Understanding Simple Sign-in
Simple Sign-in (SSI) simplifies the sign-in experience for your apps on Fire OS devices by eliminating the need for customers to remember and manually type their login credentials (user name and password) to log into your apps on multiple devices.
Remembering login credentials for multiple apps is a common pain point for customers when they switch or upgrade to a new device and must sign into each app manually to finish the setup. Simple Sign-in addresses this by allowing customers to log into an app on a new device through a single click, with an account they already use on other devices. It works based on opaque tokens issued by you, representing the identity of your users, which doesn't require storing the user's raw login credentials.
