How do I avoid errors when signing up for Securly with G Suite credentials?

Signing up for Securly’s web filtering product, Aware, or Classroom by Securly with your G Suite credentials is quick and easy. However, sometimes you may encounter some errors while signing up primarily due to permission restrictions.

Some G Suite related errors you may encounter are:

  1. The domain is already registered.
  2. Must be a super admin.
  3. Account primary domain must belong to a super - admin.
  4. Must be a valid subdomain.  
  5. Google API access needs to be enabled.

To avoid facing such errors:

  1. Ensure that the domain you use during sign up has not been previously used to sign up for Securly’s web filtering product. You can only sign up once with a particular domain. When faced with this error, you can navigate to and click ‘Login’ to log in to your Securly account directly.
  2. Ensure that you are assigned a Super Admin role, or that the credentials you use to sign up belong to your G Suite Super Admin. (Learn more about Super Admin here.)
  3. Ensure that the subdomain you enter is a valid subdomain of your primary domain. For example, if your primary domain is ‘’, a valid subdomain would be ‘’. However, ‘’ would be an invalid subdomain.
  4. Ensure that you have enabled the "Enable API Access" field in your G Suite Admin Console. To check if this field is enabled, log in to your G Suite Admin Console and navigate to Security > API Reference. If this checkbox is not selected, you will not be able to sign up for Securly.
