Step 4: Give a name to your Web App. We recommend using your actual App name. Click on Register.
Step 5: In this step the Firebase SDK with the relevant information will be displayed. Grab the measurementID from here. This is your app's Firebase Measurement ID. Save this ID. We will use this in the later steps. Now click on Continue to Console.
Step 6: From the Console, go to your Project Settings.
Step 7: In Project Settings, under the Integration tab, select Google Analytics.
Step 8 - a: If you already have a default GA account linked to your Firebase account, you will see the below screen.
Step 8 - b: If you do not have a GA account linked to your Firebase account, you will be asked to create a new GA account or to link a default GA account to your Firebase account. Please choose one option to link a GA account to your Firebase account.

Step 11: Click on the Web app that is displayed in this page. (This the same web app your registered on Firebase)
Step 12: Here you will find your app's GA Measurement ID. Save this ID. We will use this in the later steps.
Step 13: Scroll down on the current page and click on Measurement Protocol API Secret.
Step 14: Click on Create to create a new API Secret key. Enter a name for the key and click on Create again.
Step 15: Cope the Secret Value once the secret is created. This is your GA4 API key. Save this Key. We will use this in the later steps.
Step 16: Write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide us with your GA4 Measurement ID, Firebase Measurement ID, and GA4 Secret Key. We will add these to your app code. App updates will be required to enable this feature in your app.
