K, lets start off 1 at a time here....
if we can
this is really hard to read on mobile. but i dont really have choice. hey
This is alot of questions though
Lets go one at a time
whats the biggest problem?
and if you are on a cell, i can move to to Q and A......
will be eaiser on you
Well you asked like 6 questions
so whats the biggest issue here
depends on source of problem. not sure. have i been hacked? chrome asking for passphrase which i never even set up.
they seem related in that they have all happened at once
Can you give me more detials?
You gave alot of info
but i need more to make a corilation
hrome wants a passphrase i dont have it
You mean chrome, as in google chrome?
like the browser?
how is it no tech people own a phone this is terrible
or tje OS
oh, i have
If gogole chrome, as in the browser wants a PW
its for your google account
your gmail account.
android chrome ap
it wants your gmail passy
b/c chrome logs search history, etc......
it doesnt recognize it
and wants you to stay logged in
Are you sure its right?
and not locked out?
i miss type ALL the time on my phone.....
i email myself or text myself the passwords
so i can copy and paste
when on a mobile
have typed it in a zillion times and tried a bunch of other possibilites
id see if you can access the account from a PC.....
it may be locked
did you set it up with recover accounts?
other email account, or cell?
If not, and theres no pass phrases set up - "where were you born, etc"
Then the account is locked
and cant be unlocked
thats why they ask for alterinavite emails
and questions like where did you live, etc.
i have no clue. i have tried to fix it several times. maybe they locked it. i hate this
I think thats likely.....
You know, im new here.....
and 90% of my question are about email lock outs.
Its so easy to do
on one hand it sucks....
on the other they are trying to protect you
since so much info can be in there
Social, credit card info, banking.....
doubble edged swiord
well i can access email on phone but not ipad
so, if you can firsrt
set up ANOTHER account
or add in your cell for recovery
so you DONT lock it
getting that email account safe is #1
If you go into settings in gmail.....
it will let you add a recovery address....
or your cell
so they will text you or email you if you need to reset that password......
get that done first.
Incase you do lock it
Making sure that account is safe is by far your prirority.
i feel i did this already following google troublebshoot but willbtry again. this is rrally hard on mobile .. screen keeps jumping around
And are you sure its not locked?
can you send and get mail on the phone?
or just see old mail?
Let me move this to Q and A....will be MUCH eaiser for you and i to talk
And other can help as well.
But either way, please leave me some feed back, even if bad.
But Q&A is going to be much better for you.
and man, save that google account while and if you can.....
hello again. what is going on now?
ont be able to access mac until tomorrow.
google should be able to afford a call service dont you think? especially since they want access to everythin
