  3. After selecting the Google option, a new window or tab will pop up, directing you to a Google authentication page.
  4. Select your Google Account. If you're already logged into your Google account in the browser, you'll see your account listed.

Review these permissions and decide whether you're comfortable granting them. If you agree, click the "Allow" or "Accept" button.
  6. Complete the Registration on OpenAI. Once you've authenticated with Google, you'll be redirected back to the OpenAI platform. Here, they might ask for additional information, like a username, ask for a code sent to your mobile via text message or preferences for communication.
  7. You are done! Once all previous steps are completed, you should have a registered OpenAI account linked to your Google ID.
