Frequently Asked Questions

Will logging out of ManageBac log me out of all my Google apps using the same account?

No - logging out of ManageBac will only log you out of ManageBac. You will remain logged into Google. Therefore we recommend using this service from your personal computer. If using a shared computer, ensure you log out of Google entirely before ending your session

Can users still log in using their old ManageBac credentials when Login with Google is enabled?

Yes, you can choose to log in using your ManageBac username and password or with Google.

Does enabling Login with Google create new accounts or change emails of existing accounts on ManageBac?

No. It allows users whose ManageBac ID is associated with Google to log in, but does not change any existing accounts.

Does the Google account need to be associated with the school or can any user with a Google account log into ManageBac?

This depends on the "allowed domain" in Google. If left blank, any user with a Google email can log in (as long as they already have a ManageBac ID associated with that email). If an allowed domain is specified, only users with emails associated with that Google domain can log in with Google.
