Microsoft Tips, Tricks, and Updates: Single Sign-On

These days, each of us has an ever-expanding collection of user names and passwords that we use in both our personal and professional lives. Password management tools make things easier, but it still requires a log-in each time.

However, many third-party applications allow you to use one account (we use Microsoft) as the authentication mechanism. That means you only need to be logged into that one main account to quickly, easily, and securely log into the others. It’s called Single Sign-On.

Added bonus: Since this capability has to be enabled on a corporate basis (i.e., an individual in your company can’t do it for themselves), you can remove across the board access for an offboarded employee by shutting down just one account.
