We have begun the process of switching our OnBoard, CarrierWatch, and Directory Classic users over to a single sign-on, replacing a username (Samthetrucker123) with an email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). It will now be easier to log into DAT with a single sign-on. The benefits to having one email as your login username are many:
Better security, individual email based logins provide better security; no one can use your email address except you.
Easy to remember, instead of having to remember several different usernames, you can easily login to your DAT account with a your email.
One access point for all DAT products, 50% of DAT customers have been logging in with their emails since 2018, so let's get everyone else on board.
Self service access, having an email login makes it easier to manage your account through account.dat.com.
Selected users will use their existing username and password to sign in to OnBoard/CarrierWatch/DAT Directory
