Kakao Connect

To use Kakao Talk or Kakao Sync as a social login provider, you will need an App ID and App Secret from your Kakao app. You’ll then need to copy these keys into your ReachFive settings.

This docs detail how to create a Kakao App and connect it to your ReachFive account.

What profile information is collected by ReachFive?

We are able to retrieve the following information from the user’s KakaoTalk account into their ReachFive account:

  • KakaoTalk ID

  • KakaoTalk name

  • KakaoTalk profile nickname

  • KakaoTalk username

  • KakaoTalk profile image

  • KakaoTalk account email

  • User’s Birthday (as listed on in KakaoTalk profile)

  • User’s gender (as listed on in KakaoTalk profile)

  • User’s phone number (as listed on in KakaoTalk profile)

  • Connecting Information, also known as CI, hosted as part of the provider_metadata object (includes verification and timestamp)

    See the provider_metadata object for more details.
  • Age range for KakaoTalk user

    See the provider_metadata object for more details.
  • User consents collected from the Kakao REST API.

    In order to receive the user consents from Kakao into ReachFive, you need to ensure that during integration, ReachFive consents are assigned the opt-in type and that the consent’s key matches the Kakao consent tag. If these things are done correctly, consents are then received when the user logs in using Kakao for the first time.
