To serve our customers in best possible way, we keep improving our Platform with best in class features and functionalities. In our latest release, LoginRadius engineering team has made several improvements bringing in more features and flexibility to our platform. Important features added in this release are:

LoginRadius platform has included the latest APIs in its platform and customers can get email as part of profile data with Twitter login. In order to get email as part of Profile data, customers have to get their app approved by Twitter.
