Sign in to QuickBooks Online with Google

SOLVEDby QuickBooksQuickBooks Online6Updated August 23, 2022

Learn how to use Google Single Sign-On (SSO) to sign in to QuickBooks Online.

Sign in to your QuickBooks account using your user ID and password. 

Google SSO allows you to sign in to your QuickBooks Online account using your Google credentials. With Google SSO, you only need to log in once and you can easily switch between Google Workspace and QuickBooks Online.

Here's how Google SSO works with QuickBooks Online.

Google SSO and QuickBooks

Google Single Sign-On enables users to access all their enterprise cloud applications by signing in one time for all services. To log in to QuickBooks Online using your Google credentials, select Sign in with Google, then enter your Google email/phone and password.

Google Workspace and QuickBooks

Google Workspace is a set of intelligent apps connecting all the people in your company. It's currently available for QuickBooks Online in selected regions.

Access QuickBooks from Google Workspace

If you're already signed into Google Workspace and type in the URL for QuickBooks Online into a new tab or page, it won't recognize the SSO user. You must launch from the app launcher or app card in Google Workspace.

If you're new to QuickBooks Online, you must use the credentials you used to sign up for your QuickBooks Online account. We recommend using different credentials for your Google Workspace account.

If you're an existing QuickBooks Online user, the SSO will kick in after launching the app. Select Sign in at the top of the page.

Reset your password for Google Workspace

You can go through the usual "forgot password" process for Google Workspace. After resetting your password:

  1. Open QuickBooks Online within Google Workspace.
  2. A window opens prompting you to enter the new QuickBooks Online credentials.
  3. Complete the MFA verification steps.
  4. After sign-in completes, SSO uses the new credentials.

Disconnect QuickBooks Online from Google Workspace

  1. Go to your sign in page and use your QuickBooks credentials. This should be different from what you use to sign in to Google Workspace.
  2. Select the Intuit Account icon at the top-right, then Manage your Intuit Account
  3.  Select Sign in & security.
  4. In the Linked Identities section, locate the Signed in With Google identity, then select Remove.
  5. Confirm you are removing the permission of Google to access QuickBooks Online.
  6. Select Remove to complete the disconnect process.

Frequently Asked Questions

The feature isn't recommended for mobile users. If you've already created a link to Google, you'll need to de-link the account. See the Frequently Asked Question below for steps.

If you have a password you use to link to Google, use it to sign in to QuickBooks. If desired, de-link your account to permanently remove the Google link from your account.

If you don’t have a password, please create a password. Use this new password for future logins on the mobile app. If desired, de-link your account to permanently remove the Google link from your account.

While Google SSO isn't available for every Intuit product, Intuit credentials are linked across all our products.

For example, If you used Google SSO for your QuickBooks Online account and later want to start a Mint or TurboTax account, which doesn't have the SSO feature available, you'll likely receive an error message saying “This account already exists”.

In this case, please create a new password and proceed to sign in to Mint or TurboTax using your new password.

All existing users can sign up to start using SSO as long as they have an existing Gmail account. All you have to do is select Sign in with Google and follow the prompted actions. You must use your Gmail password to create the link.

Absolutely not. Google sign on only allows you to sign in and sign up. No other permissions are requested from or allowed by Google.

  1. Sign in using your Intuit credentials.
  2. Select the Intuit Account icon at the top right, then Manage your Intuit Account.
  3. On the Intuit Accounts Settings page, select Sign in & security.
  4. In the Linked Identities section, locate Signed in With Google identity.
  5. Select Remove next to the Google Identity you need to de-link.
  6. Select Remove again to confirm, then Exit.

Currently, we don't recommend this for Accountants.
