Tip: If you use Chrome, you may find the website URL "Sign in to Exampleapp.com" instead of the app name "Sign in to Example App" in the prompt. Learn more about third-party sign-in prompts in Chrome.
Automatic Sign-in

Important: To use Automatic Sign-in, you must already be signed in to your Google Account and have previously granted consent to share your profile with the third party for the purpose of signing in. If you haven't granted consent to the third party, the Google sign-in prompt appears.

To provide a seamless experience, Automatic Sign-in removes the manual steps to sign in when you return to an app or service. A dialog box shows the process of the sign in as it occurs.

Why use Sign in with Google

Sign in with Google makes it easy for you to sign in and sign up to websites and apps across the internet with the trusted security of your Google Account. It eliminates your dependency on passwords, which reduces the frustrations and security risks associated with them.

Improved security

When you use Sign in with Google, you create a secure, passwordless account with the third party service. This means you don’t have to use unique usernames and passwords for each third-party service.
When you use Sign in with Google, you reduce the number of apps and services where passwords need to be stored. Sign in with Google also ensures the secure transfer of authentication information.
Since you can use Google Account to log in to multiple apps and services, we work to ensure the safety of your experiences with your favorite apps and websites. For example, we enforce the use of HTTPS to encrypt your data. This makes browsing safer and prevents insecure sign-in experiences.
Our secure technology, Cross-Account Protection, also helps detect suspicious events on your account. It shares security notifications with participating third-party apps and services you connect to your Google Account. That way, third-party apps and services can use Google’s suspicious event detection to help keep you safer online.

Preserve your privacy

Important: We never share your Google Account password with a third party.

Your privacy is important, so it’s easy for you to control what information is shared and with whom.
