OAuth & Social Sign-on

Identity controls are an important factor in developing sound security practices for your organization. Social logins (aka social sign-on) are a form of single sign-on and are based on OAuth technology. They are offered by all major network portals and are considered a convenient and secure way to quickly and easily log in to new services.

For more information, we recommend taking a quick look at Wikipedia (SSO) or Wikipedia (OAuth).

Social Sign-on

Social logins (also social sign-on) are a form of single sign-on, or SSO for short. The services represent an important building block in the value chain of the Internet. They enable low-threshold access for users to third-party services by eliminating the need for repeated identification. These alternative logon processes are offered and used where registration would normally be required. SSO replaces this almost completely, and instead of filling out form fields, the process can be reduced to a few clicks. As a rule, you do not even need a keyboard for this.

Visitors to a website who are thinking of applying for a user account do not have to think about a username or a suitable password combination. Spelling errors are proactively counteracted, double entries of passwords are eliminated altogether.

Because of the speed, the easily understandable sequence of steps, as well as the fact that you use a medium that you have already trusted in advance by using other forms of communication (Google, Apple ...), makes the popularity. The most popular SSO providers are Google, Micosoft, LinkedIn, Facebook/meta, Apple, Twitter Amazon and netID.

Should you decide to use one of the provided Social Logins at ayondo, a technical process is initiated where you explicitly confirm the login or registration process via an authorization dialog. The process itself takes only a few moments and subsequently you are logged in to the platform.

We recommend that all users read the Privacy Policy ("DSHW") in advance. You will find this as a link directly in the login dialog. In the DSHW we provide you with further information. As usual, you can trust that we will only collect the data that is necessary for the provision of services. You yourself always have a choice.

If you prefer to choose the classic way via an input form, that is of course also available to you.

Can I create multiple user accounts with the same email address?
User accounts have a 1-to-1 relationship with the email address used for registration. This means that it is not possible to have multiple separate accounts with the same email address. For users who have created a user account via email, this is the only way to log in. For users who have selected the social login option, exclusively this way is available for login.

Another note for all users who have a user account with ayondo, but can remember neither the email nor the self-assigned username, should contact customer service with confidence. We carefully check the identity information and try to help you quickly. If you do not want to wait, you can always create a new user account.

Sounds interesting. Where can I find the social login at ayondo?

When you are on the login page to your user account, you will see a small panel with icons below the button to confirm the login. If you click on the logo of the respective company there, a confirmation dialog will open, which will guide you through the further process steps.

Is there any way I can cancel the authorization I previously gave?

This is possible without any problems. To do so, you simply need to go to the settings of your user account at the respective social network and revoke the authorization there. Using LinkedIn as an example, we will describe the process once
