Use your Google Account to sign in to other apps or services

You can use your Google Account to sign in to third-party apps and services. You won't have to remember individual usernames and passwords for each account.

Third-party apps and services are created by companies or developers that aren’t Google.

  1. Go to an app or service you trust.
  2. On the sign in page, tap Sign in with GoogleLog in with Google, or Join with Google.

You should only grant permission if you trust the app or service. The app  or service may also automatically sign you in the next time you use it.

Stop signing in with Google

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open your device's Settings app and then Google and then Manage your Google Account.
  2. At the top, tap Security.
  3. Under "Signing in to other sites," tap Signing in with Google.
  4. Tap the app or service you want to remove and then Remove access.

Important: If you remove account access from a third-party app or service, it may retain info you provided from:

  • When you signed in with your Google Account
  • When you granted additional Google Account access to the app or service

Improved security for accounts connected to Google

Our security technology helps detect suspicious events to better protect your Google Account. With Cross-Account Protection, we can share security notifications about suspicious events with apps and services you’ve connected to your Google Account. That way, third-party apps and services can use Google’s suspicious event detection to help keep you safer online.

How Cross-Account Protection works

What apps & services get security notifications from Google

To get security notifications from Google, an app or service needs to:

  1. Participate in Cross-Account Protection.
  2. Be connected to your Google Account. If an app or service is connected to your Google Account, you’ve either:
When security notifications are sent

Security notifications are sent when a sensitive event happens on your Google Account. Examples of sensitive events can include your:

  • Account being hacked
  • Account being suspended or disabled
  • Account being signed out from your devices or browsers
How security notifications are used

Security notifications can be used by Google and participating apps and services to do things like:

  • Better identify suspicious activity on your account
  • Sign you out of the participating app or service to help secure your account

Manage Cross-Account Protection

See which apps or services participate
  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open your device's Settings app and then Google and then Google Account.
  2. At the top, tap Security.
  3. Scroll down to "Signing in to other sites" and tap Signing in with Google.
  4. Under "Third-party apps with account access," look for apps or services that have the Cross-Account Protection badge Cross-account protection icon. If an app or service has the badge, it’s participating in Cross-Account Protection.
Remove account access from participating apps or services

If you no longer want to use an app or service that’s participating in Cross-Account Protection, you can remove its access to your account.

Once you remove access from a participating app or service:

  • It will get a final notification that the connection has been stopped.
  • It will no longer receive security reports for your Google Account.
