About SSO

In this article you will Learn how to enable SSO in your account and use it securely.

Instahyre offers SAML based Single Sign On(SSO) that allows recruiters to login to Instahyre through an Identity Provider of your choice. We allow integrations with any provider that supports SAML2 (Security Assertion Markup Language).

Few pre-requisites for SSO eligibility in your Instahyre account

All team members will have to be a registered user on Instahyre before being able to login via SSO
Instahyre login credentials will still be functional after SSO has been enabled, but SSO password can only be reset from your SSO provider
You can provide and revoke access of team members to SSO, via your identity provider.
Users can choose to login either from Instahyre SSO login page, your SSO provider or a login link

Single Sign On is only available for our database subscription accounts and is not available for free users.
