2 - What you are gaining by interesting your Google account with Localo?
Localo enters a new era by providing even more usability.

This is just the beginning ... This integration allows us not only to refresh your data in Localo - so you always have the most current information, but also to introduce groundbreaking solutions - all from within a single application - such as the ability to schedule posts, automatic response to reviews as well as advanced statistics that will allow you to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of your profile and learn about the effects of optimization in the form of measurable results.
Once you will enter your password and sent a request you will receive a link to reset your password.
3 - Is it safe to do?
Our application is based on world's latest security solutions and is regularly updated. Google will not allow the use of its resources and API for platforms/websites/applications that want to fulfil the highest security standards.
Allowing connection between Localo and your Google Business Profile is equivalent to adding an extra user to be able to manage your account.
The difference is that this extra user is yourself that has the ability to influence/access `GBP from a different access point - Localo app.
By adding a connection You do not share your Google password with Localo team. That is why (sometimes) when you choose to log in via the second option you need to create a new password.
4 - How does that influence your Google profile rankings?
Connecting Localo to your Google business profile does not affect your ranking in any way (positive or negative) - the only things that affect your visibility in search results are your actions and improvements that you do using Localo or directory via Google Bussiness Profile.
