change laravel redirect url when not authenticated

In this simple post, I will share with you how to change the Laravel default redirect URL when not authenticated or not log in? The default Laravel installation is the login route named "login" but if you change it it will cause an error when visiting the page with an unauthenticated account. See sample below:


change laravel redirect url when not authenticated


To fix this issue when naming your login with a different name we need to update the Authenticate class which we can found in this directory App\Http\Middleware and you will see this default below:


* Get the path the user should be redirected to when they are not authenticated.
* @param  \Illuminate\Http\Request  $request
* @return string|null
protected function redirectTo($request)
    if (! $request->expectsJson()) {
        return route('login');


Next, we will change the login to your login name route, mine is "".

return route('');


And after updating the code it will not occur the error when visiting the restricted routes for unauthenticated users.


I hope you find your answer to this post. Cheers :)
