Single Sign-On (SSO) Login

Safeguard your organization’s Workspace with Single Sign-On (SSO).

We’re transitioning to a new UI, and are in the process of updating our Webflow University content.

Single Sign-On (SSO) is a password-authentication strategy that simplifies the authentication process by allowing users to log in once with a single set of credentials. Webflow customers on Enterprise Workspace plans can enable SSO on their Workspace so all Workspace members can log in via an Identity Provider (IdP). 

Note: SSO is only available for customers on Enterprise Workspace plans. 

In this article, you’ll learn:

  3. How to set up SSO

What is SSO? 

Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication is a password-authentication strategy that allows users to securely access multiple related applications or systems with a single set of credentials. 

The primary benefit of SSO is that it gives organizations centralized control over who has access to their systems and the level of access each individual has. SSO simplifies team members’ experiences, reduces password fatigue, and improves organization security.

The option to log in with SSO is highlighted below the standard login form on Webflow’s login page.

SSO considerations

SSO is available on Webflow as either an optional or required sign-on method. When SSO is optional, Workspace members can sign in to your Workspace via IdP or with standard login credentials. When SSO is required, Workspace members must be authenticated via IdP before they can access your Workspace. Workspace members will still be able to access their personal Workspace with standard login credentials. 

If some Workspace members have different email domains not managed through your IdP (e.g., freelancers, agencies, etc.), we recommend setting SSO to optional. This ensures they can continue to log in to your Workspace with standard login credentials. Workspace guest sign-on is not affected by SSO settings. 

Note: SSO is not supported for content editors
