Are you able to get the sign in page of Gmail right now?

Asked by flo (7685 points ) April 29th, 2014

I can only get it if I google search and click on the
Sign in – Google Accounts
accounts.google.com
But I’m not signing in anyway.
What happens if you click on the Gmail tab in Google homepage?
The message I get is something like “security of the site is…. problem..”

There was a Google scam imposter a while back – I’ll look for info.

Found it – http://arstechnica.com/security/2014/03/phishing-page-hosted-on-google-a-true-dog-bites-man-scam/

Is it a reference to the web certificate? Do you have Windows XP or an older version? Sometimes I get that on my older laptop. I just ignore it and proceed.

Thanks all.
What is the givaway that the Gmail sign in page in the link @hearkat posted is fake?

The computer I was using is on XP @dappled_leaves

@flo If you are having the same problem that I was having with XP, I solved it by switching to Firefox as my browser on that computer (installing the latest version). Internet Explorer is becoming very, very difficult to use on XP. Eventually, I expect Firefox to be as bad, but for now it is working fine.

@dappled_leaves I guess so too bad~.

By the way can you tell me what the givaway is (in my last post)?

@flo No, sorry – I’ve never heard of or encountered the scam that @hearkat mentioned.
