What Is Teachable SSO?

What Is Teachable SSO?

Teachable SSO utilizes Google Single Sign-on, which means students can use it to link their Google account with your Teachable school for login purposes. Essentially, it removes the requirement for students to remember yet another set of login credentials because they can simply use their Google login details.

Teachable SSO is optional, and you have to manually enable it for your Teachable school in order for people to use it. Additionally, Teachable SSO is not available on the free plan. You must be subscribed to a paid plan to access it.

Once SSO is set up, students can log into their account seamlessly via their Google credentials with only a couple of clicks. Overall, it’s a faster and easier process.
