Single Sign-on SSO
Scoutbook now uses the same login and password as my.scouting.org
This is similar to what other sites, like Google, use one sign-in for Slides, Forms, Docs, Email, Sheets, Photos, YouTube, or just about anything else they serve. Same with Microsoft, Apple, or other companies that deal with a central identity.
We give access to similar information across all our platforms, so the risk of exposure is the same with one/multiple ids.
This is set up automatically when you are invited to Scoutbook or have used my.scouting.org. If you wish to ensure your account is set up for Single Sign-On, go to Scoutbook.com and click on “Forgot Password.” Resetting your password will set up Single Sign-On.
EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 28, 2020
All Scoutbook accounts will be required to be set up for Single Sign-On. For anyone not in SSO – after the implementation date, when they log in – they will see a Switch SSO dialog, and the only path forward for them will be to create a MyScouting account and associate.
Note: All Scout and parent accounts and most unit leader accounts are already on SSO. This won’t affect them.
