[Action Required] Google+ APIs and OAuth requests shutdown


Recommended Posts

Welcome, I did get a message from Google regarding my IPS connection with google login. 

Should I do anything? How to handle it? 


Hello Google+ Developer,

The email below contains your most recent usage of Google+ APIs. Note: It includes Google+ OAuth scope requests, which are also affected by the Google+ shutdown. A prior email sent to active API callers did not include information about OAuth requests. One final reminder email will be sent in February to users who still have active API or OAuth request activity.

What do I need to know?

On March 7, 2019, all Google+ APIs and Google+ Sign-in will be shut down completely. This will be a progressive shutdown, with API calls starting to intermittently fail as early as January 28, 2019, and OAuth requests for Google+ scopes starting to intermittently fail as early as February 15, 2019.

What do I need to do?

Please update your projects listed below by March 7, 2019 and ensure they are no longer using Google+ APIs, or requesting Google+ OAuth scopes. The data below shows which Google+ API methods your projects have recently called, as well as Google+ OAuth scopes it has requested.

Note: If you see calls to people.get, these can be the result of using the Google+ Sign-In feature in your application, which is now fully deprecated and is being shut down. Developers should migrate from the Google+ Sign-In feature to the more comprehensive Google Sign-in authentication system.

Anything else to know?

Google+ integrations for web or mobile apps are also being shut down. Please see this additional notice.

Thanks for being a valued Google+ Developer.

Google decided rather quickly to shut down their Google+ service (they announced in December that the service would be shut down by April), which was used for our Google Login feature. We have updated things on our side to use the Identity service instead for our next release (4.4.0). If Google Login is important for your site, you will need to update to 4.4.0 when it becomes available.
