Google Apps Login allows existing WordPress user accounts to login to your website using Google to securely authenticate their account. This means that if they are already logged into Gmail for example, they can simply click their way through the WordPress login screen – no username or password is explicitly required!
Google Apps Login uses the latest secure OAuth2 authentication recommended by Google, including 2-factor Auth if enabled for your Google Apps accounts.
Plugin setup requires you to have admin access to any Google Apps domain, or a regular Gmail account, to register and obtain two simple codes from Google.
Support and Premium features
Full support and premium features are also available for purchase:
Eliminate the need for Google Apps domain admins to separately manage WordPress user accounts, and get peace of mind that only authorized employees have access to the organizations’s websites and intranet.
Google Apps Login allows you to centralize your site’s Google functionality and build your own extensions, or use third-party extensions, which require no configuration themselves and share the same user authentication and permissions that users already allowed for Google Apps Login itself.
Using our platform, your website appears to Google accounts as one unified ‘web application’, making it more secure and easier to manage.
Google Drive Embedder is a free extension plugin allowing users to browse for Google Drive documents to embed directly in their posts or pages.
Google Apps Directory is a free extension plugin allowing logged-in users to search your Google Apps employee directory from a widget on your intranet or client site.
Google Profile Avatars is available on our website. It displays users’ Google profile photos in place of their avatars throughout your site.
Google Apps Login works on single or multisite WordPress websites or private intranets.

Google Apps Login uses the latest secure OAuth2 authentication recommended by Google. Other 3rd party authentication plugins may allow you to use your Google username and password to login, but they do not do this securely unless they also use OAuth2. This is discussed further in the FAQ.
