Hi Manuel,
The class is really fine, it's working perfectly fine but I found an issue with the single sign on process using oauth. When any user authenticates himself/herself using any provider e.g. google or facebook, they are also logged in to the provider at the same time. If you open the gmail or facebook in a new tab in the same browser, it will take you to the home page. Do you think you should provide a logout handler function which will also signout the user from the provider site i.e., if i am logged in using google and call the logout handler then it should log me out from google too.

As far as I know, the OAuth protocol does not provide support for what you want.

Tokens are granted to let your application access the server API even when the user is not present.

If your application wants to stop using the granted token, there is a standard way to revoke a token in OAuth 2.0, but that does not make the user be logged off from the provider.
