Registering an Email Address for a Google Identity
DNAstack currently uses Google as the sole identity provider for logging into Passport. This means that you will need a Google account to successfully complete the sign in process and access DNAstack products. If you do not already a Google account or Google Workspaces account, you can use your existing email address to create one using the steps below.
If you have previously configured your institutional email as an alternate email for a Google Account that you own, you will not be able to use this Google account to log in through Passport. If this is the case, you will need to remove your institutional account as an alternate email prior to using this email address to create a new Google Account.
Steps to create a new Google account with an existing email address:
Step 1: Go to accounts.google.com
Step 2: Click “Create account” and choose “For my personal use”
Step 3: Follow the prompts until it asks you to enter an email
Step 4: Click “Use use your existing email” and enter your institutional email address
Step 5: Follow the prompts through the rest of the account creation process
Step 6: Once the Google Account has been created, use your institutional email address to log into Passport
