Add an app from the browser plugin

End users can instantly add most standard online apps to their Okta Home Page, with a single click. When users enter credentials to log in to an online app (whether in the OIN or not), Okta displays a banner offering to save the app's password. Clicking Save Passwordautomatically adds the app to the user's Okta Home Page. This feature requires a specific configuration.


  • To disable the feature for the current app, users click Never for this App.
  • To disable the feature for all apps, users click Disable for all apps.

Admins can enable and disable this feature in Self Service Applications settings as follows:

  1. Go to Applications > Self Service.

  2. Click Edit.

  3. Select the following:

    1. Enable self service application assignment.

    2. Select either Show organization and user managed apps only or Show user managed apps only.

      The feature is disabled if you select Show organization managed apps only.

  4. Click Save.

About the app logo - Whenever possible, we include the site's official logo when we create the app chiclet. If we can't include the official logo, we create a custom logo using the first letter of the site's name and a randomly-chosen background color. This custom logo becomes the app's standard logo for the entire org. If other orgs add the same app, their custom logo is typically assigned a different background color.
