How To Make Login Page In Xcode Firebase

iPhone Apps

In this article, I will guide you through the process of creating a login page in Xcode using Firebase. As a developer who has worked extensively with both Xcode and Firebase, I can assure you that this combination is perfect for building secure and robust login systems for your iOS applications.

Setting up Firebase

The first step is to create a new project on the Firebase console. Head over to the Firebase console and click on the “Add Project” button. Give your project a name and click on “Continue”. Once your project is created, you’ll be redirected to the project dashboard.

Next, click on the “Authentication” tab in the left sidebar. Here, you’ll find different authentication methods that Firebase supports. For a login page, we’ll be using the “Email/Password” authentication method. Toggle the switch to enable it. You can also customize the email templates and other settings according to your requirements.

Now, let’s integrate Firebase into your Xcode project. Open your Xcode project and navigate to the “File” menu. Select “Swift Packages” and then “Add Package Dependency”. In the search bar, type “Firebase” and select the “Firebase/Auth” package. Click on “Next” and follow the prompts to add the package to your project.

Designing the Login Page

Now that Firebase is set up, let’s move on to designing the login page. Open your storyboard file in Xcode and drag a “View Controller” from the object library onto the canvas. Set it as the initial view controller by checking the “Is Initial View Controller” checkbox in the Attributes inspector.

Next, add the necessary UI elements for the login page, such as text fields for email and password input, a login button, and a registration button. You can customize the UI elements to match the aesthetics of your app. Don’t forget to add the appropriate Auto Layout constraints to ensure that the UI adapts to different device sizes.

Handling User Authentication

Now it’s time to write the code to handle user authentication using Firebase. Open the Swift file for your view controller and import the Firebase module at the top of the file:

import Firebase

In the view controller’s class, add a function to handle the login button action:

@IBAction func loginButtonTapped(_ sender: UIButton) {
guard let email = emailTextField.text, !email.isEmpty,
let password = passwordTextField.text, !password.isEmpty else {
// Show an alert to inform the user to fill in all the fields

Auth.auth().signIn(withEmail: email, password: password) { [weak self] result, error in
if let error = error {
// Show an alert to inform the user about the login error
} else {
// Navigate to the main screen

In this code snippet, we retrieve the user’s email and password from the text fields and use the Auth.auth().signIn(withEmail:password:completion:) method to authenticate the user with Firebase. If the login is successful, we can navigate the user to the main screen of the app. Otherwise, we show an alert to inform them about the login error.

Finally, don’t forget to connect the IBActions of the login and registration buttons to their respective functions in the view controller.


In conclusion, creating a login page in Xcode using Firebase is a straightforward process that can greatly enhance the security and user experience of your iOS applications. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily implement a robust login system and handle user authentication in your app.

Remember to test your login page thoroughly and consider implementing additional security measures, such as two-factor authentication, to further protect your users’ data. Happy coding!
