How authorized access works - Google Workspace Admin Help [gg-a-en]

How authorized access works

Important: OAuth 1.0 2LO was entirely deprecated on October 20, 2016. The easiest way to migrate to the new standard is to use OAuth 2.0 service accounts with domain-wide delegation.

When your users install an app from the Google Workspace Marketplace, a page comes up asking them to agree to the terms of service of the application and to grant the application access to the data for their Google service. When the user grants access, it's recorded through a 3-legged OAuth access token. (For more details about how authorized access works with Google Workspace, see the diagram on how 3-legged OAuth works with G Suite.)

Once a 3-legged OAuth 2.0 token is revoked for an application (for a particular user), then the application cannot access that user's information until the user reinstalls this application and reauthorizes a 3-legged OAuth 2.0 token for that app. The Security page allows you to see all active 3-legged OAuth 2.0 tokens for a given user for a given application. The token listing and revocation is by user by app.

To increase account security for users of your Google service, OAuth 2.0 tokens issued for access to certain products are revoked when a user's password is changed.

Some applications that use the OAuth 2.0 authentication method to access certain products stop accessing data when a user's password is reset. 

What's the difference between 2-legged OAuth and 3-legged OAuth?

Traditionally with Google, 2-legged OAuth is for administrator-managed applications, in that an administrator grants access to an application like Tripit to access data for the Google service for ALL users in their domain. Common data requested for access include: Groups Provisioning, User Provisioning, Calendar, and Contacts.

3-legged OAuth usually refers to user-managed applications, where a user in a domain can download individual apps from the G Suite Marketplace and install them with their managed Google account. However, the security section lets you see which 3rd-party applications your users have granted access to their Google data, and gives you the ability to revoke 3-legged OAuth 2.0 tokens.

For more information, go to the diagrams on 2-legged OAuth and 3-legged OAuth (English only).

Use Screen Time on your Mac - Apple Support

Use Screen Time on your Mac

With Screen Time, you can monitor usage, schedule downtime, and set limits across all your devices.

MacBook Pro with Screen Time System Preferences window open

Use Screen Time to see how much time you and your kids spend on apps, websites, and more. Then make informed decisions about how you use your devices, and set limits if you'd like to.


Turn on Screen Time

Follow these steps in macOS Catalina or later:

  1. Choose Apple menu  > System Preferences, then click Screen Time. 
  2. Click Options in the lower-left corner.
  3. Click Turn On.
  4. To be able to see usage information for every other device signed in to iCloud with your Apple ID, select "Share across devices" on each Mac. And on each iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, go to Settings > Screen Time and turn on the same setting.

If you're using Family Sharing to manage a child account, you can turn on Screen Time directly from each of your child's devices. Or follow these steps to do it from your Mac:*

  1. Choose Apple menu  > System Preferences, then click Family Sharing.
  2. Click Screen Time in the sidebar, then select your child's name from the list on the right.
  3. Click the Open Screen Time button to return to Screen Time preferences.
  4. Choose your child's name from the menu in the upper-left corner.
  5. Click Options in the lower-left corner.
  6. Click Turn On.

Before deciding whether to select "Use a Screen Time Passcode," learn about Screen Time passcodes.


Use a Screen Time passcode

Set a passcode so that only you can change Screen Time settings and allow more time when app limits expire. If you're a parent, use this feature to set up enforceable content, communication, and privacy limits for your child.

If you're using Family Sharing to manage a child account, follow these steps:*

  1. Choose Apple menu  > System Preferences, then click Screen Time.
  2. Choose your child's name from the menu in the upper-left corner.
  3. Click Options in the lower-left corner.
  4. Select "Use Screen Time Passcode," then enter a passcode when prompted.
  5. If you're using the latest macOS, you're offered the option to enter your Apple ID to enable Screen Time passcode recovery, in case you forget your Screen Time passcode.

If you're not using Family Sharing to manage a child account, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure that you're on the same Mac used by the child, and are logged in to the standard account used by the child. If you're not sure what to do, just continue with the steps below: Screen Time will help you.
  2. Choose Apple menu  > System Preferences, then click Screen Time.
  3. Set up Downtime, App Limits, Communication Limits, and Content & Privacy with all of the limits that you want for your child.
  4. Click Options in the lower-left corner.
  5. Select "Use Screen Time Passcode," then enter a passcode when prompted.
  6. If you're using the latest macOS, iOS, or iPadOS, you're offered the option to enter your Apple ID to enable Screen Time passcode recovery, in case you forget your Screen Time passcode.

