Plugin / Google Apps Login

Lever Technology LLC



Google Apps Login allows existing WordPress user accounts to login to your website using Google to securely authenticate their account. This means that if they are already logged into Gmail for example, they can simply click their way through the WordPress login screen – no username or password is explicitly required!

Google Apps Login uses the latest secure OAuth2 authentication recommended by Google, including 2-factor Auth if enabled for your G Suite (formerly Google Apps) accounts.
This is far simpler to configure than the older SAML protocol.

Trusted by thousands of organizations from schools to large public companies, Google Apps Login is the most popular enterprise grade plugin enabling login and user management based on your Google Apps domain.

Plugin setup requires you to have admin access to any G Suite (Google Apps) domain, or a regular Gmail account, to register and obtain two simple codes from Google.

Support and Premium features

Full support and premium features are also available for purchase:

Eliminate the need for G Suite (Google Apps) domain admins to separately manage WordPress user accounts, and get peace
of mind that only authorized employees have access to your organizations’s websites and intranet.

See our website at for more details.

The Premium version allows everyone in your G Suite (Google Apps) domain to login to WordPress – an account will be automatically created in WordPress if one doesn’t already exist.

Our Enterprise version goes further, allowing you to specify granular access and role controls based on Google Group or Organizational Unit membership.
You can also see logs of accounts created and roles changed by the plugin.

Extensible Platform

Google Apps Login allows you to centralize your site’s Google functionality and build your own extensions, or use third-party extensions, which require no configuration themselves and share the same user authentication and permissions that users already allowed for Google Apps Login itself.

Using our platform, your website appears to Google accounts as one unified ‘web application’, making it more secure and easier to manage.

Google Drive Embedder is an extension plugin allowing
users to browse for Google Drive documents to embed directly in their posts or pages.

Google Apps Directory is an extension plugin allowing
logged-in users to search your Google Apps employee directory from a widget on your intranet or client site.

Google Profile Avatars
is available on our website. It displays users’ Google profile photos in place of their avatars throughout your site.

Google Apps Login works on single or multisite WordPress websites or private intranets.


One-click login will work for the following domains and user accounts:

  • G Suite Basic (Google Apps for Work)
  • G Suite Business (Google Apps Unlimited for Work)
  • G Suite for Education (Google Apps for Education)
  • G Suite for Non-profits (Google Apps for Non-profits)
  • G Suite for Government (Google Apps for Government)
  • Personal and emails

Google Apps Login uses the latest secure OAuth2 authentication recommended by Google. Other 3rd party authentication plugins may allow you to use your Google username and password to login, but they do not do this securely unless they also use OAuth2. This is discussed further in the FAQ.
