What is OIDC & How Google, Apple & Microsoft OIDC Can Be Used On Your Site
75% of Americans, according to a Google survey, struggle to track their passwords. The same survey says that 66% use the same password for multiple online accounts.
The demand for convenience in today’s digital world is increasing. But unfortunately, individuals and companies are prioritizing it over security measures. Thus, we see a rise in data breaches, identity thefts, and more.
Adopting robust identity verification mechanisms is getting critical with every passing minute. To stay ahead, companies have to ensure top-notch security and privacy of data.
OIDC is at the forefront of modern-day authentication technology. It helps businesses and startups to create a seamless, convenient, and secure authentication experience for their customers.
In this piece, we’ll introduce you to OIDC, how it works, its benefits, types, and how we at Vault Vision can help you integrate it to enhance your company’s security & user experience.
According to Google, 24% of Americans have used the following common passwords:
We know it gets tough to remember a dozen of passwords. That’s why people just type in the most common words.
But what if your users didn’t have to create a separate username & password for your website or app? Wouldn’t that be convenient and secure?
OIDC stands for OpenID Connect. An authentication protocol that enables users to identify themselves using their existing accounts.
With OIDC built-in, a website or an app lets a user verify & authenticate their identity using services like Google, Microsoft, and Apple. This way, they don’t need to create a new account from scratch and remember its details.
How OIDC Works
According to one Microsoft study, 44 million users had the same password for multiple accounts. Thanks to OIDC, businesses no longer have to worry about their users setting weak & re-used passwords.
With OIDC, your customers can sign-up or log in to your service using their Google, Microsoft, or Apple account. They just need to click the relevant button, confirm & choose their Google/Microsoft/Apple account, and it’s all set & done!
Once OIDC authentication is done, your application will receive a unique identifier from us as the OIDC provider. Then, it’ll be used to associate this customer identity with access to appropriate resources.
Benefits of OIDC
Enhanced User Experience
OIDC’s seamless authentication process greatly enhances the overall user experience. Thanks to OIDC, users can log in/signup for a service with a single click or tap – no need to re-enter credentials.
This leads to higher engagement, less friction, and happy customers.
