Single Sign-on (SSO) | Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) | Okta | Managing Accounts/Password
What is Single Sign-On (SSO)?
- The Single Sign On (SSO) process allows users to sign in to one service, Okta, to access all your apps. No more remembering all your different password and username combinations to get to the apps that you need to get your work done.
How does SSO work?
- SSO allows you to sign in to your Okta Dashboard and launch any of your web apps without having to enter any other additional credentials. Okta manages all your application credentials and securely logs you into your apps.

- Clear your browser cookies, cache, and history. In Chrome, you can do this by pressing:
- If you need to switch between different accounts, try using different browsers, or using an incognito window.
