What is a single sign-on?
By utilizing Single Sign-On (SSO), you can use one set of credentials to log into two or more applications. It works just like your Google account where with the same login credentials, you can access your emails, calendar, drive and the other apps.
Single Sign-on is a useful element as it brings better user experience and convenience. In LiveAgent, customers can utilize SSO with other PHP based web applications like WordPress or Magento.
For example in WordPress, after the administrator of WordPress logs in, he/she can access LiveAgent Agent panel directly from their admin menu.

In this video, the speaker talks about the problem of having too many passwords and the insecure ways people try to manage them, such as using Post-it notes or insecure files. The speaker suggests an alternative solution through single sign-on, where users only have to remember one password to access all of their systems. The single sign-on manager remembers the passwords for each system, and multi-factor authentication can be used for added security. This solution improves security, saves costs by reducing the need for password resets, and improves the user experience.
