@interface PFAnonymousUtils : NSObject
Provides utility functions for working with Anonymously logged-in users. Anonymous users have some unique characteristics:
- Anonymous users don’t need a user name or password.
- Once logged out, an anonymous user cannot be recovered.
- When the current user is anonymous, the following methods can be used to switch to a different user or convert the anonymous user into a regular one:
- signUp converts an anonymous user to a standard user with the given username and password. Data associated with the anonymous user is retained.
- logIn switches users without converting the anonymous user. Data associated with the anonymous user will be lost.
- Service logIn (e.g. Facebook, Twitter) will attempt to convert the anonymous user into a standard user by linking it to the service. If a user already exists that is linked to the service, it will instead switch to the existing user.
- Service linking (e.g. Facebook, Twitter) will convert the anonymous user into a standard user by linking it to the service.
