The IdentityCredential interface of the Federated Credential Management API (FedCM) represents a user identity credential arising from a successful federated sign-in.

Credential IdentityCredential

Instance properties

Inherits properties from its ancestor, Credential.

IdentityCredential.token Experimental

Returns a Promise that resolves with the Credential instance that matches the provided parameters.


Relying parties (RPs) can call navigator.credentials.get() with the identity option to make a request for users to sign in to the RP via an identity provider (IdP), using identity federation. A typical request would look like this:

async function signIn() {
  const identityCredential = await navigator.credentials.get({
    identity: {
      providers: [
          configURL: "https://accounts.idp.example/config.json",
          clientId: "********",
          nonce: "******",

A successful navigator.credentials.get() call that includes an identity option fulfills with an IdentityCredential instance.

Check out Federated Credential Management API (FedCM) for more details on how this works. This call will start off the sign-in flow described in FedCM sign-in flow.
