Social Sign-On, also known as 'Frustration-Free Login', lets users login to their SmartHub® engagement platform with their Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn or Yammer accounts. It enables quick login for employees to get straight to their platform.
They don't have to remember usernames or passwords - and that means one less barrier to engaging with their benefits program.
If the user prefers to use standard username and password, this option remains available on the login page, too.
Clients can also customize the options shown on the login page:
- Choose which accounts members can log in with (a maximum of three): Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Yammer
- Username and Password
- Add their own background image, logo, Favicon (the little icon which appears on the browser tab), program description and tagline and a mobile app home screen icon
Only the bare minimum of employees' data is shared between the social platforms and Reward Gateway
When the user logs in, a small amount of data is needed from the social network provider to create and access their account. We only collect the minimum possible amount to make it easier for members to log in quickly.
Here’s a list of what each social network provider will pass to Reward Gateway:
Facebook | First Name, Last Name, Email, Gender, Date of Birth
Google+ | First Name, Last Name, Email, Gender, Date of Birth
LinkedIn | First Name, Last Name, Email, Date of Birth
Yammer | First Name, Last Name, Email, Date of Birth
That’s all the data they send us, nothing more, nothing less and we pass nothing back to them.
We will only use the data to set up and validate their account.
We won’t share any data with the login providers. None of the employee's activity on the platform will feed back to their social accounts or show in their social network feeds. That means, for example, if the social login provider features adverts, the adverts won’t change to retailers they may have been viewing on the platform. Absolutely nothing is shared with them.
