How to use Didomi's SSO?

Didomi SSO is a premium feature. However, you can benefit from one free month. Do not hesitate to contact your Customer Success Manager. 

What is SSO?

👉Acronym

SSO = Single Sign-On

👉Definition

SSO is a method of authentication to a platform. 

SSO (Single Sign-On) is an authentication and authorisation method that enables users to easily access multiple applications and websites by eliminating the need to have separate credentials.

Didomi's SSO is based on SAML 2.0 standard protocol. It allows your users to sign on to the Didomi Console using your own identity provider, like Google, Azure Active Directory, Okta, One Login and many more.

Simplified User Access Management

SSO feature provides a number of benefits and addresses several issues.

  1. Security: SSO ensures better security of user credentials by providing a standardized and unique method of identification.
  2. Simplified user management: Security administrators will no longer have to manually manage the credentials of each user.
  3. Better user experience: Eliminate credential management fatigue with a single sign-on method. SSO allows you to keep the same credentials on each support, which saves a lot of time when you switch from one tool to another.
