Sign In with Google not working in Safari

Problem:

When using Safari and attempting to Sign In to Drive Connect with Google, the OAuth window closes but Drive Connect still does not recognize that you have signed in.

Solution:

Safari prevents Google Sign In when ‘Prevent cross-site tracking’ is enabled.  To allow Sign In with Google, disable ‘Prevent cross-site tracking’ in Safari.


Disabling ‘Prevent cross-site tracking’ in Safari

  1. In the Safari app on your Mac, click Safari and select Preferences
  2. Click Privacy
  3. Uncheck ‘Prevent cross-site tracking
