New Platform Simplifies Mobile Password Integration
Writing & Research: Emily Czenszak
“Your username and password are incorrect.”
If you are triggered by these words, you’ve most likely experienced ‘password rage’. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. One-third of people have admitted to lashing out when these dreaded words appear on their device—and rightfully so. Between work servers, online banking, social media, and more, the average person has to remember over 20 passwords. While these passwords are implemented to protect our online identity, they become counter-productive when they inhibit us from accessing our own accounts. This frustration leads to poor password practices. However, in our new digital lifestyles, cybersecurity is more important than ever as one simple password hack could unravel our whole world.
When it comes to our confidential documents, we expect businesses to be highly secure. However, most password frustration comes from company logins. To avoid important information from being hacked, some companies implement a 90 day password change. Yet, after so long, people forget which variations of their password they have or haven’t used and which they’re currently using. This causes them to lock themselves out of the system and waste time. As we know, in the working world, time is money. While a seemingly minuscule thing, the management of multiple passwords wastes companies roughly $206,000 a year.
People avoid adding to this repertoire of passwords by either leaving their personal devices password-free or using one consistent password for all platforms. Throughout our lives we are told to make passwords complex to thwart any hackers from stealing our information. However, when these complicated passwords come back to bite us, we opt for easily memorable passwords. While this method suffices for trivial documents, this lack of security becomes an issue with the recent business shift to remote work. With companies moving from in-office to remote work, the password model no longer fits the purpose of security in businesses. Personal computers are much more susceptible to hackers; thus, making confidential documents and customer contact information accessible to those in search of it.
To eliminate these problems, Single sign-on (SSO) permits users to utilize one set of login credentials to access multiple applications. Migrating to a cloud-based identity for desktop applications has proven to go smoothly. However, many want a unified authentication experience across all platforms. With the increase of mobile use for work purposes, SSO for mobile is a necessity. However, the complexities associated with installing it can be intimidating, prohibiting companies from implementing SSO in their mobile apps.
The creators of Appdome understood the need for SSO and these challenges hindering people from implementing it into their mobile devices. By utilizing cloud identities instead of usernames and passwords, Appdome for SSO+ delivers native SSO to mobile instantly without complexities of SAML, OAuth, and OpenID Connect.
We should not have to compromise security for accessibility—and now we don’t have to. With SSO, there is no need to stress about forgotten passwords or simplifying them in order to remember them. Appdome for SSO+ makes installing it effortless, allowing workers to keep up with their fast-paced lifestyle.
