Okta Personal for Workforce GA Update

May 2024 Update

Previously, we have communicated that Okta Personal for Workforce will become Generally Available in Production in May 2024.

We have made the decision to delay GA in Production to simplify and enhance the admin experience between Okta Personal and the Okta Workforce offering. When a new GA date is confirmed, we will update this blog post.

In the meantime, we created the Okta Personal White Glove Customer Program to partner with customers who are interested in rolling out Okta Personal for Workforce. If you would like to partner with us on collateral and communication strategy or feature requests, please fill out our program intake form.

What does this change mean?

If you have received previous email communication about Okta Personal for Workforce GA affecting your organization’s default end-user experiences starting in June 2024, this will NOT go into effect while the product is in Early Access.

Can I still turn on Okta Personal for Workforce for my org?

Yes, you can go into your Okta Admin Console > Settings > Early Access > Okta Personal for Workforce to enable the feature.

Could you help with rolling out Okta Personal for Workforce to my org?

Yes, if you want to learn more or would like help with the rollout, please fill out our White Glove Customer Program intake form.

Do I still need to opt out if I don't want to roll out Okta Personal for Workforce?

During the remaining Early Access period, we will be re-evaluating the rollout strategy affecting default end-user experiences. If you have previously filled out the opt-out form, your preferences will be honored in the future.

When is the new GA date?

We will communicate a new GA in Production date as soon as we are able.

Original GA Blog Post

We are excited to announce Okta Personal for Workforce is Generally Available — now in Preview, with GA in Production in May. With the upcoming GA, we want to give you a heads up that GA may affect your organization’s default end-user experiences starting in June 2024. 

Okta Personal for Workforce integrates Okta Personal -- Okta’s consumer password manager -- with the Okta Workforce Identity Cloud to enable admins to:

  • Offer a free password manager to your organization's end users
  • Encourage your end users to keep work and personal apps separate
  • Maintain enterprise security hygiene

What is changing?

Starting in June 2024, end users of eligible organizations will start to see Okta Personal entry points in their Workforce dashboard and plugin to encourage saving personal apps separate from the end user’s work account - here is what they look like.

Who does this change affect?

This change affects Okta Workforce Identity Cloud organizations that allow users to add personal apps (check to see if your org has enabled this feature). You should have received an email about upcoming GA changes if your organization has enabled personal apps.

Okta Personal for Workforce continues to be disabled for:

  • Government Moderate (FedRAMP Moderate), Okta for Government High (FedRAMP High) and Okta for US Military (DOD IL4) environments. These customers are located in the following cells: Federal is OK5 and OK10. Gov and Military are OG1 and OM1
  • WIC organizations that currently do not allow end users to save personal apps to work tenants.

How do I opt out?

Please fill out this form before June 1, 2024 to disable Okta Personal for Workforce for your organization. If you have any questions or feedback, please email [email protected]
