SSO for Privacy Conscious Users

Users are increasingly concerned with online privacy, as stories of data breaches, micro-targeted ads, election interference, and government surveillance proliferate.

Alias is an independent authentication provider designed specifically with these users in mind, providing the security and usability benefits of single sign-on, while avoiding the privacy pitfalls of social login providers.

Developer Beta

Alias is currently in beta for developers.

If you'd like to join the beta, create an Alias account and apply for developer access from your account settings in the Alias app.

Account security made simple

Strong, unique passwords are critical for keeping accounts secure, but managing all those credentials is hard. As a result, many users reuse weak passwords across the web, compromising security and increasing the fallout of data breaches.

Alias allows users to sign-in to any supporting service with one account, reducing credential fatigue. Strong password requirements, pwned password checking, and two-factor authentication helps defend accounts from attackers.

Signing up and logging in to a service with Alias is easier than using a weak, memorised password, not harder. As Alias is entirely web based, it works on any device without any setup - no need for external apps or cross-device syncing.

Straightforward integration

By authenticating your users and leaving the rest to you, Alias keeps integrations simple and data duplication to an absolute minimum.

Built using the OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect standards, it's simple to integrate Alias with your website, app, or any other web service.

With OpenID Connect implementations available for most languages, frameworks, and platforms, integration often only requires a few lines of configuration.

Contact your users without the hassle of email

Alias includes built in support for contacting your users. Simply define what types of messages you want to send, and ask for permission with a OAuth 2.0 request.

Since consent is explicit and users can unsubscribe from within Alias if they change their mind, you always know who wants to hear from you. No dirty mailing lists to clean, unsubscribe systems to manage, or spam filters to worry about.

Need to send an alert to an individual user, or a newsletter to everyone at once? Either way, all it takes is one simple REST API call.

Simple messages with clear calls to action

HTML emails are notoriously difficult to style consistently across clients, and are overkill for a lot of transactional messages and alerts. Alias messages are short and text-only, so you can communicate the core message clearly and simply.
