Gmail won't let me login - very annoying
0
I have a Gmail account which I use rarely. I have no security features set up (no two factor authentication, etc.). This is on purpose. I did not want those features on this particular account.

I just tried to login, using the correct password, and got a message that my device was not recognized, so I had to answer a security question. The security question had to do with my frequent flyer number. I know I did not set up this security question because I do not have a frequent flyer number. I never would have set up such a question.

Anyhow, now it won't let me access my account. I don't understand how I can be denied access to my account when I have the password? 

Can anyone help? Stuff like this makes me not want to use Gmail.

The account recovery form is the only way to regain access to your Google account. More information in this help article.

Do you have any idea why this is happening? It is somewhat alarming to be denied access to my account for no reason?

Thank you

Yeah these idots don't want you using a different browser to sign in either. Trying to sign into an account on opera and google doesn't want to because it isn't recognized. Yet on the troubleshooting it says right there you can use opera.

It's seriously creepy how controlling they are. I changed the password to a different google account that is only used for Youtube(I don't even get emails there) then suddenly I can't sign into my actual google account connected to my life. Magically I've forgotten my password and when I give them another email to send verification code it doesn't work until they've sent the 5th one now I have to wait for them to investigate and decide if the gmail is really mine. What will they want next my license?
