Enable or disable Google+ APIs

Google+ works with an increasing number of apps. These apps can use public Google+ APIs or the Google+ Domains API, which allows apps to perform actions such as reading posts, writing restricted posts, or managing circles. For example, you might use these apps in your domain to track and monitor shared content, automatically post company-wide announcements, or manage circle membership for domain users.

You can also control whether apps can make use of Google+ APIs. Your selection affects both third-party apps and those you create in-house. 

If you disable Google+ APIs, users can still authenticate apps to act on their behalf, but all authenticated calls made to Google+ APIs will fail. The toggle does not affect unauthenticated calls, which can only access public content.

To enable or disable Google+ APIs:

  1. Sign in to the Google Admin console
     
  2. Click Apps > Additional Google Services > Google+ > Advanced settings.
  3. In the Organizations section, select the organization for which you want to enable or disable Google+ apps.

    If you don't see an Organizations section, you probably have only one organization in your domain and can therefore skip this step.

    Select the top-level organization to enforce the same settings for your entire organization. You can also specify different settings for each organizational unit. If you have a lot of organizations, click the + button to expand your options.

  4. Check or uncheck Allow apps to access Google+ APIs.
     
  5. Click Save changes.
