Sign-in options

When your users and administrators sign in, what they see depends on the sign-in option you've chosen.

The first screen they're shown asks them for the email address they use to sign in.

Sophos Sign in screen

The next screen they're shown depends on the sign-in option you've chosen.

Sophos Central Admin email and password

If you've chosen not to use federated sign-in, they're shown a screen that allows them to sign in with their Sophos Central Admin email and password.

Sophos ID sign-in screen

Azure AD

If you've chosen to use federated sign-in and to use Azure AD as your identity provider, they're shown a screen that allows them to sign in with their Microsoft Azure credentials or their Sophos Central Admin email and password.

Sophos ID or Microsoft Azure AD sign-in screen

Your administrators and users see this screen even if you've chosen to use federated sign-in only.

Other identity providers

The sign-in screens shown for other identity providers are different. What your administrators and users see depends on whether you have chosen to use federated sign-in only or not.

If you've chosen to use federated sign-in only, they're not shown another screen. We use your chosen identity provider to authenticate them and sign them in.

If you have chosen to use federated sign-in or Sophos Central Admin email and password, they're shown a screen that allows them to sign in with either option.
