Although article is inspired from personal dev experience and I tried my best to keep things objective, it's still non-negligible that I'm one of the creators of Logto (an auth product).

I’ve seen a lot of developers asking questions like “Should I build my own auth for my app?”. While the answer cannot be a simple "Yes" or "No", I’d like to write an article to breakdown the implementation and demonstrate the pros and cons to help you decide.
