This topic provides online help content for cloud services, such as Microsoft Intune and Office 365, which rely on Microsoft Azure Active Directory for identity and directory services.

If your admin has recently provided you with a user ID and password to access one or more Microsoft cloud services, you can use the steps in this procedure to get you familiar with how to sign in and sign out.

  1. Go to the sign in page for the service. This should have been provided to you by your admin.

  2. Type your user ID and password. If you can’t remember your password, click Forgot your password? for instructions.

    When you sign in to the cloud service for the first time, you are required to change your temporary password before you can access the service.

  3. If you want to be able to close your browser window and remain logged in to the cloud service until you sign out, click Keep me signed in.

    • If you click Keep me signed in and then sign out of the cloud service, you are prompted to re-enter your password the next time you sign in to the cloud service.

    • For security purposes, we recommend that you use Keep me signed in only on private computers, and never on public or shared computers.

  4. Click Sign in.

To sign out of the cloud service, at the top right of the portal, click Sign out below your display name.
