Google log in now blocked

Recommended Posts

I accidentally logged out of my Google account whilst adding another, and I can now no longer log back in. Including no access to Gmail.

After entering my username and password, it initially progresses but then errors out:

Try using a different browser. If you’re already using a supported browser, you can refresh your screen and try again to sign in.

I guess Maxthon's (v5.3.8.2100) WebKit core is now just far too old.

I've tried updating the user agent to what is reported in the very latest Chrome (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/80.0.3987.149 Safari/537.36), but there's no change.

Can anyone find a way around this?

If not - it's the end of Maxthon for me, sadly. 😞 I'll end up moving to Chrome and likely just get used to that and not return.

Hi there, this issue has been fixed. 

Steps:

1. Restart the browser, open the Google account login page, wait for a minute.

2. Restart the browser again, open the Google account login page, wait for a minute again.

3. Restart the browser and try to log in again.

If you still experience the issue please try to restore the browser settings to default then restart the browser.

Thanks BugSir. I managed to 'trick' Google by logging in via YouTube, but will definitely give this a go if it happens again.
