Managing your WordPress site
Thanks to SSO “Single Sign On”, you can recycle the secure wetopi session. This is a good thing. Not just because with a simple click we can jump straight to our WordPress admin, but because we are not exposing our WordPress credentials across the network. This is something to take in consideration, specially nowadays we work remote and connect to Unsecured Wifi Hotspots.
