I am a Spaniard living in China. Recently I have been receiving many alert messages from Google "Preventing myself" from accessing my account. I think because I use a VPN to connect to the internet.

My main problem is that my account is blocked until I go to a Google website to unblock it (most of the times changing my password). I can't count how many passwords I invented last month.

Is there any way to contact Google so they stop the prevention, or any way to disable this precaution alert? I think I prefer taking the risk...

This works:

On your Gmail mail box look at the bottom right corner and you can see a Details button. Click on it and then on the pop up window change the suspicious warning settings.

That wont prevent google from preventing the suspicious sign in unfortunately. It will mean you aren't notified. – user64749 Mar 31 '14 at 8:25
