About your Google Account PIN
Using a PIN helps to secure your G Suite account and ensures that any changes are only made by authorized administrators within the organization.
The Google Account PIN works on any device. If someone used your device while you’re signed in, they can’t use the Google Admin app or access any of your G Suite administrative information unless they know the Google Account PIN.
The PIN applies to other Google services also, such as approving Google Play purchases.
The PIN is not:
- The Google account password you use to log in to your G Suite account.
The PIN or password you use to unlock your mobile device. To make it easy to remember, you might want to use the same PIN for your mobile device and log in to your Google Account.
