Are you facing problems while authenticating yourself to any websites? Is it taking a long time to fill registration forms? Do you have many websites that you need to login? If your answer is a big “Yes” to all questions, then you are at right place, my friend. Here I am going to explain, how you can save yourself from the bombardment of questions that are being asked in the registration forms and how you can login to the number of websites that are related with same organization and business in just a click of the mouse that is too by only using a single set of password and username.
Sounds great, right? Now, you are thinking how is it possible for you to login multiple websites by having only single ID credential. Without wasting time I am going to introduce you to a revolutionary method in the field of registration that Single Sign-On(SSO)Technology.
As the name indicates, single sign-on is the key to authenticate multiple websites using a single ID credential. SSO makes logging in to any web application and website easy and fast. With only a single set of username and password, user can get the access to multiple websites.
Some of the reasons why it is very important for both users and businesses are as follows.
Removes Password Fatigue
Without single sign-on users have to remember a long list of passwords. For each website, there should be a different username and password. And remembering passwords are not easy. Honestly speaking, I hate passwords and I am sure you also. Thanks to the SSO technology, it saves users from memorizing the passwords by limiting them to remember only single username and password.
Improves User Experience (UX)
User experience, one of the most important factors that directly affects business sales. By removing password fatigue and allowing users to login to multiple websites of an organization using one ID credential, SSO improves the user experience. Better the user experience, more the chances of conversion and sale.
Reduces Help-Desk Cost
Businesses have to spend a lot of income in managing user’s digital identity and credentials. According to a survey, it is found that 20-30 percent of total support calls are password related. Single sign-on saves IT administrators from this by reducing the number of support calls for requesting passwords.
Boost Up Productivity
By reducing support help desk cost and the time and effort spent by IT administrators to manage the identities, SSO helps them to focus more on other related work. This leads to boost up productivity. Users can also explore more web content, this will increase the chances of conversion.
So, friends, now I think you got to know why I called Single Sign-On technology as a “superhero” in the field of authentication. If you have any question in your mind, feel free to ask in the comments below.
