If you get a warning/error message that says "Invalid Authentication Request" and/or "Missing Username Parameter", please make sure that BackupBuddy is licensed on the site here:

wp-admin (dashboard) -> Settings -> iThemes Licensing ->
https://help.ithemes.com/hc/en-us/articles/210449498-Licensing-

As BackupBuddy needs to be licensed in order to use the Google Drive (v2) remote destination.

 

Allow BackupBuddy access to Google Drive by clicking, "Allow":
