Seamless login is a great experience for any service. Google allows you to use the Google account almost everywhere without a lot of sign-ins. In the case of multiple accounts, you may have to choose, but once approved, it doesn’t ask for it every time. Microsoft has made it possible for a similar experience through Windows 10 Accounts Chrome extension. Windows 10 Accounts Chrome extension allows one to seamlessly sign-in to Microsoft services including Office 365, Exchange Online and OneDrive for Business. My Apps Secure Sign-in Chrome extension offers single sign-on to cloud applications which are set up in your organization.
Windows 10 Accounts Chrome extension
Once you install the extension on the Chrome browser, it will leverage the Microsoft account to sign in to all Microsoft services without prompting for password every time. If you are wondering which Microsoft account? Then it is the same Microsoft account you are using in your computer.
Here is what the extension can do-
Sign in to supported websites with accounts on Windows 10! Use this extension to sign in to supported websites with accounts on Windows 10. If you have a Microsoft supported identity on Windows 10, you won’t be required to enter your credentials to sign in to supported websites. You’ll need to use this extension if your organization has implemented a conditional access policy. Currently, this extension supports Azure Active Directory identities.
So you can see the scope of the extension goes beyond one application. It works with Azure Active Directory including Office 365, Exchange online and even OneDrive for Business. The extension became available during Creators Update.
Keeping in mind that it has more focus on Enterprise, IT Admin can install the extension forcefully on computers using Policy feature of Windows.
My Apps Secure Sign-in extension for Chrome
This Chrome extension offers single sign-on to cloud applications which are set up in your organization. It helps to launch specific applications, i.e., myapps.microsoft.com. You can start applications through search bar, shortcuts to recently used apps and access internal company URLs while remote.
The second extension was the Sign-In Helper. It is not available in the Chrome Extensions store anymore. These extensions make sure that you sign in automatically to Microsoft services. Entering account pass and credentials is no longer necessary.
I am expecting this extension to become available for Edge when Microsoft transforms into a Chromium-based framework. But as of now, there is not much choice.
