But that doesn't answer the more important question. If you are using your Google Account as the sign-in for things like LuminPDF, then what? Do you need to change your main Google Account Password?

Hi jesse.ulrich, when you use your Google Account to log in on a site, the site does not receive your Google password, they receive a token which provides access to some of your Google account information, but not your password.
