General FAQs

What is Okta Personal?

Okta Personal is Okta’s consumer password manager. Using Okta Personal, you can:

  • Sign up and sign in without a master password
  • See all your apps in one place — with a familiar UI
  • Securely store, save, generate, and autofill passwords
  • Store and autofill non-passwords such as payment information, addresses, and notes
  • Sync across unlimited number of devices
  • Share passwords with those you trust
  • Import from other password managers

We are building the next generation of identity software, and password management capabilities are just step one of our journey.

I don’t want Okta to have my data anymore. Can I delete my Okta Personal account?

Using Okta Personal with your Okta work account

How is Okta Personal different from the Okta I use for work? 

Okta Personal is a consumer password manager owned and managed by you, while Okta for work is owned and managed by your employer. An employer does not have and cannot request access to your Okta Personal account and its data. In fact, NO ONE except you has access to your Okta Personal data.

Can I use my Okta work credentials to sign up for Okta Personal?

No, your work login credentials cannot be used to sign up or sign in to Okta Personal. Your Okta work and Okta Personal accounts are totally separate from one another. To use Okta Personal, you need to create an Okta Personal account with your personal email.  

Can I use my Okta Personal and Okta work accounts together?

This depends on how your Okta admin at work configured the settings. The accounts are separate from one another, but we have several features that allow you to seamlessly use and switch between your Okta work and Okta Personal accounts.

  • Use the same Okta Browser Plugin to switch between accounts
  • Move personal apps from your Okta work account to a free Okta Personal account so that you can take them with you after leaving the company*
  • Switch between your work and personal accounts seamlessly from your work dashboard*

*Available only if your Okta work admin enables these features for your organization.

Can my work admin see or manage my Okta Personal account?

No, your work admins do not have any visibility into or control over your Okta Personal account and personal data. Your data is yours, during and even after leaving your workplace.

Can I use Okta Personal after leaving the company? Is it still free?

Yes, your Okta Personal account and all data associated with your account is yours — even after leaving your workplace. Okta Personal remains free of charge.
