We’ve changed the current Outlook 365 authentication to OAuth2, so when connecting your Outlook 365 email you will now see the following 365 popups instead of entering your password within the Vincere app. What this means for you is that the connection is even more secure and stable.  


What is OAuth?

OAuth is an authorization framework which allows the sharing of resources stored on one application to another application in a secure, reliable and efficient manner without having to use credentials. It uses tokens instead.

To help give you a better idea of what it is, it’s basically the framework that powers the  “Log in with Facebook” or “Log in with Google” button in apps and websites. 

FYI: Vincere uses the 2.0 version:  OAuth2.0

If you’d like to know a technical explanation of it and how it works, here’s a good resource. Or, visit the official OAuth website here.

What this means for you?

✔ Enhanced privacy: Vincere gets access to your emails without having any access to other personal details or credential info.

✔ Enhanced Security: For OAuth, data transfers must take place on SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) enabled applications which means your data is kept safe and secure.
