Sign in to your Admin console

This article is for people who manage Google services or devices for a company, school, or group. If you're using a personal (@gmail.com) account, go to the Google Account Help Center.

If you have access to an administrator (or admin) account, you can sign in to the Google Admin console. The Admin console is where administrators manage Google services for people in an organization. 

Sign in now (requires an admin account)

  1. In any web browser, go to admin.google.com.
  2. Starting from the sign-in page, enter the email address and password for your admin account (it does not end in @gmail.com). Forgot your password?

    An admin account has privileges to manage services for other people in your organization. The Admin console is only available when you're signed in to an admin account. If you don't have access to an admin account, get help from someone else who does. Who is my administrator?

    If you see a list of Google Accounts on the sign-in page, be sure to choose your admin account (it does not end in @gmail.com).

Tip: You can switch between accounts on the same computer without signing in each time. For details, see Sign in to multiple accounts at once.

If you forgot your password, see Reset your administrator password.

If you're still having trouble signing in, see Can't sign in to the Admin console.

Questions

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 admin.google.com sends you to a second sign-in page. From here, you sign in to your Admin console and other programs or services your company has set up with SSO at the same time. Just enter the sign-in name and password your administrator gave you.
Can I use Chrome's password manager to remember my Google account username and password?
With Chrome Browser, you can manage your website passwords so that Chrome automatically completes the sign-in fields for you when you visit these websites. The two-step sign-in flow for all Google accounts does not impact the behavior of the password manager. 
Why do I sometimes need to sign in again while using the Admin console?
To keep your organization's Google services secure, you need to sign in to the Admin console after each hour of use.
How does enabling single sign-on (SSO) affect sign-in if I'm an administrator?
If you're a super administrator and you sign in to admin.google.com with your full administrator address (name@yourdomain.com) and password, you're redirected to the Admin console. Google does not redirect you to the SSO server.
If you're not a super administrator and sign in at admin.google.com, you are redirected to the SSO sign-in page.
I'm a reseller. Can I access my customer's Admin console?
It is possible for a reseller to access their customer's Admin console.
  1. Go to admin.google.com/customer_domain.
  2. Sign in with either your own reseller account name and password, or use an administrator account at the customer's domain.
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. You can add a public profile picture on your Google+ profile.
