Sign in with GitHub or Google

When navigating to Sign into a different account, you may choose to sign in with GitHub or Google:

Should you choose GitHub, this will open your default browser and authenticate your account with GitHub. If you are already signed into GitHub on your browser, GitKraken Client will sign you in using that GitHub account.

If you choose Google, GitKraken Client will open a new browser window. Select the Google account you wish to connect, and then GitKraken Client will finish the authentication.

If however GitKraken Client does not automatically log you in after signing in with Google, you may manually enter the Oauth token provided on the success page that appears after you sign into Google, to complete the authentication.

Additionally if your Google account has a GitKraken account associated, the app will automatically link the accounts together.
