WPMU DEV Supports secure one-click login, or Single Sign-On (SSO), from the Hub, for all connected sites. SSO allows members to access their connected sites securely without having to sign in separately to each site. It is particularly handy when managing multiple sites.

SSO is optional and members must enable the feature individually for each connected site. SSO only works if a site is connected to the Hub, but you should try to keep all your sites connected to the Hub at all times, anyway.

Once enabled, you can access any connected site from the Hub by clicking the WP ADMIN button for that site. This video shows how SSO simplifies the login process.

5.1 SSO is secure

Link to chapter 1

SSO uses your WPMU DEV API, not your admin username and password, to access your connected sites. Your WordPress admin credentials are never stored by us for any reason.

That said, you should always enable two-factor authentication on all your sites using our Superhero-quality security plugin, Defender.

5.2 Enable SSO for a new Site

Each time you create a new site or when you connect an existing site to your WPMU DEV account for the first time, you will be given an opportunity to enable SSO by clicking the Enable secure One-click WP Logins checkbox when prompted to enter your WordPress credentials.

5.3 Manage SSO from the Dashboard Plugin

When activating the WPMU DEV Dashboard plugin you can enable SSO simply by selecting the Enable SSO checkbox below the username and password fields when prompted to submit your credentials.

You can enable or disable SSO for any site at any time from the Dashboard Settings control panel here WPMU DEV > Settings.

Click the Single Sign-on slider to enable/disable SSO for that site.
