This plugin integrates Google One Tap into WoltLab, which allows registering with a few clicks and without entering any data. Additionally, registered users are logged in automatically or with just one click. The only requirement for this is that the user is logged into Google.
If the user is not logged into Google, the login will fall back to the browser's password manager as long as the Credential Manager API is supported by the browser.
- Increased registration rate
- Simplified sign-up and sign-in
- Automatic sign in with Google Accounts and with saved user accounts from the browser password manager
- Provides the best possible compatibility by extending the existing Google authentication from WoltLab
We have been using the plugin ourselves for a long time and have noticed a very increased registration rate.
Below are statistics of the change in total users and of that the number of Google users.
As you can see, the number of new users (yellow line) increases significantly due to Google registrations (blue line).

Other Features and Things to Know
- With the Google One Tap mobile layout, the cookie notice is moved below the page title so that it is not obscured.
- On the registration page, an optional notice is displayed if a user with the same IP is already registered. (Avoids unintentional duplicate registrations).
- Google One Tap is displayed for guests on all pages that are allowed to be indexed and on the missing permission page.
- A list of browsers and platforms supported by Google One Tap can be found at https://developers.google.com/…guides/supported-browsers.
After the plugin has been installed, "Google Client ID" and "Google Client Secret" must be filled in under Configuration -> Users -> Registration -> Third-Party Authentication. If an ID is already entered here, it should be checked if the OAuth Consent Screen is configured for it. Hereby, the plugin is already activated and usable. To make sure that the OAuth was set up correctly, the register via Google One Tap should be tested once.
A guide to create the required information and configure the OAuth Consent Screen can be found here: https://developers.google.com/…s/get-google-api-clientid
The plugin does not store any additional data, and users who have registered via Google One Tap can simply log in manually through WoltLab's Google Authentication. Uninstalling therefore does not prevent users from logging in.
Finally Google One Tap arrives on WoltLab
Extremely straight forward to setup, as long as you have an oAuth for Google setup and consent screening done. Now, it makes it extremely easier for anyone who uses a Google account to register/sign in with a single click of a button (all information is prefilled if they proceed).
