Play Integrity Error Getting Token from Google: How to Fix

In this guide, we will show you the steps to fix the “Error Getting Token from Google” issue in the Play Integrity app. If your device is rooted and/or you are using a custom ROM, then might not be able to use the banking and payment app of your choice until and unless you pass the SafetyNet Test. Well, this is what used to be the case. Google has now set the deadline for all apps to move from SafetyNet over to Play Integrity by January 2025.

However, most apps have already started doing this migration. So all those apps that now use the Play Integrity API instead of the SafetyNet will no longer work on your device even if it passes the SafetyNet Test. So to round it all off, your device should pass the MEETS_DEVICE_INTEGRITY and MEETS_BASIC_INTEGRITY tests which are a part of Play Integrity, and only then will you be able to use banking apps on your rooted device or in a Custom ROM.

The calling app is making too many requests to the API and hence is throttled. This shouldn’t happen. If it does please open an issue on GitHub”.

The reason why you are getting this error is due to the fact that many users are performing this check at the same time and it’s resulting in server overload. So, one obvious fix for this issue is to try out a different third-party app that will get this job done [such as the TB Checker]. But it might happen that over the due course of time, the same issue might appear with that app as well. So let’s completely ditch these apps and use whatever we have at our disposal.

Some of you might not be aware but the Google Play Store does have a hidden option that allows you to check the Play Integrity Test results on your device. So let’s put it to the test and check out the results. Follow along.
