In Authorized Javascript Origins, put your account’s authorization domain, found in the authorization domain section of the Cloudflare Access dashboard. It is likely https://something.cloudflareaccess.com. In the Authorized redirect URIs section, put your authorization domain followed by /cdn-cgi/access/callback. Click create.

This is so easy to fix. Have no fears. It takes just a minute. Ready?

Then in the field for Authorized redirect URIs add the domain Google complains about in the 400 error. It will look something like https://dani.cloudflareaccess.com/cdn-cgi/access/callback.
