You may have noticed that when you're at work, you are automatically signed in to your Launchpad. You go to your bookmark or click on the browser extension icon, and your Launchpad just opens.
This is because your administrator has configured your system to use "no-password" sign in. This is also known as Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) or Kerberos.
NOTE: Alternatively, your administrator might have configured the system to allow for long browser sessions.
For this to work effectively, trust settings on your computer must be configured correctly.
- For users of Chrome and Internet Explorer on Windows, and Safari on Mac, no action may be required if your administrator used group policies to configure the settings.
- For users of Firefox, you’ll need to manually configure your settings. Click here for details.
- For this release, Chrome on Mac is not supported.
You can access your Launchpad two ways:
If you see the Verify Password screen
The first time you sign in to IdentityNow after IWA is configured, you'll be asked to verify your password. This regenerates your local encryption key so that you can continue to launch apps from your Launchpad through single sign-on.
After that, you won't need to provide your password when you use the site or apps on your IdentityNow Launchpad.
If you do not have the IdentityNow browser software, you see the Verify Password dialog box every time you sign in if the following is true:
NOTE: You might also see it again after installing the browser extension if you restart the browser.
If you still see the Sign In screen
If you are presented with a sign in screen, you are likely on a mobile device or off your corporate network or VPN.
Sign in normally, using your network or AD password. Again, that’s the password you use to sign in to your corporate workstation.
This usually happens if you reset your password or the first time you sign in on a new device. It ensures your apps' encrypted passwords are migrated successfully.
It might also happen after your IdentityNow password is reset or changed.
- You might also see the sign in screen if you're using an app that is configured to require extra verification for high-risk pages or features. For more information, see Why am I being asked to sign back in to IdentityNow?
