Avoid Multiple Logins in SharePoint

When using SharePoint, you may be asked to provide your user name and password multiple times.

If you are on the domain, use Internet Explorer or Firefox, and run Microsoft Windows. You can configure your browser to use your current Windows user name and password, thereby eliminating the problem of multiple logins.

To configure Internet Explorer

  1. Open Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE).
  2. Log on to your SharePoint site.
  3. In IE, select the Tools menu, then select Internet Options.
  4. Select the Security tab.
  5. Select Local intranet, then click the Sites button.
  6. Click the Advanced button.
  7. The Web address of your SharePoint site should appear in the Add this website to the zone field. Click the Add button, then the Close button.
  8. Click OK to close the remaining dialog boxes.

To configure Firefox

  1. Open Firefox.
  2. In the address bar, type about:config and press Enter.
  3. When prompted with a warning, select I’ll be careful, I promise!
  4. Scroll to the preference named yoursiteurlpreference.
  5. Right-click on this preference and select Modify.
  6. In the Enter string value dialog box type https://YoursiteURL/ and clickOK.
