Why Register Using your Google Account?
ENAP uses OpenID for user registration. This method means that users do not have to create yet another username/password set. It also means ENAP does not have to store any personal information about the user.
How does it work?
When you click on the login link, ENAP sends a request to Google. If you already signed into your Gmail or other Google account before going to ENAP, then the request will happen in the background using the browser cookie that your Google account creates on your computer. If you are not already signed in, you will be asked to enter your username and password for your Google account, but on a Google page, not ENAP’s page. The only information passed to ENAP is your email address, used as our way of identifying you on the ENAP site. Your password is not passed to ENAP. OpenID was developed to work with more than just Google, but we have restricted ENAP’s use to Google accounts.
What if I don’t have a Gmail account?
You don't need one. When you attempt to login to ENAP, the Google page you will be taken to allows you to signup for an account associated with your existing, non Google email address. They simply send you a confirmation email.
Can’t I just use my university email address since it is hosted by Google?
No. University GoogleApps accounts use a seperate domain name, like slu.edu for Saint Louis University, instead of google.com or gmail.com. You can, however, sign up for a Google account associated with your University email account. The process is easy and quick.
