You can use Firebase Authentication to let your users authenticate with Firebase using email addresses and passwords.
#Before you begin
If you haven't already, follow the steps in the Get started guide.
Enable Email/Password sign-in:
- In the Firebase console's Authentication section, open the Sign in method page.
- From the Sign in method page, enable the Email/password sign-in method and click Save.
#Create a password-based account
To create a new user account with a password, call the
Typically, you would do this from your app's sign-up screen. When a new user signs up using your app's sign-up form, complete any new account validation steps that your app requires, such as verifying that the new account's password was correctly typed and meets your complexity requirements.
If the new account was created successfully, the user is also signed in. If you are listening to changes in authentication state, a new event will be sent to your listeners.
As a follow-up to creating a new account, you can Verify the user's email address.
To protect your project from abuse, Firebase limits the number of new email/password and anonymous sign-ups that your application can have from the same IP address in a short period of time. You can request and schedule temporary changes to this quota from the Firebase console.

The steps for signing in a user with a password are similar to the steps for

When a user uninstalls your app on iOS or macOS, the user's authentication state can persist between app re-installs, as the Firebase iOS SDK persists authentication state to the system keychain. See issue #4661 for more information.

In your apps, you can get the user's basic profile information from the
User object. See Manage Users.
In your Firebase Realtime Database and Cloud Storage Security Rules, you can
get the signed-in user's unique user ID from the
auth variable, and use it to
control what data a user can access.
You can allow users to sign in to your app using multiple authentication providers by linking auth provider credentials) to an existing user account.
To sign out a user, call
