Gmail login and magicfill


Recommended Posts

Until Google closes this tiny loophole, you can use this link for the good ol' one-screen sign-in:

https://accounts.google.com/ServiceLogin?service=grandcentral&continue=https://mail.google.com/mail/

 

The way I came up with this link was after I noticed my Google Voice ("grandcentral" above) was still using the old sign-in page, then just a few mins ago after reading this topic I decided to do some genetic experimentation and attached a totally unrelated "continue=" tag to it. It worked!

If you setup an alias "gm" for that link, then it's very quick to re-login to one of your other Gmail accounts (I personally have about 10 that I use on a weekly basis). Just make sure to always uncheck "Stay signed-in" before hitting the Sign-in button. The switching from account to account should be done via Maxthon's Magic Fill (double-clicking inside Email field to see all site-specific (Google) Magic Fill matches) rather than the Google multi-account interface. At least that's how I make it work for me...

 

But really, the future should be for Maxthon to recognize these multi-step login scenarios. It should be relatively simple to do algorithmically. I'm gonna predict that other big boys (Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Facebook) will copy this multi-step login scheme in the coming years for similar reasons to Google's.

A new method I've devised which works as of right now:

URL Alias gmo (which stands for Gmail Out) links to https://accounts.google.com/logout

URL Alias gm (which stands for Gmail) links to https://gmail.com  (without www).

 

Whenever you want to switch Gmail accounts, type gmo <enter> in address bar (or manually sign-out of the current Google account), and then type gm <enter> in the address bar. You should then see the good old one-screen sign-in page. Just make sure to always uncheck "Stay signed-in" before hitting the Sign-in button. If you forget, then manually sign-out of the "remembered" account, click "Sign in with a different account", then click Remove and remove all remembered Google accounts (cookies).

Thanks

There's no need to use retro mode. Make sure you not only sign-out of your account, but also remove any "remembered" Google accounts.

 

Manually sign-out of the "remembered" account.

Click "Sign in with a different account".

Click Remove.

Remove all remembered Google accounts by clicking on the X that now appears next to them.

 

Next time you sign-in to a Google account, make sure to always uncheck "Stay signed-in" before hitting the Sign-in button.

 

At that point you should be able to use "gm" to sign-in, and "gmo" to sign-out of your different Google accounts.

 

And again I'll clarify: you'll always need to use "gm" to sign-in...no matter how you signed-out, because a sign-out will always automatically redirect you to the wrong sign-in page...

 

Edit: As of this morning 7/24/15 EST, the http://gmail.comredirect trick is no longer working. Right now I'm close to the point of changing all my Gmail passwords to a single (shared), strong password, and enter this password as a new Magic Fill "General Identity" called "Gmail accounts"...

 

Though that may not be necessary just yet. I've noticed that if I have a few remembered accounts (I see the "Choose an account" page as shown in the picture attached), then I can double-click on the password field and select any of my Gmail accounts (stored in Magic Fill). Despite showing a different Email address and name, if you selected the "password" for a different Email account, apparently behind the scenes it also pushes the Email address associated with it, since it'll log-in to that account!
