Single sign on is no more secure than a set of random passwords stored in a keychain available on the Net.
If they hack one of the services you're using they'll only have access to your things in it and there'll be no way to infer your other passwords.
If they hack the SSO company they'll have access to all of your services (similar to them hacking your password keychain).
And since keychains are not large most of them fit into public cloud storage services.
So these guys are using FUD advertising to sell their own little Ponzi scheme !
Note that the information they'll extract from it is enough of value by itself. Facebook is waling on water to do the same SSO for you for tree :)
