Google has announced that the OpenID 2.0 API for Google accounts will be retired on April 20 2015

As a result, OpenID is being replaced by Google Connect API / Google + API for authentication.

What does this mean to me and are there any settings that will need to be changed to ensure I can login in the future?

If you are reading this before April 20 please do the following:

  1. Sign in as normal using the older Google Link (Most of you should already be signed in by default)

    alt text
    3. Click your Name at the top of the page to go to your profile
    4. On your profile page near your name is a drop down for "User Tools". Select the drop down and choose "Authentication Settings"
    5. Click "Add new provider" 6. select the new Google link

    alt text
    7. Log out and verify you can login with the new provider.

After April 20th the old Google Link will be removed.

If you are reading this after this date you can do the following to fix your account.

  1. Go to the login page
  2. Select at the bottom "Click HERE if you are having trouble signing in"
  3. This will e-mail you a temporary Signin option.
  4. Once you click the link you will be placed at the page to add a new provider. Choose this option and choose the new Google login button as indicated above
