However, if they are already logged in to your website, creating an HYVOR account is unnecessary and tedious. You can set up Single Sign-on (SSO) to allow users to log in and comment using the account they already have on your system.

For example, if the user edits their name on your website, his SSO profile will be automatically updated when he logs in again to the comments system.

/sso/delete-userendpoint to delete their account.
