Google Gmail Problem?

Recently, I posted about Google's security verification to log into gmail. 

Today, with no signing in multiple times, that might cause Google's security to set off an alert, Google required me to go through a verification process to access this gmail account. I didn't expect it.

An over zealous security feature can cause account holders, like me for instance, to feel the discomfort of being hassled. And, to question why the push for folks to avoid using Gmail.

Are other servers revving up their log in verification requirements?

21 May...hassled again to verify in order to log in

Several of my sites have installed a new layer of security, so I wonder if there have been attacks. Some insist on going through all the verification on each device. And a lot of incoming mail is going into spam, to the point where I now routinely check spam as well as inbox.

Thank you, Liz
Beefing up security makes sense.

Although I greatly dislike the hassle of two-factor authentication, it seems to be the way of the future, and I'm told it's much more secure. Sigh.

Two step verification is good.

For gmail Google verification, without 2 steps, it took me 5 click pages to finally log in.

Nope. But I've started having trouble commenting to those without pop-up windows... ugh.

It is hit or miss for me leaving comments on other blogs.

True, it does blend in with the way the world is now.
