Your customers launch your PWA app and start working immediately with the persistent authentication setting. Users sign in once and stay signed in for a fixed period of time.

Increased engagement

Let your users to choose to stay signed in and get them back into your app faster. When their session expires, a new one is automatically created.

Secured by default

The persistent authentication settings are configurable through the APEX admin instance and it can be disabled at any moment, giving you control over your system.

Using the API

The persistent authentication is enabled for new PWAs. Change your existing applications to use persistent authentication through the extended apex_authentication.login API.
