  With the username and password that you have, can you sign into your gmail account online?

Hi Dorofam!


Oh no! Sounds like you have been through quite a lot to get this to work. Let's get this fixed. Google recently released a new verification process for Gmail accounts that allows the account to become more secure.  The process is called 2-step verification, 2- step verification allows the customer to ONLY sign into certain Gmail programs with their normal password.  Other applications requires the user to actually go onto a website to create a temporary password "the link is provided below" (https://accounts.google.com/ServiceLogin?passive=1209600&continue=https://accounts.google.com/Issued....

Thanks,
