Why did I have to sign in twice?

If your company is using a Single Sign-On (SSO) service with your Google account, then signing in to your account from sends you to a second sign-in page. From here, you'll sign in not just to your Admin console, but to other programs or services your company has set up with SSO (so you don’t have to sign in to each one separately). Just enter the sign-in name and password your administrator gave you.

For details, see Signing in with SSO.

Why do I sometimes need to sign in again while using the Admin console?

You need to sign back in to the Admin console after each hour of use. This requirement helps to keep your organization's Google service secure.

How does enabling Single Sign-On (SSO) affect sign-in if I'm an administrator?

If you're a super administrator and you try to sign in to, you're asked to enter your full administrator address ( and password. You're then redirected to the Admin console after you sign in. Google does not redirect you to the SSO server.

If you don't have super administrator privileges and try to sign at, you are redirected to the SSO sign-in page.

I use Chrome’s password manager to remember my Google account username and password

With Google Chrome, you can manage your website passwords, letting you save a username and password so that Chrome automatically completes the sign-in fields for you the next time you visit these websites. The new two-step sign-in flow for all Google accounts does not impact the behavior of the password manager; it will still auto-complete the sign-in fields for you.

What happens if I don’t have a public profile?

If you don’t have a public profile picture, Google displays a blue avatar image instead. To manage your Google+ profile, see Share a post on Google+.
