Logging in with device authorization

Any active Skills user can use device authorization to make logging in to our mobile apps easier. After you authorize a device, you’ll be able to log in without entering your username and password. If you change your password, you won’t need to re-authenticate your device. 

Important: Each device should only be authorized once. If you have a device that has been authorized multiple times, remove duplicate authorizations from your Account page.

To use device authorization for Android:

  1. Open the Pluralsight mobile app.
  2. Tap Sign in to start watching.
  3. Tap Use Single Sign-On (SSO).
  4. Tap Authorize your device with a code.
  5. Take note of the 6-digit code that appears, then go to pluralsight.com/auth on a browser.
    1. If you are not yet logged in to Pluralsight on the browser, log in with your credentials first.
  6. On your Account page, enter the 6-digit code in the Security code field under Authorized devices. Each code expires after 15 minutes.

Your device has been authenticated.

Tip: To get to your Account page from the Pluralsight Skills home page, click your avatar in the top right corner, click Account settings, and click the Devices tab.

To use device authorization for iOS:
