We are pleased to collaborate with you again to improve your application security so that you can seamlessly integrate with the Google ecosystem.

Ready to start your annual security reassessment? 

Google has provided new mandates for annual 2020 re-certifications. The new deadlines for expiring Google Testing Letters (LOA) are:

  • for LOA issued between January 1st and June 30th, 2019, new deadline: September 30, 2020
  • for LOA issued between July 1st and December 30th, 2019, new deadline: March 30th, 2021
To submit for verification, follow the steps below:
  1. Go to the Google Cloud Console OAuth consent screen page.

  2. Click the Project selector drop-down at the top of the page.


  3. "Select a project" from the dialog box. If you can't find your project, and you know your project ID, you can construct a URL in your browser using this format[PROJECT_ID] . Replace [PROJECT_ID] with the project ID you want to use.

  4. In the Verification required window that appears, enter a contact email address and the appropriate justifications, and then click Submit to start the verification process. After you submit your app, the Trust & Safety team will follow up by email with any additional information they need or steps you must complete.

  5. Contact your Bishop Fox team quickly to discuss your annual re-certification. Use the form on the right of this page to get in touch.
How To Avoid Crunch Time

Google and our team highly recommend that you start the re-verification process as early as possible. All test letters must be submitted on or before the March 30, 2021 expiration date. If you wait until just before this deadline, you may end up in a scheduling queue.

    • If you did not make a significant change to your application, we advise you to complete your re-verification process and schedule your assessment now, leaving adequate time for remediation.

    • If you have added new features or made major changes to your application, we advise you to complete re-verification process immediately and reach out to us as it may take longer for Google to review your new additions before you can start testing. 
    • All Google Partners must complete the application verification process with Google. If you submitted an app that requests restricted scopes and the app accesses Google user data from or through a server, one of the additional requirements is to have your app undergo an independent, third-party security assessment. See Google OAuth Verification Requirements for additional details.
