Wave is built on top of the default Laravel Authentication and includes a few additional features such as email verification, forgot password, username login, and of course billing upon registration.


By default users will need to purchase in order to register for an account; however, you can open up free registration by visiting the admin settings /admin/settings, clicking on the Billing Tab, toggling off Require Credit Card Up Front, and save.


Now your users will be able to register for a free account.


After a user has created an account through your application, they can login by visiting the /login route. After successfully logging in the user will then be redirected to their dashboard.

If you have just installed Wave you can login with the default email [email protected] and password as password

Email verification

You may choose to require your users to verify their email before signing up for a free trial. To enable this you will need to visit the admin settings page at /admin/settings, click on the Auth tab and then toggle Verify Email during Sign Up


Login with email or username

Optionally you may choose to allow users to login with their email address or their username. You can also change this in the Auth tab of your admin settings (see screenshot above).

Forgot password

Users can click on the forgot password link on the login page and they will be taken to a form where they can enter their email address.The user will then receive an email with a link to your application where they can reset their password.

Quick note on Email Verification and Forgot Password, your application must be configured to send email before these features can be used.

The simplest way to test emails in development mode is to use Mailtrap. You can sign up for a free account and then enter your mailtrap credentials in your .env file:
