Set up and manage single sign-on (SSO) for your mmhmm account

You can use single sign-on (SSO) to easily create and manage your mmhmm account using an existing Google or Apple account. SSO keeps your account secure and allows you to use mmhmm without needing to remember another password.

SSO with Google

Create a new mmhmm account

  1. In your web browser, go to the mmhmm sign up page and click Sign up with Google.
  2. On the next page, choose the Google account that you want to use as your mmhmm account.
  3. Choose the Google account that you want to use for SSO with your mmhmm account.
  4. Your mmhmm account will be automatically created and you’ll be redirected to your account home page.

Enable SSO on an existing mmhmm account

  1. In your web browser, go to the mmhmm sign in page and click Sign in with Google.
  2. Choose the Google account that matches the email address associated with your existing mmhmm account.
    If your Google account doesn’t appear on this list, click Use another account and enter your account details.
    Note: If your Google email doesn't match the email address associated with your mmhmm account, a new mmhmm account will be created instead.
  3. This will set up SSO with your Google account on your mmhmm account and log you in to mmhmm.

SSO with Apple

Create a new mmhmm account

  1. In your web browser, go to the mmhmm sign up page and click Sign up with Apple.
  2. Log in with your Apple ID.
  3. In the Email section, choose whether you want to Share My Email or Hide My Email. This will either “share” or “hide” your Apple ID email address from mmhmm.
  4. Click Continue. If you chose Hide My Email, Apple will create a private email alias to use with mmhmm.

  5. Your mmhmm account will be automatically created and you’ll be redirected to your account home.

Hide your Apple ID

When you create an mmhmm account using your Apple ID, you’ll be asked to either "share" or "hide" your Apple ID email address from mmhmm.

If you hide your email, Apple will generate a private email alias that will be associated with your mmhmm account. You’ll still sign in to mmhmm with SSO using your regular Apple ID, but you won't receive invitations to conversations or video sharing notifications via email unless you share this private email alias with others.

To find the private email alias associated with your mmhmm account: 

  1. In your web browser, go to ooo.mmhmm.app/account. You may be prompted to sign in to mmhmm.
  2. In the upper right, look for the email address next to your account name. This is the private email alias that Apple generated when you selected Hide My Email during the mmhmm account creation process.

Share this email address with anyone you collaborate with in mmhmm. If another mmhmm user wants to invite you to join a conversation or share a video with you, they must send the invitation to this private email alias.

Enable SSO on an existing mmhmm account

  1. In your web browser, go to the mmhmm sign in page and click Sign in with Apple.
  2. Log in with your Apple ID. If your Apple ID email matches the email address associated with your mmhmm account, your accounts will be linked to each other.
    Note: If your Apple ID email doesn't match the email address associated with your mmhmm account, a new mmhmm account will be created instead.
  3. You'll now be logged into your mmhmm account and will be configured to use SSO with Apple.

Enable SSO for your mmhmm for Teams organization

If you have an mmhmm for Teams account, you can enable SSO to require your team to use mmhmm with an SSO provider like Google or Apple.

Note: You must be an mmhmm Teams admin or owner in order to manage SSO for your Teams account. 
  1. In your web browser, go to the mmhmm Authentication settings page. You may be prompted to sign in to mmhmm.
  2. In the Single Sign-on section, click to turn the Require all members to use SSO toggle on.
  3. Select the SSO provider you want to use.
  4. Click Save. This will turn on SSO for everyone on your team and prevent them from signing in with a traditional password.

    The next time members of your team are required to sign into mmhmm, they’ll be prompted to sign in using SSO.

    Disable SSO on an existing account

    Note: You can't turn off SSO if you have an mmhmm Teams account that requires SSO.
    1. In your web browser, go to the mmhmm Connected apps page. You may be prompted to sign in to mmhmm.
    2. Next to your connected SSO account, click Disconnect.

    3. A prompt will appear letting you know that disabling SSO requires you to set a password. Click Continue.
    4. You’ll be automatically signed out of your mmhmm account and receive an email asking you to reset your password.
    5. In the email, click Reset Password to complete the password reset process.
    6. Your mmhmm account will now be associated with this username and password. You’ll sign in to mmhmm using this username and password moving forward.
    Note: If you set up SSO with an Apple ID and hid your email during the account creation process, you’ll have to use the private email alias associated with your mmhmm account to sign in after you disable SSO.
