Feature update: Single sign on

Over the past year we’ve had a fair amount of our clients asking “Do you have a single sign on feature?“ 

We got pretty tired of answering “No.” and having to think to ourselves ‘uh.. why DON’T we have a single sign on feature?!’ - so we started building one!

SSO eliminates the need for your affiliates having to create seperate Tapfiliate accounts.

With this feature, platforms like ours are able to share information with different websites, including yours. SSO automates part of the log in process, this way, users who log into your website can get logged into our platform automatically. 

Does this sound familiar to you? You have - without a doubt - encountered SSO while using platforms like Facebook or Google.

Without going into too much depth: **

The way that the single sign on works is by exchanging user data securely through the use of JSON Web Tokens. Don’t know what that is? Don’t worry, you don’t really need to.

If you do want to get down into the nitty gritty of SSO and JWT we recommend reading our knowledge base article which dives into the technical aspects of SSO, and this article by JWT.

The bottom line: This feature is one that’s going to improve the overall user experience for your affiliates by a long shot.
