Can I use a Chromebook or Chromebox with my ONID login?

Yes you can login to your ONID Gmail account via your Chrome book please follow these steps. 

  1. If you're signed in to your Chromebook, sign out.
  2. On the bottom, click Add person.
    1. If you are on a Campus owned Chromebook, skip this step.
  3. Enter the Google Account email address and password, then click Next.
  4. Follow the steps that appear.

Once logged in you will see the “Shelf” or “taskbar” along the bottom of the screen. Because all information is stored via the “cloud” any changes made to account settings, preferences or themes will be automatically transferred to where ever the Google account is used.  

You may not want to use your ONID account because once you have graduated or left the university there is a period of inactivity and then your ONID account including the Google associated account will be deleted.