If you're setting a passcode while logged in to your administrator account, an alert explains that you should do this from a standard account. If you haven't set up a standard account for your child, you can either do that and log into their account, or choose from these options:

  • Allow this user to administer this computer. If you choose this option, the passcode affects the current user, even though they're also an administrator of this Mac. This isn't recommended, because administrators have macOS privileges that could allow them to work around passcode restrictions.
  • Don't allow this user to administer this computer. If you choose this option, you're prompted to enter your account password in order to modify your configuration. You're then guided through the steps to create a new administrator account—for use by the parent. The administrator account you're currently logged in to is converted to a standard account—for use by the child.

Learn what to do if you forgot your Screen Time passcode.

How to disable SMB 1 or NetBIOS in macOS - Apple Support

How to disable SMB 1 or NetBIOS in macOS

Learn how to disable SMB 1 or NetBIOS to prevent failover.

This article is intended for enterprise and education system administrators.

SMB 1 and NetBIOS are enabled by default in macOS to improve compatibility with third-party products. macOS will attempt to use the later versions of SMB, as well as DNS and port 445, with failover to port 139 and SMB 1 as needed. You can disable SMB 1 or NetBIOS to prevent this failover.

To disable SMB 1, add the following line to the /etc/nsmb.conf file:

  protocol_vers_map=6  

To disable NetBIOS, add the following line to the /etc/nsmb.conf file:

  port445=no_netbios  

The /etc/nsmb.conf file doesn't exist by default. To create one and apply both of the above changes, use the following Terminal commands:

  echo "[default]" | sudo tee -a /etc/nsmb.conf  echo "protocol_vers_map=6" | sudo tee -a /etc/nsmb.conf  echo "port445=no_netbios" | sudo tee -a /etc/nsmb.conf  

To revert the above changes, you can delete the /etc/nsmb.conf file safely.

I want to monetize my videos, but I was disapproved for being under 18 - AdSense Help [gg-adsense-en]

AdMob, YouTube, and Blogger

I want to monetize my videos, but I was disapproved for being under 18

The minimum age requirement to participate in AdSense is 18 years. If you have submitted an AdSense application through YouTube and were disapproved by our system for being an underage publisher, your YouTube account will still be linked to this disapproved AdSense application. You should follow the instructions in the disapproval e-mail you received to verify your age (if you are over 18) and resubmit the AdSense application.

In case you are under 18 years old, the only way to start monetizing your videos is to link the YouTube account to an approved AdSense account (of a parent or guardian who is over 18).

How to earn money on YouTube

To earn money on YouTube, you'll need to apply for and be accepted into the YouTube Partner Program (YPP). Learn more.

A few notes

  • We won't tell you what you can create on YouTube, but we do have a responsibility to do right by our viewers, creators and advertisers. If you're in the YouTube Partner Program, you can earn money through YouTube. Because of that, we hold you to a higher standard.
  • To make sure we're rewarding good creators, we review your channel before you're accepted in the YouTube Partner Program. We also constantly review channels to make sure you're meeting all our policies and guidelines.

Ways to make money in the YouTube Partner Program

Each feature has its own set of eligibility requirements on top of subscriber and view count requirements. If our reviewers believe that your channel or video is not eligible, specific features may not be available. These extra thresholds exist for two main reasons. The most important one is that we have to meet legal requirements in every area where the feature is available. Then, because we want to reward good creators, we need to make sure we have enough context on your channel. Generally, this context means we need more content to look at.

Keep in mind that we constantly review channels to make sure your content is in line with our policies.

Minimum eligibility requirements to turn on monetization features

Overview for users - Opinion Rewards Help [gg-opinionrewards-en]

Overview for users

What is Google Surveys?

Google Surveys is a market-research tool that lets market researchers easily create online surveys in order to make more informed business decisions. Users complete survey questions within the Google Opinion Rewards App or via our network of online publishers to earn rewards. Google automatically analyzes responses, providing the data back to market researchers through a simple online interface.

Your opinion for rewards

When you take a survey using Google Opinion Rewards, your answer is aggregated and shared with the market researcher who wrote the survey questions. Your responses to surveys may also be temporarily connected to your Google Account. In exchange, we provide you, the user, credits to use in the Google Play store (if you're using the Android app) or cash in your PayPal account (if you're using the iOS app).

Google Opinion Rewards tracks your reward history separately for each platform, and does not provide a cumulative total across platforms. Credits or cash you earn on one platform are never transferred to the other platform, but always remain available to you on the original platform.

We encourage all users to answer honestly. Google Play credits and PayPal cash payments are of varying amounts and are not linked to answering a certain question in a specific way. We monitor for spammy user behavior to ensure that our market researchers are receiving the best and most accurate data.

For more information regarding the privacy of your survey responses, see the Google Privacy Policy.

Reporting an abuse of our services

If you see content that you believe violates our program policies or Google's Terms of Service, please help us by contacting the Surveys team.

