Things to Know About Single Sign-on Solution
Online resources are increasing alarmingly and so the need of creating accounts. We have lots of online accounts and other important private resources that we need to protect from the phishing attacks. One of the best ways of protecting the online resources is using passwords. Passwords are the barrier that protects user’s account from the attacks. Every website and application require a different combination of passwords, some want the combination of a password starting with a capital letter and must have a number in it, some demands a password with characters more than 6 letters and so on. Ultimately, the users have to follow such demands and create lots of credentials.
