Review: OneLogin

oneloginA user signs in to one website. Then they have to sign in to another, and another. Each platform has a different user name and password and trying to remember all of them can prove to be difficult and time consuming. What if all a user had to do was sign into a portal once with single sign-on and be automatically signed in to all their applications- saving time, frustration and a potential data breach?

In Use:
OneLogin hopes to solve this dilemma by offering organizations single sign-on and multi-factor authentication to 3rd party websites in the cloud. Compatible with SalesForce, G-mail, Concur, and Dropbox, users can instantly sign on to thousands of websites without having to enter multiple usernames and passwords.

Nonprofit organizations of all sizes can benefit from OneLogin’s prices. With numerous subscriptions and add-ons, a charity can chose which one is best for them. Businesses are encouraged to take advantage of OneLogin’s free trial before purchasing. OneLogin also gives a considerable discount to nonprofit organizations who may otherwise not be able to afford the software.

Ease of Use:
Getting started could prove difficult if an organization is not particularly tech-savvy. But with support in 13 languages, chances are you can get the help you need to set up Onelogin even without a tech background. Each subscription whether it’s the “Starter”, “Enterprise” or “Unlimited” comes with standard support.

Technology Used:
Nonprofit organizations will need to download OneLogin’s software to get started. While getting set up is considerably more involved then other software reviewed on this website, it doesn’t prove to be too difficult. Many users have expressed the ease of setting up OneLogin. And with an email address and phone number right on their website, a user can contact customer service if any issues arise.

Instead of signing in to multiple websites- nonprofits only have to sign in once. Access all apps and websites on the cloud with a single sign-on that is safe and secure. Whether a user is signing on through a tablet, computer, or phone they can feel confident that their information is safe from potential threats. With various tiers and add-ons, nonprofits can decide which subscription works best for them.


  • Single sign-on and multi-factor authentication protects a nonprofit from cyber threats

  • OneLogin has reasonable prices and offers discounts for nonprofit organizations

  • Customize the portal with your logo

  • Supports 13 languages

  • Disadvantages:

  • Two data breaches in two years

  • May not be compatible with all of your 3rd party websites

  • My Opinion:
    If you feel nervous about OneLogin’s multiple data breaches, I don’t blame you. It’s scary to find out that your private information that was supposed to be secure was compromised. While companies are trying hard to secure their information, data breaches happen to the most secure companies. If this is an issue for you, I would encourage you to talk to a OneLogin representative and find out what steps they’re taking to make sure a data breach doesn’t happen in the future. If after you’ve spoken to them, you are confident that they are taking your security seriously- I would give the free trial a try and see if you like it. If after speaking to them you still are hesitant, I would encourage you to look at any number of single sign-on products.
