With the number of different online accounts we have these days, remembering the password for every single one can seem close to impossible. Technology is supposed to make our lives easier, and single sign-on does just that!
What is Single Sign-on?
Single sign-on creates and stores encrypted passwords for your third-party apps and websites. A common example of this is Google. If you have your single sign-on turned on, then when you log into Google on a computer, you will also be logged in to the other accounts that have saved your passwords, such as YouTube or Google Drive.
How does single sign-on improve your experience?
1. Eliminates the need to remember multiple passwords – We're told not to use the same password for all of our accounts for security reasons. Due to this, you may find yourself searching through notes, password books, etc. for what seems like forever to find one username and password. Single sign-on allows you to remember one set of credentials to access multiple accounts, saving you time and frustration.
2. Keeps your information secure – Security is a high priority when it comes to your sign-on credentials and accounts. Single sign-on can help to minimize phishing attacks and ensures that your information is secure. When you're using single sign-on, there is a verification process between websites to authenticate the identity of the person signing into the account.
3. Saves time and effort – We all have certain websites we log into daily, whether the account is for work or personal use. Re-entering your password every time you sign in can become a nuisance. And with this technology, it's now unnecessary. Single sign-on allows you to save time by not having to constantly re-enter passwords.
