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.

    Details Popup window doesn't have a way of changing the warning settings anymore.

  • As of 2021 I don't even see a Details popup in gmail, and no security settings are exposed in the settings interface.

I applied this solution and as a result I obtained this answer:

Alert preference: Never show an alert for unusual activity.

Which is what I was looking for. For me, it is enough.
