    Swipecart tutorial to whitelist your domains on the Firebase project account to allow authentication for your Android app.

    What is whitelisting on Firebase?

    • A Firebase project for your website/app gives access to various services, including authentication and analytics.
    • Firebase authentication for Android apps is a feature that allows users to sign in to your app using their email, passwords, or phone numbers.
    • But to make Firebase authentication work, you must whitelist your store domains so that the Firebase Authentication servers can redirect users to the website/app after they sign in using their email id or other standard methods.
    • By default, the localhost and your Firebase project’s hosting domain are whitelisted. But you must whitelist your store and Shopify store. Whitelisting allows for requests from any URL and port of the added domains.
