Clerk supports multiple authentication strategies so that you can implement the strategy that makes sense for your users. You can use Clerk's Account Portal, pre-built components, or build your own custom flows.


Clerk's configuration settings affect how the users of your application can sign up and sign in and which properties are editable via their user profile. You can also manage user sessions, control who gets access to your application, and customize the email & SMS messages that are sent by Clerk during authentication flows. All of these settings can be found under the User & Authentication section in the Clerk Dashboard.

Check out our detailed guide for information on how to set up your application.
