FAQ: Gmail / Google Mail login in SiteKiosk

Description

Generally you need to use the Chrome Browser skin to be able to login to Gmail as the IE Webbrowser Control is not supported.
But apparently Google has also excluded all Chromium CEF browsers from Gmail login.

If you get the message “Couldn't sign you in…This browser or app may not be secure…Try using a different browser.” when you try to login to Gmail in SiteKiosk with Chrome Browser skin (as is currently the case - status Dec 2019) the current workaround with SiteKiosk is to send a user agent from another browser supported by Gmail.
e.g. the User Agent of the current Firefox browser (as of Jan 2020)

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:72.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/72.0

Here's the information on how to add it to SiteKiosk:
https://devblog.provisio.com/post/2017/02/20/Changing-the-User-Agent-of-the-SiteKiosk-Windows-Chrome-Browser.aspx

If you want to check the user agent that is used in the browser you can use this page (press "Try it" button to check):
https://www.w3schools.com/jsref/tryit.asp?filename=tryjsref_nav_useragent


Example:
Open your SiteKiosk configuration with an editor as described in the DevBlog article and search for the following lines (lines 1145-1147):

"userAgent": {
    "enabled": false,
    "full": "",


With this entry you have for example the User Agent of the current Firefox on Windows 10 (Jan 2020):

"userAgent": {
    "enabled": true,
    "full": "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:72.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/72.0",
