Improve the Experience for Returning Users

If you’ve integrated the JavaScript SDK on your website, you can give returning users a streamlined login experience. People won’t have to see the logged-out version of your site and won’t waste time signing-in. By automatically determining if a user is signed-in to SPiD via the JavaScript SDK, you can let returning users immediately start engaging with your site.

One of the easiest ways to do this is to use the JavaScript SDK to detect whether a visitor is signed-in to SPiD.

This is a complete overview of this process between your service (orange), the SPiD JS SDK (white) and the SPiD platform (blue): Single Sign On complete overview using JS SDK, cookies and redirects
