Google no longer shows icons for none approved signin apps in security page taken a ton of icons down with it.
If you went in your Google security tab in your account area this morning you probably noticed that a bunch of the icons for the apps connected with your account now have disappeared. If you wondered why this is why from the eyes of the developer of Rototer.com.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, this page used to have more icons displayed on it. Some accounts didn't suffer from this update like mine but other developers apps had their icons removed because these apps with their icons that have now disappeared include Alogia, (An AI search plugin used by developers) Grepper, and others use to display icons, but don't anymore because their consent screens aren't approved. This doesn't apply to all of them, just some of them. here's a screenshot of the page.
If you don't know what I mean by an unapproved consent screen, here's the difference:
Here's how the unapproved consent screen looks
And here's how an approved consent screen without an icon looks:
As you can see, there were unaffected consent screens including mine. The ones that were targeted were the unapproved consent screens with icons that appeared in the "Apps with account access" tab in Google. We were not at all effected since ours is one of the approved consent screens. I hope this cleared things up a bit, now what is an approved consent screen?
Good question, this is a consent screen that was actually verified safe via a Google Developer approval process. The Google Developer approval process is where an app either chooses or is required by Google to be approved. The reason the icons got removed from those apps is if you want to display an icon, Google now requires you to go through the approval process not only for the icon to appear on the consent screen but on the page I showed you as well as all other places unapproved consent icons use to be able to appear. Anyway thanks for tuning in and I'll see you next time.
