If you are a Google Workspace administrator, you may have noticed some OAuth apps that your employees use to access their Google accounts. These apps may have names like “Universe”, or “dn-prd-oauth”, and you may wonder what they do and how they use your data.
Fortunately, there is a simple way to find out more about these apps and their developers. Here are the steps:
- Go to Security > API Controls > App Access Control in your Google Admin console.
- You will see a list of OAuth apps that have been granted access to your domain’s data. Click on the app that you want to investigate.
- Look for the Support email field. This is the email address that you can contact if you have any questions or concerns about the app. For example, if you click on “Universe“, you will see that the support email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
By following these steps, you can gain more insight into the OAuth apps that your employees use and how they handle your data. You can also revoke access to any app that you don’t trust or need.
We hope this tip was helpful to you.
