Okta Mobile Safari Extension
The Okta Mobile Safari Extension extends Okta’s SSO product to Safari Web apps. If enabled, end users can access SWA and SAML apps directly in Safari, without having to open Okta Mobile.
For the latest functionality, you must have iOS Okta Mobile v. 5.6 or above.
To enable the Okta Mobile Safari Extension,
The Sign on to SAML apps check box allows the Safari Extension to share the Okta Mobile session with Safari. The allowed session lasts for 2 minutes, after which the session is dropped. Essentially, an end user can sign into SAML apps by entering only their Okta Mobile PIN, if Okta Mobile has a valid session with Okta.
This option is turned on by default, but can be disabled if you’d rather not allow seamless SAML access to Safari. If you choose to disable, please note that only SWA apps will be accessible via the extension. For end users, a message in their Safari mobile browser indicates that SAML apps are not supported.
To enable the Okta Mobile Safari Extension, end users must perform a one-time configuration.
Using the Okta Mobile Safari Extension
If an end user is using Mobile Safari, they can use the extension to fill their sign on forms.
