Implementing Authorization in Angular


Authentication is a crucial aspect of web application development, ensuring that only authorized users can access certain features or resources. In this blog, we will explore how to implement authentication in Angular. By the end of this blog, you’ll have a solid understanding of how to integrate authentication into your Angular applications.

Setting up a New Angular Project

To get started, we need to set up a new Angular project. We can use the Angular CLI (Command Line Interface) to create a new project skeleton by running a simple command.

ng new my-auth-project

Navigate into the project directory:

cd my-auth-project

User Authentication

Before diving into implementation details, it’s important to choose an authentication approach. Angular offers various options, such as JSON Web Tokens (JWT), OAuth 2.0, or using a third-party authentication service like Firebase Authentication. Select an approach that best suits your project requirements.

Creating an Authentication Service

To handle authentication-related functionalities, create an authentication service. This service will encapsulate methods for login, registration, logout, and storing user information.

Implementing a Login Page

Create a login component and design a login form to capture user credentials. Use Angular’s built-in forms module for handling form validation and data binding. In the login component, call the authentication service’s login method to authenticate the user.

Handling User Registration

Similar to the login page, create a registration component and a registration form to capture user details. Implement validation and call the registration method in the authentication service to create a new user account.

Protecting Routes with Guards

To restrict access to certain routes, implement route guards. These guards can prevent unauthorized users from accessing protected pages. Create an authentication guard that checks whether the user is authenticated and redirects them to the login page if not.

Managing User Sessions and Tokens

To maintain user sessions, store authentication tokens securely. Angular provides mechanisms such as local storage or session storage for token storage. Upon successful login, store the token and user details. On subsequent visits, check the token’s validity to determine the user’s authentication status.

Adding Logout Functionality

Implement a logout method in the authentication service to clear user-related data and tokens from storage. After logout, redirect the user to the login page or a desired location.

Displaying User Information

Once authenticated, display user information throughout the application. Create a user profile component that fetches and displays user details from the authentication service.


Implementing authentication in Angular is a vital aspect of developing secure web applications. By following the steps outlined in this blog, you can build a robust authentication system that ensures authorized access and protects sensitive data.
