What is SSO for? 

Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication process allowing students to access multiple applications or services with a single login credentials. This means that once a student logs in to one application, they can access other connected applications without having to log in again.

Uteach’s SSO integration helps to enhance security, simplify user management, and improve the overall user experience, as it reduces the need for multiple logins.

Integrating Single Sign-On comes with many benefits, including:

  • Give students the opportunity to access your Uteach school and other connected applications with a single set of credentials.
  • Simplify the login process, reducing the need for multiple usernames and passwords.
  • Manage user access and permissions through your identity provider.
