Google has created a new sign-in page:
- This new sign-in page provides a streamlined and cohesive sign-in experience, and it has improved account hijacking protection.
- The new sign-in page requires users to sign in with their full email address (example: firstname.lastname@example.org) the old sign-in page only required users to enter their username (example:joe123).
- The “Stay signed in” check box is selected by default. Users who want to sign out of email automatically when they close their browser should deselect this check box. Users who leave this check box selected when they sign in will remain signed in for two weeks or until they click the “Sign out” button. (Not recommended for shared computers).
- The email sign-in page can no longer be personalized with colors and custom logos.
