Saving google account settings

Post#1 by jssouza » 23 Nov 2017, 13:35

Does anyone know how to save google account information in persistence (which files to save), so that I do not have to log in to google from a web browser upon every boot? The problem is every time I log in to google (say, gmail) from a new login session, it sends me a mail asking me to verify if it was me who logged in.
I use palemoon, but to be able to do it from chrome or firefox is also ok.

Thanks.

Probably a cookie but could be something on Google's end checking your IP address or machine code. Have you considered filtering the email to a folder or the trash?

When signed on to gmail, select one of the annoying emails then select the option to create a label for it. Then create a filter for the label to direct it to trash.

This assumes that the annoying email is being sent to your gmail address not to a different account.
