The special accounts associated with a project are called the Service Accounts.

The service accounts are used for the authorization of Google compute Engine in order that it may perform on behalf of the user and therefore may access non-sensitive data and information.

These accounts usually simplify the authentication method from Google Cloud Engine to the other services through handling the method of authorization for the user.

It is needed to say that service accounts aren't utilized in order to access the information of the user.

There are numerous types of service accounts offered by Google however chiefly, users opt to use 2 sorts of service accounts, these are –

  • Google Cloud Platform Console service accounts
  • Google Compute Engine service accounts

The user doesn’t need to create a service account manually.

It is automatically created by the compute Engine whenever a brand new instance is made.

Google compute Engine additionally specifies the scope of the service account for that specific instance once it's created.
