Google Adwords is a platform which provides advertising services where a user or an advertiser can display advertisements and offer servings by listing products to a web user. Google Adwords is used to display ads in both mobile apps and search engines like Google. miniOrange provides a ready to use Single Sign-On (SSO) solution for Google Adwords. This solution ensures that you are ready to roll out secure access to Webflow to your employees within minutes to accomplish most aspects of web development & website distribution entirely within the application.

For web applications that do not provide support for federated single sign-on, we have miniOrange Secure Single Sign-On browser plugins for SSO. Here, it is enabled on an application, where end users see an icon on their home pages and browsers, through this users can set and update their credentials. ( In the secure store for that application only).


miniOrange Supports all Browser Extension
  • miniOrange Secure Single Sign-On Plugins for SSO support all popular web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.
  • Browser plugin a secure driven post to the application login page, signing in the user automatically on their behalf. - The plug-in does not store the credentials anywhere and they are discarded once the user has signed into the application.
  • Users credentials are stored in an encrypted format by using AES encryption with the combination of a customer-specific private key. When a user clicks the application icon, miniOrange securely posts the username/password to the app login page over SSL and the user is automatically logged in.
