  • from the website’s comment forms if Enable Social Login for option is enabled for WordPress Comments form.

    If WordPress Membership option is deactivated, an unregistered website visitor will not be able to register via social buttons from default registration page (wp-login.php?action=register) or default multisite registration page (wp-signup.php) as these pages will be unreachable.
