Do you think Gmail is way too sensitive sometimes?
I recently tried to find people through my Gmail on my Ask.fm account. Here’s where the trouble starts. Gmail doesn’t let me log on. Then I get an email warning me of suspicious activity. I let it go. Whatever, right? I know it was me, so I don’t care. Then today, I get a warning about suspicious activity about the EXACT damn thing! And I say yes, it’s me. I recognize this activity. Even though it’s from Russia and I live in Canada. ‘Cause, well, I guess that’s where whatever they use logs you in from or something. So then it says I have 10 minutes to log into the account I want to use. Which seems fine and good… until I find out… Ask.fm is getting upgraded. Great! So now 10 minutes has either passed or is passing.. I am so frustrated! This isn’t the first time Gmail has done something like this to me, either… Gmail has MADE me change my password over stupid crap like this. UGH!!
Do you have any frustrating stories like this? Do you think Gmail is totally justified?
