What is the single authentication system ?
The PrestaShop ecosystem is composed of many services and sites, developed and managed by the PrestaShop company, such as the back office of our users' online shops, our PrestaShop Addons marketplace, our institutional site...
These services were originally designed independently, each with their own authentication system. In order to improve the experience of our users, as well as our technical maintenance processes, we have developed a new single authentication system, allowing them to connect to all of our services and sites at once. This new login process will be active from April 2020.
The implementation of a single authentication system to access the different services provided by PrestaShop represents multiple advantages for our users as well as for us:
Simplify the management of passwords for more security: the more passwords the user has to manage, the more he will tend to use similar passwords or passwords that are easy to remember, considerably increasing the risks of hacking. A single password, meeting the recommended security criteria, will bring more security to our users.
Fluidify the experience within our ecosystem: connecting to one of our services will allow our users to access all PrestaShop services with a simple connection, thanks to our new single authentication system.
Secure the management of personal data held by our various online services.
Simplify the definition and implementation of security policies.
