouraging users to sign in to access exclusive content.

  • Free Trials: Provide prospective users with the opportunity to experience your product through free trials without the initial sign-up requirement. Utilize time-based sign-in prompts to prompt users to sign in after a defined period, whether it’s 5 minutes, 24 hours, or 4 days—flexibility tailored to your needs. Time-based prompts allow users ample time to familiarize themselves with your product, generating excitement and increasing the likelihood of conversion when prompted to sign up.

  • Simple Buttons: Simplify the process of integrating sign-in functionality into your website, even when your development team has limited availability. Sign-in prompts empower you to connect sign-in actions to any button or element seamlessly. Additionally, you can redirect users to specific destinations after they sign in, providing complete control over their post-login journey.
