January 22, 2014:  Google announced that it would be changing the login screen for domains last November.  Over the next four weeks, starting on January 22nd, domains will be using a new login method.  The goal is to have a consistent look as users login to any of the Google Apps services. Example:  The sign-in page for Calendar or Drive will look the same as the sign-in page for Gmail or any other Google Apps service. Google says this will improve security and make it easier for users to switch between accounts.
  1. The Google Apps login page can no longer be personalized with colors and custom logos.
  2. Domains will have the same look across all Google login pages
  3. Users will have to login with their full email addresses
  4. For SSO domains with a network mask, users will be presented with the new Google sign-in page when the login from outside the SSO network mask.
  5. This change does not affect domains without a network mask.
