Our security technology helps detect suspicious events to better protect your Google Account. With Cross-Account Protection, we can share security notifications about suspicious events with apps and services you’ve connected to your Google Account. That way, third-party apps and services can use Google’s suspicious event detection to help keep you safer online.
How Cross-Account Protection works
What apps & services get security notifications from Google
To get security notifications from Google, a third-party app or service must:
Security notifications are sent when a sensitive event happens on your Google Account. Examples of sensitive events can include your:
- Account being hacked
- Account being suspended or disabled
- Account being signed out from your devices or browsers
Security notifications can be used by Google and participating apps and services to do things like:
- Better identify suspicious activity on your account
- Sign you out of the participating app or service to help secure your account
Manage Cross-Account Protection
- Go to your Connections to third-party apps and services page.
- You may need to sign in.
- To find out if it participates in Cross-Account protection, select an app or service.
- If the app or service has the Cross-Account Protection badge , it participates in Cross-Account Protection.
If you no longer want to use a third-party app or service that's participating in Cross-Account Protection, you can remove its access to your account.
Once you remove access from a third-party app or service, the app:
- Gets a final notification that the connection stopped.
- No longer receives security reports for your Google Account.
