Stop ‘Sign in with Google’ Pop-up Requests

Are you looking to prevent 'Sign in with Google' pop-ups? Learn how to manage and stop those prompts from appearing across different sites.

Most websites are moving towards passwordless account management that quickly helps users ‘Sign in with Google’. However, these pop-ups create an annoying experience.

You can disable the pop-ups by turning off the toggle switch for ‘Google Account sign-in prompts’.

You can also enhance the privacy settings in the browser to block the sign-in request.

Stop “Sign in with Google” Pop-ups on your browser

Google offers a passwordless sign-in option where the users can create an account on a website without a username and password. It helps in seamless sign-in and no headache to remember the account password.

However, the websites are sending these signup prompts to register an account with them even though the users are not interested. It has not been enjoyable for many Google Chrome users, which is a product of Google.

Not just the Chrome browser but the Mac users have reported they are receiving the sign-in prompt even on the Safari browser. And are very serious about stopping these pop-ups.

I have thoroughly researched and tested the Google account sign-in prompt on different settings. But it might not work for every browser. Hence, sharing the list of troubleshooting that you can follow.

Turn Off Google Account Sign-in Prompts

The Google Account settings allow you to toggle off the switch to turn off the sign-in prompts. It is the most effective way to stop the prompts. Here are the steps to access the settings:

  1. Open your browser and access Google’s My Account page.
  2. Switch to the Security tab in the right sidebar.
  3. Scroll down to the Your connection to third-party apps and services section, and click on See all connections link.

  5. Turn Off the toggle button for Google Account Sign-in prompts option.

It will disable the sign-in prompts where Google account sign-in is supported across all the websites. You can visit the website that was bugging you with sign-in prompts to verify if this works.

Disable Auto Sign-in

The auto sign-in feature in the web browser tries to lookup for the sign-in information saved for making a sign-in attempt. The feature will automatically log in to the website without user interaction. It’s the part of Chrome Password Manager that stores the login credentials.

In the Chrome browser, you can visit chrome://password-manager/settings in the address bar and disable the toggle button for Sign-in automatically option.

Enable Pop-up Blockers

The pop-up blockers are enabled on the browser by default. However, we can check the settings to ensure that pop-ups are blocked. While it is ineffective for blocking Google account sign-in pop-ups, it works sometimes.

Browser Specific Settings

There are a few additional settings specific to a browser that you can change to stop the Google sign-in prompts. You can use these settings along with the ones mentioned earlier.

For Google Chrome

Few users have recommended changing the default search engine in Google Chrome from Google.com to something else (like DuckDuckGo, etc.), and it has worked for them to stop receiving the prompts.

You can check our article on customizing the search engine on Chrome.

The passwordless sign-in process was introduced to improve the user’s experience and make things easy. However, the feature is being misused, and we have added this annoying pop-up to the sign-in with Google account.

The methods mentioned above will surely help you to suppress these prompts. I’ve turned off the Google My Account settings option to stop the sign-in prompts, and it works well.
