To help protect your account, Google doesn’t let you sign in from some browsers. Google might stop sign-ins from browsers that:
- Have unsecure or unsupported extensions added
- Are being controlled through software automation rather than a human
- Are embedded in a different application
Step 1. Use a supported browser
Fix problems when you sign in
Turn off extensions in Chrome
Tip: If you use a different browser, check its support page for how to turn off extensions.
Update your browser
Tip: If you use a different browser, visit its support page to learn how to update it.
Check your privacy settings
If you use a browser other than Chrome and have set your browser’s privacy settings to “High” or “Strict,” you may need to add www.google.com to your browser’s list of allowed sites.
Visit your browser’s support page for how to check your privacy settings.
Check for security programs
If you use a firewall, proxy, or anti-virus program, temporarily turn off the program. Then try to sign in to your Google Account.
If that fixes the problem, the security program might have stopped you from using your Google Account. To use their program with Google access, contact the program's support page.
If you use a work computer
Information for app developers
If you implemented "Sign in with Google" with the Chromium Embedded Framework, you’ll need to migrate to a more secure alternative:
- Switch to use browser-based OAuth.
- Migrate your desktop app to a Progressive Web App.
