New sign-in page for Google Apps customers

Posted: 21 Jan 2014 10:58 AM PST on The official update feed from the Google Apps team

The new sign-in page that was announced last November will be rolling out over the next four weeks starting today. With this change, the sign-in page for all Google Apps customers will be updated to be consistent across all Google Apps services. In other words, the sign-in page for Gmail will now be identical to the sign-in page for Google Calendar, Google Drive, or any other Google Apps service. This change will improve security and make it easier for users to switch between accounts. This means a few things for your organization:

  • The Google Apps sign-in page can no longer be personalized with colors and custom logos. It will now look the same across all Google sign-in pages
  • Users will have to log in with their full email address (example: [email protected])
