Revolutionizing Government Access with GOV.UK One Login

Presently, GOV.UK hosts over 340 services, with approximately 190 accounts accessible through 44 different sign-in methods. GOV.UK One Login aims to replace this fragmented system with a universal sign-in solution, streamlining user access and identity verification.
