    If you are under same domain, you can read the WordPress auth cookie, or even load WordPress enviroment and use WordPress functions like is_user_logged_in(). If you are in different domains, there are several options, like oAuth, web token authentication, etc. Unfortunately, not sure how to answer your question in a more specific way. – cybmeta Apr 6 '18 at 8:26
  • For an application I'm doing the opposite once logged in the application the user is automatically logged in Wordpress with wp_set_auth_cookie function – Core972 Apr 6 '18 at 8:37
