E-Authentication: Making Trust Possible


Home > Frequently Asked Questions

question icon What is single sign-on?

answer icon Single sign-on is a useful feature of E-Authentication that allows you to log-in to your Identity Provider once, and access multiple online government services without logging in again. Use of single sign-on does not share any additional information with the government. If you attempt to access an online government service that does not work with your identity credential, you will be requested to log-in to another Identity Provider. This web site will help you quickly find an Identity Provider that works with the online government service you wish to access.
