Simpler sign-in with Google
At the moment Google sign-in is there and works, but can be improved for a smoother dashboard experience. There are 2 things which can be improved upon:
- the session doesn't last after the CloudWays browser tab is closed. If CloudWays got a oauth token from Google platform, it should keep the session until the token is revoked or manual log out
- using too many permissions. At sign-in time only the profile_basic and profile_email should be requested, simplifying the login process. When someone tries to use Google Sign-In, they first choose the account, then approve the app (CloudWays), then give access for the extra permissions. Age, language & Google+ shouldn't be there at that moment https://drive.google.com/file/d/1RxlWcogpkuLQmI4ERVl0dYOeQxnSgdZD/view?usp=sharing
Thank you for contributing your valuable suggestions.
We already have started working on minimizing the scope of Google service permissions.
Your other feedback about sessions has been added to our Product Improvement Ideas list, and we will incorporate it in upcoming quarters.
