Manually integrate Authentication into your Android application.

Android Manual Installation

The following steps are only required if you are using React Native <= 0.59 or need to manually integrate the library.

1. Update Gradle Settings

Add the following to your projects /android/settings.gradle file:

include ':@react-native-firebase_auth'
project(':@react-native-firebase_auth').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, './../node_modules/@react-native-firebase/auth/android')

2. Update Gradle Dependencies

Add the React Native Firebase module dependency to your /android/app/build.gradle file:

dependencies {
  // ...
  implementation project(path: ":@react-native-firebase_auth")

3. Add package to the Android Application

Import and apply the React Native Firebase module package to your /android/app/src/main/java/**/MainApplication.java file:

Import the package:

import io.invertase.firebase.auth.ReactNativeFirebaseAuthPackage;

Add the package to the registry:

protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
  return Arrays.asList(
    new MainReactPackage(),
    new ReactNativeFirebaseAuthPackage(),

4. Rebuild the project

Once the above steps have been completed, rebuild your Android project:

npx react-native run-android
