# Is $g$ mod $p$ a generator for the multiplicative group mod $p^2$?

How would one go about proving/disproving whether $g$, a multiplicative generator mod $p$, is also a multiplicative generator mod $p^2$?

I assume $p$ is an odd prime.
It suffices to check if $g^{p-1}$ is $1$ mod $p^2$ or not. If it is, then it is not a generator. (Clear as its order is $p-1$ and not the needed $(p-1)p$.)
If it is something else, then it is. This is because its order mod $p^2$ must be a multiple of the order mod $p$, which is $p-1$ and a divisor of $p(p-1)$. So if it is greater than $(p-1)$, it can only be $p(p-1)$.
Both cases can happen. One can show though that at least on of $g$ and $g+p$ will be a generator mod $p^2$.
