Keeping your My.Scranton credentials Secure

Why should I close my browser when I am done?

When you log into the University’s single sign-on system, a cookie is stored in your browser that allows you to be automatically logged in to other applications. This cookie is set to expire at the end of your browser’s session. By closing your browser, this cookie is no longer available, which prevents the browser from automatically logging into applications. This prevents others who may use your session from accessing your data.

What is single sign on for web applications?

Single sign-on allows a user to provide their username and password once for multiple applications within their browser session.
