I tried login in to my Gmail account from another city...

A week has passed, and every time I do a Google search or use a Google product, I keep getting this message at the top: "Google prevented suspicious attempt..."

I do NOT know what they want me to do. But I am seriously getting tired of dismissing it.

I realize that I can turn off the alert all together...

But is there a way I can just confirm that the activity was by me, and make it stop alerting me?

Btw, I have already clicked the "review activity" button several times...

Like I said I know how to turn this feature off altogether - that's not what I'm after...

  • Have you completed the Security Checkup on Gmail security tips? Commented Mar 5, 2018 at 22:13
  • It is there for security reasons.

  • Pray tell exactly how do you disable this? It prevents me from logging in at all when I'm in a different city

It's because you might have some other security alerts into your account that you haven't reviewed yet.

Here's a simple way to do that:

Google Security Checkup

  • Click on the unresolved issues.

Unresolved Security Issues

  • Click on the 3 dots menu on top right of the specific issue and choose appropriate response.

Resolve the Issues

  • Do this for all of the unresolved issues and you shouldn't see alerts anymore.

I hope it helps!
