New sign-in page for OCMail and other Google services

Feb. 14, 2014

Jacquelynn Hongosh

All Google Apps services are getting a new sign-in page that’s consistent regardless of the URL from where you sign in. When you go to, you'll see a new login box that will require not just your username but your entire Oberlin email address. The rollout of this new sign-in page began in January and is expected to appear for all OCMail users by March 1.

The new sign-in page requires users to sign in with their full email address (example: The old sign-in pages only required users to enter their username.

The Stay signed in checkbox is selected by default. Users who want to sign out of Google Apps automatically when they close their browser should deselect this checkbox. Users who leave this checkbox selected when they sign in will remain signed in for two weeks or until they click the Sign out button that appears when they click their photo in the upper right corner.
