// Other aliases…
'Socialite' => Laravel\Socialite\Facades\Socialite::class,

Get Secrets from Linkedin

    'redirect' => '',

Go to app/User.php and set fillable property put the below code here :

protected $fillable = [
         'name', 'email', 'password', 'provider', 'provider_id'

Next step, Go to app/database/create_users_table.php and put the below code here :

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
class CreateUsersTable extends Migration
     * Run the migrations.
     * @return void
    public function up()
        Schema::create('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
     * Reverse the migrations.
     * @return void
    public function down()

We need to create authencation using below command :

php artisan make:auth

Before we run php artisan migrate command go to app/providers/AppServiceProvider.php and put the below code :

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
function boot()

Next migrate the table using the below command :

php artisan migrate

Make Route

We will create two routes in web.php file. Go to app/routes/web.php file and create two below routes here :

 Route::get('/auth/redirect/{provider}', 'SocialController@redirect');
 Route::get('/callback/{provider}', 'SocialController@callback');

Create Controller

We need to create a controller name SocialController. Use the below command and create Controller :

php artisan make:controller SocialController

After successfully create controller go to app/controllers/SocialController.php and put the below code :

namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Validator,Redirect,Response,File;
use Socialite;
use App\User;
class SocialController extends Controller
    public function redirect($provider)
        return Socialite::driver($provider)->redirect();
    public function callback($provider)
        $getInfo = Socialite::driver($provider)->user();
        $user = $this->createUser($getInfo,$provider);
        return redirect()->to('/home');
   function createUser($getInfo,$provider){
     $user = User::where('provider_id', $getInfo->id)->first();
     if (!$user) {
         $user = User::create([
            'name'     => $getInfo->name,
            'email'    => $getInfo->email,
            'provider' => $provider,
            'provider_id' => $getInfo->id
      return $user;
