3.3 Generate Debug Certificate

You need to generate 2​ signing certificates​ for the google sign-in feature. Debug certificate is required for testing purposes. If you want to test google signing during development, then you should follow the steps. Otherwise, you can ignore it.
  • To generate a debug certificate, run this command on your terminal from your app
    root directory.
keytool -list -v \
-alias androiddebugkey -keystore ~/.android/debug.keystore
keytool -list -v \
-alias androiddebugkey -keystore %USERPROFILE%\.android\debug.keystore
If this command doesn’t work, then go to this link and copy the debug command from there according to your os.
