Single Sign-On with Google or Microsoft Accounts

Single Sign-On (SSO) with Google or Microsoft Accounts simplifies the user login experience for SIMS by integrating with widely used authentication platforms. This integration streamlines access to SIMS services, allowing users to securely log in using their school-authorised Google or Microsoft accounts. 

By leveraging existing credentials, SSO eliminates the need for separate SIMS-specific usernames and passwords, saving time and reducing potential login issues. This seamless authentication process not only enhances convenience but also strengthens security by utilising robust authentication protocols provided by Google and Microsoft.
