Customizable sessions, Bitcoin and Moonbeam support & more
Magic newsletter #9
Sean here with the latest updates from the team.
Next time you head to Magic, there will be some fresh new features in the dashboard and across login methods, blockchains, and data privacy and compliance. All purpose-built to help you improve user experience and reach new audiences.
Custom session lengths ⚡️
We’re introducing a no-code way to customize session length, so users won’t have to log in as frequently.
Before, user sessions were fixed to 7 days by default.
Now you can choose how long users stay authenticated, up to 90 days.
Also works with privacy browsers and browsers with 3rd party cookies disabled!
Tailor sessions to your users’ preferences in seconds, right from your Magic dashboard.

Bitcoin and Moonbeam support ⛓
We believe future-proof infrastructure should be natively compatible with, well, the future of the internet. That’s why Magic supports 18 modern blockchains...and counting!
Now you can build dApps with Bitcoin and on Moonbeam.
To integrate with Bitcoin, check out this doc.
The team at Carrot hit record growth with Magic auth, calling it the “easiest, lowest friction way to sign up, especially if you’re entirely new to crypto.”
Moonbeam is a smart contract parachain that serves as the easiest entry point for Ethereum projects to the Polkadot ecosystem.
This doc covers how to connect to Moonbeam.
Social logins for Android apps 🌐
Good news for Android fans, social logins are now available. Installation is fast and intuitive.
Continuous improvements ✨
We’ve shipped a UI update to Magic’s auth overlay, which is now restyled as a modal. This familiar pattern should be a bit more intuitive for users while also providing support for some exciting new features rolling out over the coming months.
Community vibes 🙌🏼
Our latest Close-up Magic meetup was all about Svelte. In case you missed it, here’s the recap and recording.
Next up, we’re inviting Jaye Harrill, Communications Manager for Quantstamp, to discuss how communities in the Web 3.0 space have evolved, her experience in organizing events and communities for Ethereum, and more.
Save your spot and join us tomorrow, Sept. 30th at 11am PT.
🎉 Surprise, we hosted our first-ever Community Call! These are intimate gatherings where members of the Magic community can get a sneak peek of what’s on the horizon for Magic, discuss forward-thinking tech with Magicians, share their feedback on the product, and more.
