If you use a Chrome-based browser, whether it’s Google Chrome, Edge Chromium, Brave, or others you may experience an annoying pop up Google Sign In Pop Up window asking if you want to login with your Google account. This is called Google Sign In One Tap and looks something like what is pictured below.

Google One Tap Sign In

This can be immensely frustrating, particularly when you already have a login for the site and now Google is trying to hijack everything and login yourself. It’s also annoying because random sites with registration that you may never want to register or log in to can attempt to log you in with this Google Sign In notification.

Sites that sign in with Google and prompt with a pop-up style notification window include Best Buy, Medium, eBay and more than I could list.

It’s easy to turn off, but, what’s a little unexpected is you don’t need to disable a setting in your browser.

Disable Google Sign In Chrome Notification

Just a reminder, this works on all browsers not just Chrome.

  1. Go to this Google Permissions Page (you must sign into Google).
  2. Slide the switch to the Off position. It should look like this.

Google Sign In Off

You’re done! The Google Sign In notification prompt will be permanently disabled. You can still login to sites with Google if you want, you just won’t get that Google Sign In pop up on sites like eBay, Medium, and everywhere else.

Tip: Just remember to do this for any and all accounts using a Google login. That means not just GMail, but if your work uses Google Apps you need to switch off Google Account Sign In prompts on that account as well. The change is account specific and will be effective on any browser you use with that Google account.

The good news, this also will fix the problem on Chrome mobile as well.

Alternate Method (Not Recommended)

For completeness, another method some people recommend is using an adblocker to block the Google Sign In notification prompts by blocking this address:

smartlock.google.com

This does work, but it may have unintended secondary consequences. Sharin g it though, because you may want a more brute force way of blocking those Google Sign In prompts.

Hope all of the above helps.