When filling out the form, please provide detailed information about the survey question. We will only remove the question if it violates our program policies. In an effort to maintain privacy, we are not able to let you know the outcome of a review of any reported violations. Rest assured, we'll take the appropriate action if necessary.

About Realtime Transit

Realtime Transit provides live transit information and updates to Google Maps and Google Maps for mobile users. These updates include the latest departure and arrival times, as well as service alerts.

To provide this information, transit agencies build a data feed of their updates and share it with Google. Complementing the widely used GTFS format, the Realtime feed format contains data encapsulated in Google's open Protocol Buffer data interchange format. These Realtime feeds are periodically fetched by Google or programmatically pushed by the agency when something changes. Feed updates are immediately processed as Realtime Transit Updates information so that users get timely transit information.

Benefits

Adding a Realtime Transit feed to complement your existing static feed enhances users' experiences with your transit services. For example, riders get:

  • Up-to-date arrival and departure time info: Allows users to plan their trips even more efficiently.

  • Advance notification of service delays: Helps to reduce inconvenience to transit users.

  • Smoother transit experiences: Helps to encourage repeat users, improving potential for increased ridership.

Get started

In order to publish a Realtime Transit feed, you need to have a working GTFS static transit information feed in Google Maps (either live or in preview).

Once you have your static feed and server space for your realtime data, it's a simple process to publish your realtime transit feed:

  1. Sign up

  2. Create a GTFS Realtime feed

  3. Choose how you will submit your data

  4. Publish your data

  5. Test your data

  6. Prepare for launch

Edit ads or keywords in bulk - Search Ads 360 Help [gg-searchads-en]

Bulk and scheduled edits

Edit ads or keywords in bulk

In the Search Ads 360 UI, you can update the settings of multiple ads or keywords at once. You'll first need to filter the table so it contains only the ads or keywords you want to update. You can also schedule bulk edits.

Bulk updates do not change inherited settings. For example, if a keyword inherits Max CPC from the ad group, the Change bid edit will ignore the keyword. Change bid only changes Max CPC for keywords that specify their own Max CPC. Likewise, bulk edits Rules that match keyword landing page URLs or that update keyword landing page URLs will skip keywords that don't specify landing page URLs.

In some engines, editing ad copy or URLs causes the engine to remove the old ad and create a new one. The new ad does not retain the performance history of the original ad, but you can still report on the old, removed ad.

In all engines, editing keyword text or match type causes the engine to remove the old keyword and create a new one.

Learn more about editing ads or keywords.

Steps to update ads or keywords in bulk

Once you start a bulk edit for a large group of items, Search Ads 360 may need some time to apply the edits. In the meantime, Search Ads 360 does not start applying other bulk edits that you might start in the engine account, or bulk edits that were scheduled to start, until the current edit is finished. That is, there can only be one active bulk edit per engine account at a time.

  1. Navigate to an engine account and click the Ads or Keywords tab.

    Steps for navigating to an engine account
    1. In the left navigation panel, click All accounts.
      What if the left navigation pane isn't visible?

    2. Click the navigation bar to display navigation options.

    3. In the "Agency" list, click on the agency that contains the advertiser. You can search for an agency by name or scroll through the list.

    4. In the "Advertiser" list, click on the advertiser that contains the engine account.

    5. In the "Account" list, click on the engine account.

    6. Click Apply or press the Enter key.

    Search Ads 360 displays the engine account page.

  2. You can set up a filter to refine your bulk edit selection:
    • Click Filter in the toolbar above the performance summary graph.
    • Set up a filter so the table contains only the ads or keywords you want to update.
  3. If you need to further refine your selection, select the check boxes next to the ads or keywords you want to edit.
    If you don't select any check boxes, Search Ads 360 will edit all the ads or keywords across all pages.

  4. In the toolbar above the table, click the Edit button and select the action you want to take.
    The Editing panel appears.
    You may be able to use a formula column to calculate the value of the setting. For example, you can use a formula column that returns a monetary value to calculate the value of a keyword's Max CPC setting.

  5. The Applies to option shows the number of ads or keywords you selected.
    You also have the option to select all ads or keywords across all pages or matching the filter.
  6. Set up the bulk edit.

  7. You can schedule the edit to occur at a specific time or on a recurring basis. Learn more about scheduled edits.
  8. Click Save.
    If you're editing ad settings, Search Ads 360 displays a notice that the engine may remove the ad and create a new one. Note that this notice only applies to engines that do not support editing ad copy or URLs.

    A line above the table displays the progress of the bulk edit. If needed, you can attempt to cancel the edits. It's possible to cancel a bulk edit while objects are being sent to the engine; visit the Bulk operations page to see which edits were fully processed before cancellation. However, if you click Cancel too late in the process, Search Ads 360 will finish all the edits.

  9. You can click the More details link to see the Bulk operations page.
