I've recently begun seeing common pop-ups on sites on which I do not have an account.
The pop-ups prompt me with my real name and Google sign-in email, which is being provided either by being signed in to Google/Gmail or being signed in to the desktop Chrome browser.
Sign in to example.com with Google
CONTINUE AS NAME
The functionality providing this seems to be variously called: "Google One Tap", "Google YOLO", "You Only Log-in Once", the GoogleYOLO API for OpenYOLO, "Google One-tap sign-up and automatic sign-in", "Google Account sign-in prompts", "Sign in with Google", "Log in with Google", "Join with Google".
One-tap sign-up and automatic sign-in
You can provide seamless authentication flows to your users with Google's one-tap sign-up and automatic sign-in APIs.
With one-tap sign-up, users are prompted to create an account with a dialog that's inline with your page's content, so they're never taken out of context by a sign-up page. With just one tap, they get a secure, token-based, passwordless account with your service, protected by their Google Account. And, of course, since there's such little sign-up friction, users are much more likely to register.
I frequently see the pop-up, obscuring the content, when I follow a link to Medium.com.
It is also being added to other random websites across the internet:
Large websites using this sign-in method include:
- Sign in to medium.com with Google
- Sign in to nytimes.com with Google
- Sign in to eBay with Google
- Sign in to Quora with Google
- Sign in to trulia.com with Google
- Sign in to Tripadvisor with Google
- Use Pinterest with Google
- Use hipmunk.com with Google
- Create a wayfair.com account with Google
I don't object in principle to using my Google account to sign up for a service, but I do not want these pop-ups obscuring the site contents on page load.
This pop-up feels like a "notification" from Chrome, prompting me to use my signed-in Chrome account. It appears to be something I should be able to disable, like Chrome notifications, in my local copy of my web browser software.
Or, if not a Chrome browser notification, it also feels like something I should be able to disable from my Google account settings.
How do I disable these pop-ups and ensure they are not shown on any website? Settings-type changes preferred over content blockers, if possible.
