SSO: Single sign-on

UMass Dartmouth utilizes a campus-based, single sign-on system.

What is single sign-on?

Single sign-on (SSO) allows you to log in once with your UMassD logon and access multiple systems. For UMassD-based systems (e.g., 25Live, Corsair Jobs), you will not be prompted to log in again during that session.

Tips to protect your account and personal information

  • Log out of the system
  • Log out of the portal
  • Close your browser

This will ensure a secure and complete logout of your single sign-on session. 

Although logging in through SSO is secure, it is extremely important to protect your password.

Systems that currently participate in campus-based or system SSO

  • 25Live
  • Blogs
  • COIN
  • Facilities service request (Tririga work order system)
  • HRDirect
  • Office 365
  • Parking

Multifactor Authentication (MFA)

The goal of MFA is to create a layered defense to make it more difficult for an unauthorized person to gain access to your accounts. 

  • Multifactor authentication is a control that strengthens security by requiring two or more methods to verify your identity.
  • These factors can include something you know (username) along with something you have (a smartphone app).
  • MFA is popular with on-line banking and many cloud services (Apple, Google, Microsoft).
