Using Single Sign On (SSO)
Single Sign On allows the Minecraft: Education Edition application to use the login credentials that the user signed onto the device, and reduces the amount of times your students need to enter their login information. Follow these steps to turn on SSO:
- Login to the device with your school or work account
- Open Minecraft: Education Edition
- From the main screen, select the Settings button
- Select Profile from the Settings menu
- Toggle Enable Single Sign On to the On position
- The next time you login to your device and launch Minecraft: Education Edition, you should be logged into the game with the same login credentials
