Google adds bolder warnings to lessen risk of unverified apps
19 July, 2017, 03:07 | Author: Pamela Mathis
The Web giant is rolling out a new "unverified app" warning screen, which will appear when you encounter web apps that have not yet been confirmed to be authentic by the company. This change, like other improvements the company has made in recent months, is likely a continued response to the mass phishing attack that affected roughly 1 million people in May.
Google is beefing up security following the major Docs phishing scam in May. Clicking the purported Google Docs button in the message took users to an actual Google page, which asked them to grant access to an app masquerading as Google Docs. If you're a developer, make sure the appropriate accounts are granted either the Project Owner or Billing Account Admin IAM role in the Google Cloud Console and that the OAuth Consent Screen configuration is correct in API Manager.
The new pop-up will adorn all the new web apps that connect to Google user accounts to prevent a malicious app from appearing as Google-verified. Now it's announcing several features created to make it easier to tell if a given app has been verified.
Apps that aren't verified by Google and are asking you to enter your Google credentials will now be presented with a warning screen that Google is calling as "unverified app screen". Apps Scripts allow developers to extend Google Sheets, Docs and Forms with additional functionality, and users there will also see a similar "unverified app" screen soon. "Only proceed if you know and trust the developer...unverified apps may post a threat to your personal data". That would be silly.
The company also tightened the screws on policies and enforcement on OAuth applications that use the Google platform. Over the next few months, though, Google will extend this feature to existing apps, too.
Google also said it will add those warnings to its Apps Scripts, which let Google use custom macros and add-ons for its productivity apps, like Google Docs.
We're committed to fostering a healthy ecosystem for both users and developers.
"These new notices will inform users automatically if they may be at risk, enabling them to make informed decisions to keep their information safe, and will make it easier to test and develop apps for developers", said Google.
The tech giant said Tuesday it's rolling out more security protections to lessen the risk of new apps that are still pending verification.
