Simple, secure access to government services online
login.gov offers the public secure and private online access to participating government programs. With one login.gov account, users can sign in to multiple government agencies. Our goal is to make managing federal benefits, services and applications easier and more secure.
Simple and secure for the public
Because login.gov is a shared service,
- Users need fewer passwords and learn fewer interfaces.
- Security experts protect one service instead of many.
- Dedicated teams of design and security experts will continuously improve it.
Saving the federal government time and money
login.gov handles software development, security operations, and customer support. This frees up government departments to focus on their missions while reducing costs and improving security.
A shared authentication platform frees up agency resources to deliver great services while reducing costs and improving security.
login.gov works hand-in-hand with the private sector and nonprofits to identify and implement best practices and new standards in secure, privacy-protecting authentication.
Led by the U.S. Digital Service and 18F, login.gov builds on groundwork laid by the National Institute for Standards in Technology, the Cybersecurity National Action Plan, and the Federal Acquisition Service.
