Single Sign-On with Xello

userXello AdminTime2 minutes

Single sign-on (SSO) is a time-saving tool that allows users to access multiple applications with one set of login credentials.

With Xello SSO, students and educators can log in to a portal, such as Google, a Learning Management System (LMS), or a Management Information System (MIS), and then access their Xello account without a separate login. In the background, Xello receives data to verify the identity of the user and securely authenticate their access.

Watch the video below for a high-level overview of what SSO is and how it works:
