Whitelisting Forensic Email Collector in Google Workspace

Google Workspace allows administrators to restrict access to specific Google Workspace services. If a service is restricted, users cannot authorize third-party applications to access that service unless the specific app had already been trusted.

You can add Forensic Email Collector to the trusted apps list as follows:

  1. Visit the Google Admin console of the target organization — https://admin.google.com/
  2. Navigate to Security ➫ API controls
  3. Click on the MANAGE THIRD-PARTY APP ACCESS button
  4. Open the Configure new app menu and choose OAuth App Name or Client ID

  5. In the window that opens, search for FEC's Google API client ID. If you do not know what FEC's client ID is, please get in touch with our support.

    Note: It is also possible to find FEC by searching for Forensic Email Collector. If you choose this option, you should still verify that the OAuth client ID listed on step 7 below matches that of FEC, and that the Forensic Email Collector application is listed as verified by Google.

  6. From the list of found apps, select Forensic Email Collector

  7. On the next screen, check the OAuth client ID for FEC—the same value as you used in step 5 above.
  8. On the next screen, select Trusted: Can access all Google services and click the CONFIGURE button.
  9. End-users can now use FEC Remote Authenticator to authenticate.
  10. After the acquisition is complete, revisit the App Access Control page by clicking the MANAGE THIRD-PARTY APP ACCESS button and remove Forensic Email Collector from the list of trusted apps.
