What is Okta Personal for Workforce?

Okta Personal for Workforce is a set of features that integrates Okta Personal (Okta's consumer password manager) with the Okta Workforce offering. Employees can use and switch between their Okta work and personal accounts in the same, familiar UI - while keeping the accounts separate.

Admins can:

  1. Provide a free personal password manager for employees as a perk
  2. Separate employees' personal data from an organization's enterprise tenant


Work and personal apps are intertwined, and your employee's personal security hygiene can carry over to your organization's enterprise security standards.

  • For the enterprise, decoupling personal and work apps in work accounts helps admins to maintain security best practices while allowing employees to still save their personal apps. Keeping apps separate also decreases the volume of support tickets the IT teams face, since some of them are personal apps.

  • For employees, Okta Personal allows them to continue having access to their saved apps (since it’s decoupled from their work accounts) even after they leave the company. By owning their personal account, employees also ensure their organizations do not have visibility into their personal apps.

Key features

Personal app migration

App migration allows employees to migrate personal apps saved in their work accounts into Okta Personal accounts. This feature helps ensure that employees can take their personal (non-work provisioned) apps with them even after they leave their company and helps companies keep their Okta tenants clear of non-work related data.

Domain blocking

To prevent enterprise data leakage during the personal app migration process, admins may block additional domains through the Admin Console. Learn more here.

End-user interface updates

The Okta Personal for Workforce end-user interface updates include:

  • Contextual touch points on the Okta Dashboard and plugin that introduce users to Okta Personal
  • Dashboard account switcher that allows users to easily switch back and forth between Okta Personal and Okta Workforce accounts
