Learn about third-party sign-in

Third-party sign-in is a type of federated sign-in that allows you to log in with an identity service, instead of creating unique login credentials for each individual website you visit. If you allow third-party sign-in prompts, then as you browse the web, you may receive dialogs that ask if you want to sign in with an identity service.

You can sign into websites with Chrome through an identity service of your choice. An identity service stores and manages your sign-in information and identity across the web per your permission.

Manage third-party sign-in prompts

To select your third-party sign-in prompt preferences:

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More Organize and then Settings.
  3. On the left, click Privacy and security and then Site settings.
  4. Under “Content,” click Additional content settings and then Third-party sign-in.
  5. Select the setting you like:
    • Sites can show sign-in prompts from identity services
    • Block sign-in prompts from identity services

Tip: If you block this feature, Chrome won’t show native prompts to sign in through your identity service, but the website you’re visiting or your identity service may still be able to show you similar prompts. Besides, you can still log in with your identity service via the typical sign-in buttons or your username and password.
