Google Account

google account, google account sign up
A Google Account is a user account that provides access authentication and authorization to online services by Google Not all Google products require an account, including Google Search, Youtube, Google Books, Google Finance, Google Maps, and many others A Google Account is required for the use of Gmail, Google+, Google Hangouts, Blogger, and others

After a Google Account is created, the owner may selectively enable or disable various Google applications

YouTube and Blogger maintain separate accounts for users who registered with the services before the Google acquisition However, effective April 2011 YouTube users are required to link to a separate Google Account if they wish to continue to log in to that service

Google Account users may create a publicly accessible Google profile, to configure their presentation on Google products to other Google users A Google profile can be linked to a user's profiles on various social-networking and image-hosting sites, as well as user blogs

Third-party service providers may implement service authentication for Google Account holders via the Google Account mechanism

While creating a Google account, users are asked to provide a recovery email address to allow them to reset their password if they have forgotten it, or if their account is hacked In some countries, such as the United States, the United Kingdom and India, Google may also require one-time use of a mobile phone number to send an account validation code by SMS text messaging or voice message when creating a new account

Google also offers a 2-step verification option—for additional security against hacking—that requests a validation code each time the user logs into their Google account The code is either generated by an application "Google Authenticator" or received from Google as an SMS text message, a voice message, or an email to another account Trusted devices can be "marked" to skip this 2-step log-on authentication When this feature is switched on, software that cannot provide the validation code eg IMAP and POP3 clients must use a unique 16-character alphanumeric password generated by Google instead of the user's normal password

On June 5, 2012, a new security feature was introduced to protect users from state-sponsored attacks Whenever Google analysis indicate that a government has attempted to compromise an account, a notice will be displayed that reads "Warning: We believe state-sponsored attackers may be trying to compromise your account or computer"

Account blocking

Google may block an account for various reasons, such as "unusual activity" or entering an age "not old enough" to own a Google account Reactivation is possible using web-forms, providing proof of identity through valid photo ID, or a small credit card payment at a cost of 030 USD Other methods such as sending a fax or uploading some requested document require human interaction and may take some "days or a couple of weeks" to be accomplished

Third party use

A provider of an authenticated web applications can delegate the authentication function to Google When a user tries to gain access to a secure resource on the third party website they are redirected to the Google Accounts login page Here they will see an explanation of why they need to log in with their Google credentials Any data which is to be shared with the third party will also be listed on this screen Once authentication has succeeded the user is redirected back to the referring site along with a token identifying them as having logged in via Google
