SSO means single sign on, you do not need an extra username/password but you can use your VATSIM credentials.

I cannot login with with VATSIM SSO

Do a simple test, try to login to
If SSO does not work with you?

  • If not, there is a problem with your VATSIM credentials - you need to clarify with VATSIM.
  • If this works and not with datastore, let us know
  • Other hint: if you have a 6 digit VATSIM id, try to add a leading 0: 123456 -> 0123456
  • If this still does not work, contact us via alpha chat
