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

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

Note: Google is not affiliated with third-party services that ask for authentication. Google simply provides sign-in technology to these sites.

  1. Go to a site or open an app you trust.
  2. On the sign in page, select Sign in with GoogleLog in with Google, or Join with Google.

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

Remove a site or app with access to your account

  1. Open your Google Account. You might need to sign in.
  2. Choose Security.
  3. Scroll down to "Signing in to other sites" and choose Signing in with Google.
  4. Choose the site or app you want to remove and then Remove Access.

Note: If you remove account access from a third-party site or app, it may retain information you provided from:

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

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 sites you’ve connected to your Google Account. That way, third-party apps and sites can use Google’s suspicious event detection to help keep you safer online.

How Cross-Account Protection works

What apps & sites get security notifications from Google

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

  1. Participate in Cross-Account Protection.
  2. Be connected to your Google Account. If an app or site 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 sites to do things like:

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

Manage Cross-Account Protection

See which apps or sites participate
  1. Go to the Apps with access to your account page. You may need to sign in.
  2. Scroll down to the "Signing in with Google" section.
  3. Look for apps or sites that have the Cross-Account Protection badge Cross-account protection icon. If an app or site has the badge, it’s participating in Cross-Account Protection.
Remove account access from participating apps or sites

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

Once you remove access from a participating app or site:

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

Other info about using your Google Account

Using Google to sign in to a third-party site or app

Some sites and apps offer Google Account sign in as an option. This feature allows you to sign in or sign up on that site or app using your Google Account information.

You should grant permission only if you trust the site or app.

You can also sign in to a third-party site or app from Google services. For example, you could connect a music service to your Google Account using the Google Assistant.

What information does Google share with these sites or apps?

These third-party sites or apps can request the name, email address, and profile picture associated with your account.

Why Google shares this information

This information makes it possible to connect your Google Account with a third-party app or site.

For example, you could connect your Google Account with a third-party music app. That way, you could play your favorite playlists using your Google Home.

Your Google Account email address is used to:

  • Check if you have an existing account with a third-party app or site.
  • Connect your Google Account to an account you already have with a third-party app or site.
  • Create an account with a third-party app or site that’s connected to your Google Account.

Third-party apps or sites may use this information in other ways as described in their privacy policy or elsewhere.

What other information does Google share with these sites or apps?

Separate from the profile information you provide when you sign in, a site or app can request permission to access data in any of the Google services you use. When a site or app requests access to other data in your account, you’ll have a chance to review what level of access it’s requesting before you decide. You should grant permission only if you trust the site or app.

Common issue: Trouble signing in to Facebook

Facebook does not use Google Account sign-in. Changing your Google Account password will not change the password for your Facebook account.

Important: Google does not review or endorse sites and apps that allow you to sign in with a Google Account, and takes no responsibility for those sites. If you do not trust the site or app that is requesting access, you should not confirm that you want to use your Google Account to sign in.
