Enforcing Google Authentication Across Your Team

As a team owner, you can make it mandatory for your team to log in using their official Google account. Enforcing authentication via Google offers the following advantages:

  • Ensures that no outsider is added to a team.

  • Allows you to leverage the OAuth flow, whereby only users authenticated via Google are included into the Hevo team.

  • Eliminates the need to maintain a separate password for the Hevo app.

  • Blocks any unauthorized access attempts by a user once their Google work account is disabled.

Once Google authentication is enabled, if a team member logs in using the email-password combination, Hevo displays an error.

Non-Google Login error

If you disable the Google authentication feature in future, your team members can log in using both, their earlier email-password combination or their Google account. However, the email ID must be registered with Hevo. Else, the following error is displayed:

Unregistered email error
