How to Login with email or phone number in Laravel

In this post, you will be learning how to login with email id or phone/mobile number or username in laravel.

Let's get started.

Step 1: Install your laravel application and get your database connected and migrate the tables.

Step 2: Create a migration file as follows

php artisan make:migration add_phone_to_users_table

After successful of creating migration, paste the below code in your last migration file. (2022_10_30_102257_add_phone_to_users_table.php)

public function up()
        Schema::table('users', function (Blueprint $table) {

     * Reverse the migrations.
     * @return void
    public function down()
        Schema::table('users', function (Blueprint $table) {

Step 3: Go to the login.blade.php file in following path: resources/views/auth/login.blade.php 

In this file, change the <input type="email" /> to <input type="text" /> for the email input field as follows:

<input id="email" type="text" class="form-control @error('email') is-invalid @enderror" name="email" value="{{ old('email') }}" required autocomplete="email" autofocus>

Step 4: Go to LoginController.php in the following path: app/http/controllers/auth/LoginController.php 

Paste the below code in your LoginController.php file

protected function credentials(Request $request)

        return ['phone'=>$request->get('email'),'password'=>$request->get('password')];
    elseif (filter_var($request->get('email'), FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)) {

        return ['email' => $request->get('email'), 'password'=>$request->get('password')];

    return ['username' => $request->get('email'), 'password'=>$request->get('password')];
