You’re thinking about getting Passwd but you want to learn more about the installation first? It’s straightforward and undemanding. You definitely don’t need an IT person to do this. In this text, you’ll learn how to install Passwd to your Google Workspace (formerly G Suite). All it takes are three and a half simple steps. We also include basic information about Google services.
There are two things you must have in order to use Passwd: Google Workspace and Google Cloud Platform. Now let’s look at the process.
1 Provide Google Workspace Admin E-mail
Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) is the Google service you use every day when writing emails, editing documents, or sharing files. Put simply, Workspace is the paid version of Gmail for companies. If you have an email address with your domain (it reads something like firstname.lastname@example.org), it’s Google Workspace (formerly G Suite). Regular free Gmail accounts do not have an administrator and Passwd does not work with them.
We’ll need to know your Google Workspace Administrator Email, since Passwd uses the address as your impersonation email. You can visit Google’s Who is my administrator page to find out who your admin is.
2 Have Passwd installed
Google Cloud Platform (GCP) provides technological tools: servers, storages, databases, and analytical tools. GCP is required because it is the key part of Passwd architecture. If you use G Suite, you can also have Google Cloud Platform.
Now get ready to do some setup. In a web GCP console, you’ll create a new project for Passwd. You’ll invite our installation admin. Our installation admin will install Passwd for you. After they’ve finished, you’ll simply revoke the access. From that point on, Passwd is completely under your control.
3 Connect Google Workspace with Passwd
You’ll connect Passwd with Workspace by adding one item in Workspace web admin interface. This enables Passwd to use your Google Workspace Groups.
4 That’s it!
You’re ready to store your passwords safely! But since we hold security paramount, we recommend that as the last step you once again check that our access was revoked and our installation admin is no longer in your project.
