Now, we required facebook client id and secret key, if you don't have an app account then you need to create one from the below link. Create Facebook Account after creating an account you can copy the client id and secret key.

return [
    'facebook' => [
        'client_id' => 'your client ID',
        'client_secret' => 'your client secret',
        'redirect' => 'http://localhost:8000/callback',


Step 6 : Create Controller

Now create Controller LoginWithFacebookController, in this controller we have added the redirect() function to redirect the user to Facebook, and the callback() function is used to handle the user when callback from Facebook.


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Exception;
use App\Models\User;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Auth;
use Laravel\Socialite\Facades\Socialite;

class LoginWithFacebookController extends Controller
    public function redirectFacebook()
        return Socialite::driver('facebook')->redirect();

    public function facebookCallback()
        try {
            $user = Socialite::driver('facebook')->user();
            $finduser = User::where('facebook_id', $user->id)->first();
                return redirect()->intended('dashboard');
                $newUser = User::create([
                    'name' => $user->name,
                    'email' => $user->email,
                    'facebook_id'=> $user->id,
                    'password' => encrypt('Test123456')
                return redirect()->intended('dashboard');
        } catch (Exception $e) {



Step 7 : Create Route

Now, add routes on web.php file/


use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
use App\Http\Controllers\LoginWithFacebookController;

Route::get('/redirect', [LoginWithFacebookController::class, 'redirectFacebook']);
Route::get('/callback', [LoginWithFacebookController::class, 'facebookCallback']);


Step 8 : Add Code in Blade File

 Now add the below code in resources/views/auth/login.blade.php.

        <x-slot name="logo">
            <x-jet-authentication-card-logo />

        <x-jet-validation-errors class="mb-4" />

        @if (session('status'))
            <div class="mb-4 font-medium text-sm text-green-600">
                {{ session('status') }}

        <form method="POST" action="{{ route('login') }}">

                <x-jet-label for="email" value="{{ __('Email') }}" />
                <x-jet-input id="email" class="block mt-1 w-full" type="email" name="email" :value="old('email')" required autofocus />

            <div class="mt-4">
                <x-jet-label for="password" value="{{ __('Password') }}" />
                <x-jet-input id="password" class="block mt-1 w-full" type="password" name="password" required autocomplete="current-password" />

            <div class="block mt-4">
                <label for="remember_me" class="flex items-center">
                    <input id="remember_me" type="checkbox" class="form-checkbox" name="remember">
                    <span class="ml-2 text-sm text-gray-600">{{ __('Remember me') }}</span>

            <div class="flex items-center justify-end mt-4">
                @if (Route::has('password.request'))
                    <a class="underline text-sm text-gray-600 hover:text-gray-900" href="{{ route('password.request') }}">
                        {{ __('Forgot your password?') }}

                <x-jet-button class="ml-4">
                    {{ __('Login') }}
            <div class="flex items-center justify-end mt-4">
                <a class="ml-1 btn btn-primary" href="{{ url('redirect') }}" style="margin-top: 0px !important;background: #4c6ef5;color: #ffffff;padding: 5px;border-radius:7px;" id="btn-fblogin">
                    <i class="fa fa-facebook-square" aria-hidden="true"></i> Login with Facebook


Step 9 : Add Column in Database

In this step, add a column in the user table and set the name as facebook_id.

php artisan make:migration Add_Facebook_Id_To_Users

Now, add a new column in your code like below.

 public function up()
        Schema::table('users', function (Blueprint $table) {



Step 10 : Update Model

Now, update the model as below.


namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;
use Laravel\Fortify\TwoFactorAuthenticatable;
use Laravel\Jetstream\HasProfilePhoto;
use Laravel\Jetstream\HasTeams;
use Laravel\Sanctum\HasApiTokens;

class User extends Authenticatable
    use HasApiTokens;
    use HasFactory;
    use HasProfilePhoto;
    use HasTeams;
    use Notifiable;
    use TwoFactorAuthenticatable;

     * The attributes that are mass assignable.
     * @var array
    protected $fillable = [
        'name', 'email', 'password','facebook_id',

     * The attributes that should be hidden for arrays.
     * @var array
    protected $hidden = [

     * The attributes that should be cast to native types.
     * @var array
    protected $casts = [
        'email_verified_at' => 'datetime',

     * The accessors to append to the model's array form.
     * @var array
    protected $appends = [

Now, we have done with our code and it's time to run our project.
