    There ARE apps that will use your already-provided Google account info to log in though, the AndroidCentral app is one of those.

    Yes, and of course one or two Google apps themselves may require that info.
    I wonder whether the OP has encountered one of those phishing-type pop-ups that present you with a fake Google (also Apple) sign-in page, asking you to enter your account name and password. Ugh.

    Also, I have seen some apps that when you're prompted to create an account the order can be a bit misleading. First they ask for your username, then your Google account (or FB, LinkedIn, etc) and then the password, without clearly saying that this is the password for the new account you're creating and not the Google one. Maybe the OP got confused with this.
