Hi all,

every time I try to login my google account in Firefox, I get the two step verification from Google.

In My Account, I have already turned off two step verification, but Firefox triggers it every time.

I have to use Chrome when I need to get into my Google account, since two ways is such an annoyance.

Anybody knows how to configure Firefox so that Google does not require two ways verification?

Thank you

Regards

Gio

Clear the browser cache (use menu path Tools->Options->Advanced->Network tab->click on "Clear Now" button.)

Delete any cookies relating to the site(s) involved (Tools->Options->Privacy->Firefox will "Use custom settings for History"->Show Cookies button).

running chromium needs also 2-way - its not limited to firefox and depends on the chrome built-in extensions which are not present in chromium. regular bahavior. this is one of google methods making people addicted to chrome.

Actually, it looks like it is Google in Italian which requires two steps verification.

Using Google services in English (.com) appears to be fine, and it only requries login and password...


Thank you again!

Nope... it is asking two steps verification again... Any google service, not sure about the language either.

I have deleted the cache but now it does not matter....

Any othe ridea?

Forget it... it was LastPass, my password manager.

It triggers Google's two step verification. If I type manually my login and then LastPass types the password, then it works as expected...

Sorry guys,

thank you for your help,

regards
