Google has changed its authentication policy, not allowing username/password credentials anymore.

The only authentication allowed now is OAuth2 which involves the exchange of authentication tokens.

The current Google Analytics sensor uses the username/password authentication and therefore stopped working. Paessler is working on a OAuth2 version which will be available in the stable version within a few months.

If you need the Google Analytics sensor back on line before that, you can download GAnalyticsXML from http://prtgtoolsfamily.com/downloads/sensorsxml.

Please follow the steps in the manual to register the sensor with your Google Analytics account.

Update: The new Google Analytics sensors with OAuth2 support is available out of the box since PRTG version 15.3.19.
