eBay Google Sign-In to be rolled out on Android

No primary category set

eBay are quietly rolling out an eBayGoogle Sign-in as an alternative to your normal eBay User Name and Password combination, starting with Android for eBay.com. They say that Using Google Sign-In for eBay Android application is a logical evolution of utilizing Google’s verified identity to ensure that the user is provided a secure, but a simpler, login method in their eBay mobile app.

The interesting part of this isn’t for new users but for existing users who already have a User Name and Password as the Google credentials need to marry to the existing account. The Google login flow helps users establish their identity and also ensures that their future login attempts are simple and just a click away.

Logging in with eBay Google Sign-In

For Android users, once their eBay and Google accounts are connected it’s an easy one click log in process – they’ve already got their smartphone with them so Google knows who they are. Once the user has successfully enrolled, they can use the Google Identity to login for their future attempts. This gives a more streamlined and secure mechanism of logging into the eBay app.

Naturally users will also be provided the capability to disable Google Sign-In from Google App permissions and from eBay settings as well.

It’s expected that eBay will expanding the use of eBay Google Sign-In to other devices (I’m guessing Apple is next) and for users logging in through browsers on the web.
