What Is Single Sign-On (SSO)

Quick and easy-to-follow introduction for Google Workspace administrators

Introduction to SSO

  • Single sign-on (SSO) allows you to access multiple different services using just one set of login details.

How SSO works

  • Google Workspace provides you with a login page that gives you access to all integrated services, such as Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar, and more.
  • Instead of having a separate login and password for each service, SSO securely allows you to only need one.

Use Google Workspace as an SSO Provider

  • You can use Google Workspace as the SSO provider for other services, which means you can use your Google account’s login info to sign in to non-Google services.

Use a third-party SSO provider in Google Workspace

  • You can also do the opposite, and log in to Google Workspace using login details for other services.
