What is the maximum number of clients logged into the same Gmail account at the same time? Also what is the limit for logging frequently from different places

"limit for logging frequently" - Do you mean, the frequency with which the "Recent activity" table is updated? – w3dk Sep 3 '14 at 20:25
@w3d I am not sure. I am writing an webapplication for 10 people tops and they will share same Gmail account(I want simple account not this groups account) and I am affraid that they will reach limits when logging from different places(same city). – Yoda Sep 3 '14 at 20:29
I wouldn't have thought you'd reach a numerical limit with 10 users (although it would be interesting to know how Gmail deals with concurrency - although maybe you are providing only limited access?). However, I imagine this might trigger the "unusual activity alert" - although this can be turned off on the account (takes a week apparently). Although, if you are writing an application to interface with Gmail and your users are only connecting with your application, then I guess there really is only one user; your application? – w3dk Sep 3 '14 at 20:51
