Federated Signin

Federated Sign-in

1. What is Federated Sign in and how does it work?

Federated sign-in allows users to be authenticated by certain co-operating sites (known as Relying Parties or RP) uses a third party service. Zoho Accounts support sign-in using OpenID and OAuth.

As a first step towards opening up our services to the external world, users can now access. Zoho uses relying party credentials (Google / Yahoo! / Facebook). For accessing Zoho services, visit the Zoho main page - https://www.zoho.com/index.html, and enter your relying party account  details by clicking on the appropriate link present in the "Sign In" box at the top right corner. There will be no security issues as Zoho does not have access to the users' relying party password. We only store your respective email addresses for the purpose of identification. Once you click the relying party ID links, you will be redirected to their respective pages for authentication.

Note : While logging out from Zoho, you need to explicitly 'Sign out' from your relying party accounts also, for the respective sessions to expire.
