After a few unhelpful searches elsewhere (i.e. DuckDuckGo, Reddit, Lemmy, etc.) with no solution, I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask here.
A majority of the sites I frequent, either on desktop or mobile, give a prompt asking if I would like to log into a nonexistent account using Google.
I’m not the only person experiencing this prompt; as I’ve said, I’ve searched and have yet to find a solution that yields the desired result.
Many have implied the solution can be found in Google account settings… I haven’t had an account with Google in over five years now.
With a running VPN, I navigated to the Google search page (just to see, I suppose), and found nothing about opting out of Google’s sign in prompt in the general settings .
If this helps, I am writing this post on an open Firefox tab. Firefox, however, isn’t the only browser on which I’ve experienced this annoyance.
I currently have the uBlock Origin add-on installed on all of my devices.
As per my threat model, the sign in prompt is merely an unwanted nuisance. I no longer wish to see this prompt if at all possible, however, if no solutions are available, I’m sure I’ll survive.
A head’s up: I’ll bookmark this topic, but this account is linked to a throwaway email and I’m unlikely to remember the strong password I’ve generated should I need to provide further information.
Thank you in advance to those interested in helping with my topic.
