    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting us!

    Please describe your problem in more detail and provide a link to the page where the problem occurs.

    Your Google login uses the Google+ API which has been shut down. I wondered if you’d be updating to use a different Google API. I’ve already switched to a different plugin.

    Hi,

    Our plugin uses Google OAuth 2.0, it is not an API. OAuth 2.0 is the foundation authentication service for Google Cloud Platform, G Suite and many other services. OAuth 2.0 is token based, and these tokens can be used on a variety of services, both Google based and a third party. So the end of life for Google+ will not affect OAuth 2.0.

    Please read more here: https://developers.google.com/+/api-shutdown.
