logins for connected apps

my data team has setup a few connected apps and use a single user sign on to talk to these apps. an important person from tehir team recently left and now they are asking for individual signons for wach app. so four logins, one for each app. my question is whether or not they need to use salesforce user logins to access these apps. i dont want to use 4 licenses for these apps, as now they are only using 1 sign on. can these apps, which are created with consumer key and secret, be accessed directly with those credentials, or do they require an actual salesforce user account to gain access to the data? id rather not create 4 user accounts as we dont really have a lot of user licenses for this.

thank you in advance

Go for OAuth authentication. It is easier to maintain and you don't need to burn any of those licenses. Of course I assume those apps allow you to use OAuth instead of basic authentication.
awesome, thanks!
