Set up a password for your page

By setting up a password for your Google+ page, you're able to take advantage of numerous third party tools that link to your Google account. You'll also be able to sign in directly to your page instead of going through another account that owns or manages the page. This feature is currently not available to pages owned by Google Apps accounts or users under the age of 18.

You'll also be able to use other Google services when logged in as your page, such as YouTube and Gmail.

Set up a password

You can request a password to log in to Google+ directly as your page in order to take advantage of third-party tools.

  1. Open Google+. Place your cursor in the top left corner for the Google+ main menu.
  2. Click Pages > Manage this page on the page you'd like to manage.
  3. From the top left corner, choose Dashboard >   Settings
  4. Scroll down to "Third party tools" and click Set up a password.
Note: Only a page owner can request a page password 

Change your username and receive email

The automatically-generated username you receive cannot receive emails. Rather, page-related notifications will continue to be sent to the email address set for notification delivery in your page settings. Learn how to change these notification settings.

You can create a Gmail address specifically for your page, allowing you to customize your page username and receive emails at this address. First, set up your password, then visit http://mail.google.com while signed in as your page.

Transfer ownership of your page

If you decide to transfer the ownereship of your page to one of the page managers, the new owner will have to go through the same steps above to create a new password. The username wil remain the same.
