Google Client ID and Client Secret

Google Client ID is a unique identifier assigned to an application or website that uses Google services such as Google Sign-In or Google APIs. It is a string of characters that is generated by Google when you create a new project on the Google Developer Console.

The primary use of a Google Client ID is to enable users to authenticate themselves and grant permission to access Google services via your application or website.

When a user logs in with Google Sign-In, your application sends the Google Client ID to Google's servers, which validates the user's credentials and returns an access token that your application can use to access the user's Google services.

The Google Client ID also provides a way for Google to track the usage of its APIs and services, and to monitor and control access to those services.

By requiring applications to register for a Client ID, Google can ensure that only authorized applications are accessing its services, and that usage is properly monitored and billed if necessary.

Google Client ID plays a crucial role in enabling developers to integrate Google services into their applications and websites while ensuring the security and proper usage of those services.
