Microsoft launches a Chrome extension designed for a single Azure Active-Directory sign-in

Microsoft is bringing some goodies to Chrome users yet again today, by introducing a new Azure Active-Directory sign-in extension to the browser. The extension was released recently, and many people who work at Azure-utilizing companies may already have it on their computers. The extension is there to help people sign into services simply, as long as they support identities in the Azure Active Directory.

Use this extension to sign in to supported websites with accounts on Windows 10. If you have a Microsoft supported identity on Windows 10, you won’t be required to enter your credentials to sign in to supported websites. You’ll need to use this extension if your organization has implemented conditional access policy. Currently, this extension supports Azure Active Directory identities.

The plugin comes as part of Microsoft’s effort to reclaim their push to have a single sign-in experience for Windows 10 – at least for Azure users. It opens up avenues for IT companies to create device-based access policies, and generally, have more control over the security of their online services.

You can download the plugin for Chrome right now, and IT departments who use Azure services frequently are already loading it up on wide scales for their companies.
