Chrome – How to disable Google One Tap sign-up prompts

browsergoogle-accountsgoogle-chrome

I've recently begun seeing common pop-ups on sites on which I do not have an account.

The pop-ups prompt me with my real name and Google sign-in email, which is being provided either by being signed in to Google/Gmail or being signed in to the desktop Chrome browser.

Sign in to example.com with Google

Your Name
email@example.com

CONTINUE AS NAME

To create your account, Google will share your name, email address, and profile picture with example.com. By continuing, you agree to example.com's privacy policy and terms of service.

The functionality providing this seems to be variously called: "Google One Tap", "Google YOLO", "You Only Log-in Once", the GoogleYOLO API for OpenYOLO, "Google One-tap sign-up and automatic sign-in", "Google Account sign-in prompts", "Sign in with Google", "Log in with Google", "Join with Google".

One-tap sign-up and automatic sign-in

You can provide seamless authentication flows to your users with Google's one-tap sign-up and automatic sign-in APIs.

With one-tap sign-up, users are prompted to create an account with a dialog that's inline with your page's content, so they're never taken out of context by a sign-up page. With just one tap, they get a secure, token-based, passwordless account with your service, protected by their Google Account. And, of course, since there's such little sign-up friction, users are much more likely to register.

I frequently see the pop-up, obscuring the content, when I follow a link to Medium.com.

It is also being added to other random websites across the internet:

Large websites using this sign-in method include:

  • Sign in to medium.com with Google
  • Sign in to nytimes.com with Google
  • Sign in to eBay with Google
  • Sign in to Quora with Google
  • Sign in to trulia.com with Google
  • Sign in to Tripadvisor with Google
  • Use Pinterest with Google
  • Use hipmunk.com with Google
  • Create a wayfair.com account with Google

I don't object in principle to using my Google account to sign up for a service, but I do not want these pop-ups obscuring the site contents on page load.

This pop-up feels like a "notification" from Chrome, prompting me to use my signed-in Chrome account. It appears to be something I should be able to disable, like Chrome notifications, in my local copy of my web browser software.

Or, if not a Chrome browser notification, it also feels like something I should be able to disable from my Google account settings.

How do I disable these pop-ups and ensure they are not shown on any website? Settings-type changes preferred over content blockers, if possible.

You can disable these prompts from your Google account's permissions page:

https://myaccount.google.com/permissions

Or go into your Google Account Settings and to the Security Tab. Here you will find a section "Signing in to other sites". Select the "Signing in with Google" link to get to your permissions site.

Don't be fooled by the toggle since it currently doesn't seem to display the toggle state correctly. Click it once and refresh.
