Tech Tip: Why Use Sign in with Google?

The Sign in with Google option helps you easily and securely sign into a website while using your existing Google Account.  For example, social media, music streaming, and online shopping let you link your Google Account to improve your experience.

By entering the Google credentials, you will be logged into the website without having to create a separate login and password.
