Do not want to use Google Signin

Hi,
I am using google sign-in to do the login to Upwork.

But now, I do not want to use my google sign anymore.

I want to use a separate Upwork username & password to login.

 

Please guide.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi all,

 

If you need help signing in to your account, weโ€™ll need to ask you to confirm some private account details in order to help you. At Upwork, protecting your privacy is our priority.

How do I reach a human in customer support?

Hi Vaibhava,

 

Could you please go to Settings > Connected Services and disconnect your Google account? Let us know if you need any further assistance. 

 

Thanks for reaching out to us.

Hi Bojan,

I tried the suggested solution but it throws me an error - 'Email uses google sign in'. Please suggest a better solution.

Hi Abhishek,


First, you will need to log in via browser and then go to Settings > Connected Services and click on the disconnect button. Once this is done you will be able to log in with your email/username and password. Thank you.

While using the Google Signin, the following Settings menu options are not available:

1) Login using Google Signin

2) Select Settings

3) Attempt to click Profile Settings or Connected Services

Expected: That I would be able to access and change Connecter Services under Settings

Actual: All these links forward to Password & security

 

Under the Password & security page, there is an edit icon and a message that says this profile uses Google Signin

1) Select Password & security

2) Click the edit icon

3) Attempt to change the password

Expected: Ability to disable the Google Signin

Actual: Changes a pointless password instead

Hi Emil,

Could you please click on my picture next to this post and send me a private message with more info about the account you need help with?

Hi Andrea,

I am not able to log in using Google sign-in. My Gmail was provided by my university. After graduation, this email was not available. Meanwhile, I did not find how to use my username and password to log in. I would be very grateful if you could help me log in using other methods. Thank you.

 

Kind regards,

Xinlei

Hi Frances,

Could you please click on my name above this post and send me a private message with more info about the account you need help with?

hello Andrea, what difference does it make if I am registered through google or through my login password

Hi Serdar,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. When signing up using the google sign-in option, as long as you are logged in on your google account, you don't need to enter a password when logging in to your Upwork profile. Whereas using your own login email address and password, you'll have to enter your credentials.

I also have a similar issue. I no longer want to use google sign in to access my account. I want to be able to log in with a username and password.

Hi Justice,

 

You can disable the Google sign in option by going to Settings > Connected Services. Thank you.

~ Goran
Upwork

Hi Abhishek,

Please check your security question, did you fill it already?

Because the security question is mandatory for changing the login from google to own username.

 

Thanks

I am using google sign-in to do the login to Upwork.

But now, I do not want to use my google sign anymore.

I want to use a separate Upwork username & password to log-in.

Please check attached screenshot.
When I try to go on "Settings > Connected Services" they redirect me on "Password & security" page.

Waiting for your reply asap.

 

Thanks

 

Hi Praveen,

 

Could you please try clearing your cache and cookies or logging in with a different browser to see if the issue persists? If so, please let us know.

 

Thanks!

I have already checked with different browser as well check on another mac. Still unable to go on "Settings > Connected Services" page. Also, tried to copy and paste the link "https://www.upwork.com/ab/my-info/connected-services" into the browser new tab but they redirect me on "Password & security" page.

 

Please suggest a better solution.

 

Thanks

Hi Bilal,

 

I checked but could not replicate the issue you are experiencing. Could you please clear your cache and cookies or log in with another browser to check if the issue persists?

 

After you tried clearing cache and cookies could you please go to Settings > Connected Services and disconnect your Google account? Let us know if you need any further assistance. 

 

Thank you,

I don't want to use google sign in either. And I can't even sign in with my account **Edited for Community Guidelines** , needed to create a new one to write this. Why creating a support ticket is such a pain on your platform? 

 

p.s already cleared cash, tried to sign in through different devices - no result.

Hello User,

 

One of our team members will reach out to you via ticket as soon as possible and assist you further.

 

Thank you.

Hello,

I have the same problem: I'd like to log in with a password instead of using google sign-in. Whenever I try to go on "Settings > Connected Services" it always redirects me to the "Password & security" page. Using different browsers didn't help.
Thanks for your help.

thanks for this query .. Love it 

Hi Bojan, same thing. However, when I go to the connected services, it is asking me for a security question which I know the answer and typed but it says, I have reached the maximum number of tries which I don't. https://prnt.sc/W7p5-uw_GEnz

Can you please help? I would like to change my settings to a login not linked to google account. Thank you

Hi there, I created the account and currently logging in with Google.

I'd like to remove this access and log in with standard email + password,is it possible?

I've set a password from my profile however when i attempt it says that my account uses google sign in to log in so apparently i'm forced to use this method.

Thanks for your support

Seen the way to solve it, as in 

https://community.upwork.com/t5/New-to-Upwork/Do-not-want-to-use-Google-Signin/td-p/702323

 

PASTE:

 

Under the Password & security page, there is an edit icon and a message that says this profile uses Google Signin

1) Select Password & security

2) Click the edit icon

3) Attempt to change the password

Expected: Ability to disable the Google Signin

Actual: Changes a pointless password instead
