The LoginRadius Social Platform came into being after our founders, school pals Rakesh Soni and Deepak Gupta, noticed many websites - including one of their own - were getting lots of traffic but very few sign ups.

All our 30+ staff based in Edmonton (Canada), Jaipur (India) and Silicon Valley (USA) are committed to transforming and simplifying the way users connect to the web and mobile apps and we won’t stop until the entire web is social…
