I'm currently using the "login with Google" option, but I would like to be able to just have my own, unique password. Is it possible to do without creating a new account?

Did you try Settings->manage google ?
you will find Settings at the right-top corner of the page, you will see there your username with an arrow to open the menu :D

Yes, yes I did, but the only available option is to disconnect the account.

The reason for having Google to connect to sign on to CC without using a different password. By using Google, you don't expose a password to CC, but instead get authenticated by Google. We (CC) only see the end authorization, which is sufficient to let you access your account.

If you would like to use a separate/unique password, you can disconnect your Google account as suggested above. After that, you should be able to set a password for your account. (We've never had a request like this, so I'm not sure of the steps.) If you get stuck, send me email at support@codecall.net and I can setup a manual password for you.

That's great, thanks. It's mostly just my OCD's fault for wanting to have a separate password... I know that using Google everywhere is probably safer and better for everyone.

Yes, SSO is safer to some entent. If you have a solid Google password, then going through the SSO login is probably safer than having an easy to remember CC password.
