What is Single Sign-On (SSO)?
Single sign-on (SSO) is an authentication method that enables you to access multiple applications with one login and one set of credentials.
How it works
If you choose to use single sign-on with TextFree, your login information from an outside (3rd) party will be used for both:
- Creating an account.
- Logging into an existing account.
You have the following single sign-on options with TextFree mobile:
- Apple (available for iOS users only)
Note: Facebook is not an available single sign-on option for mobile at this time & can only be used with TextFree Web (see below for more info).
The following single sign-on options are available for TextFree Web sign-up and log-in:
- Facebook* (see note below)
If you use Facebook to create a Web account initially but have plans to use TextFree mobile, you cannot use Facebook to log into mobile and will be limited to using only TextFree Web. For assistance or if you want to switch SSO options on your account, contact us.
Resource: How to create a TextFree account
- If you created an account with one SSO provider, but wish to change to another (e.g. signed up for TextFree with Google, but want to switch to Facebook) you will have to create a new account.
- If you'd like to transfer your TextFree number to the new SSO provider, contact Support for assistance.
- We cannot assist you with password recovery for SSO accounts. Login information for these account types is strictly handled with your SSO provider (Apple, Google, Facebook) since we don't store this information.
