Q:How to upgrade Google ClientLogin to OAuth 2.0

Currently, you are using Google ClientLogin method to access your Google Adwords account with PPC BidMax, it means that you need to enter your Google Adwords username and password in PPC BidMax under the account setting window.

Google ClientLogin method is expected to sunset after June 2014. Now, you need to download the last version of PPC BidMax to upgrade to the new oAuth 2.0.

OAuth 2.0 is an open standard that allows users to grant permissions to third-party applications(such as PPC BidMax), so that the application can interact with web services on the userís behalf. It enables your PPC BidMax application to access a userís AdWords account without having to handle or store the userís username or password.
