Google Sign In Page Gets New Design

The page to sign in to your UCSC Google Account will look a little different beginning Wednesday, April 5. Google has created a brand new unified design for its sign in page that will have the same look and feel on all devices you use.

Google notes that the new design won't change the functionality of the sign in page at all. The steps remain the same to sign in to your UCSC Google account with your email address and Blue password. The new page will look the same regardless of whether you are using a PC or Mac, an iPhone or iPad, or an Android device.

Benefits to the new sign in page: 
  • Have a cleaner, simpler look.
  • Make the sign-in process faster.
  • Be consistent across computers, phones, and tablets.
Here is a screenshot of what it will look like:

Tip: Make sure you have set up 2-factor authentication for your Google Account as it improves the security of the account significantly.
