CoinLedger offers Single Sign-On (SSO) through Google and Coinbase. This means that you can set up your CoinLedger account with the same sign-in credentials that you would enter when signing into your Google or Coinbase account. Setting up SSO can also extend the same 2FA protections to your CoinLedger account that you have set up through Google / Coinbase.
SSO is a good option if your account meets these conditions:
You want to quickly create a CoinLedger account without having to generate a new password
You want to apply Two-factor Authentication (2FA) to your CoinLedger account
You have verified access to an active Coinbase or Google account
Your Coinbase or Google account has not been previously flagged for any security issues
On CoinLedger, the SSO feature is implemented using the OAuth protocol which is a standard across a broad range of tech. It is secure, and gives CoinLedger read-only access to your Coinbase or Google account for the purpose of applying the sign-in credentials and advanced security settings that these platforms offer to your CoinLedger account.
