What Is Single Sign On (SSO)?

Single sign on (SSO) lets individuals use one set of login credentials (username and password) to access multiple applications. SSO is used by many organisations and individuals to reduce the number of login credentials managed and improve security.

Universities and higher education institutions who use the cloud-based identity and access management service, Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), can choose to set up SSO for students and staff through Legend.

With SSO, students and staff can access the Legend digital member services portal and the Legend app using their existing university login credentials.

This brings many benefits for universities, including centralised user account management, fewer lost passwords, better control over access, and higher engagement. For students and staff, benefits include fewer passwords to remember, simpler password resets, better security, and faster access to fitness facilities and activities.
