Big Changes Coming

We’re excited to announce that we will be updating our Single Sign-On (SSO) systems for all KidKare by Minute Menu products.

What is Single Sign-On (SSO)?

Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication service that lets users use one set of login credentials (username and password) for multiple applications.

As part of our efforts to maintain high-security standards, we will be updating our Single Sign-On (SSO) systems for all KidKare by Minute Menu products, beginning with Minute Menu CX.

These changes help us ensure that we are using the highest, most up-to-date security standards to protect your data and will allow us to enhance future product offerings and integrations.
