I have just received this message from GoogleDevelopers-noreply@google.com about the Google+ API I am using for a Web application:

On March 7, 2019, all Google+ APIs and Google+ Sign-in will be shut down completely. This will be a progressive shutdown, with API calls starting to intermittently fail as early as January 28, 2019, and OAuth requests for Google+ scopes starting to intermittently fail as early as February 15, 2019.

What do I need to do?

Please update your projects listed below by March 7, 2019 and ensure they are no longer using Google+ APIs, or requesting Google+ OAuth scopes. The data below shows which Google+ API methods your projects have recently called, as well as Google+ OAuth scopes it has requested.

It is not clear what is the replacement for this. The goal is to still allow users to authenticate in my Web application using their Google account.

Question: What shall I consider as replacement for Google+ APIs and OAuth?

    This is off-topic here as this site is about using web applications as end-users.

  • @Rubén - ok, I thought it is about using GooglePlus' Developer Console. However, I have flagged it to be migrated to Webmasters since it seems to be ontopic there (actually I have received this notification related to a Web application I have developed). Thanks.

  • I have flagged my question for it to be moved to Webmasters. Can anyone do this or should I directly write it there?
