Okta, annoying popup or threat

Okta just took over a security website I was logging into.  I was forced, as far as I can tell, to acknowledge the app by clicking on the "got it" button to get access to the site.  It might be by fault because I forgot to turn on the popup blocker after having to allow them for something last week.

Is Okta a threat or just another annoying, intrusive, sw company trying to get my business?   Has it attached itself to my computer? (I can't find any installs, plugins or cookies, yet) After today's experience I will never use them, that's for sure!!

Re: Okta, annoying popup or threat

The Okta website itself seems to be legit and provide legitimate cloud services IE SSO. I have no clue about what the website you were on forcing an app download just to use the site. I would install Malwarebytes and run just to be on the safe side. It will find an remove any PUP programs that are installed for you.

Re: Okta, annoying popup or threat

Okta is a legitimate company that enterprises use for sign in services, among other things.  Most likely, the website uses the service for whatever you were signing into.
