Support Request: Access to Gmail

Description

When attempting to log into their GMail account, users are shown a message from the Google site - "Couldn't sign you in. This Browser may not be secure. Try using a different browser."

Site Kiosk is set to use Chrome. All other browser settings are default.

Hello,

The problem was reproducible and also in the underlying Chromium CEF Browser comes the same message after logging into a Gmail account.
Maybe it is because “…Google might stop sign-ins from browsers that:

- Are embedded in a different application.”

I forwarded it to our developers for further investigation and get back to you as soon as I have more information.

Hello,

Our developers have checked it and apparently Google has excluded all Chromium CEF browsers from GMail login. Since IE is also excluded, no IE-based skin can be used in SiteKiosk.

However, the current workaround with SiteKiosk would be to send a user agent from a browser supported by GMail.
I e.g. tested this with the User Agent of the current Firefox browser and it worked.
Here is the User Agent you can use:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:71.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/71.0

Here's the information on how to add it to SiteKiosk:

If you want to check the user agent that is used in the browser you can use this page:
