Last night, I got a message from google, “there was a suspicious login activity happened to my account”. So they asked either this was me or someone else.
Well, that wasn’t me, so I clicked on not me option, and they redirected me on password reset window.
So I changed my password. Now I can’t sign in my gmail account on android phone? It keeps asking for the password.
Can somebody tell me, how do you fix the problem?January 2, 2020 at 12:13 pm #6498Judy C. BattisteParticipant
