Android maps v2 generate SH-1 key (MAC OS)

There are two keys that you can do with this, one the debug and the second for the release key. Basically is the same thing just that the debug key is already made for us and it is used when you run the app from your IDE ..

So to generate the SH-1 key you can do the following:

Open terminal and write down the following commands:


keytool -list -v -keystore /Users/your_mac_user_name/.android/debug.keystore -alias androiddebugkey

password: android


keytool -list -v -keystore path_to_your_key -alias key_alias

password: your_key_password


The output for the debug key would be something like this:
