    Can you kindly provide more details for G Suite users on how to enable / disable restrictions of unsecure apps (since these apps are not available through the marketplace)?!

    Or at least share the indepth details of setting / defining trusted sources, to enable as admin for G Suite.

    Thank you

      Hi

      Google REvamping the access rights for third app this week and now we have to go in a process to reviex each application. We will apply to review our application in order to remove the top banner.

      We don’t have response time for accepting application from Google so we can’t give you a time frame.

      Regards,
      stéphane
