Cant Log into Google Account

Hello,

I am trying to log into google, so I can download google trends data. But keep getting this error:

This browser or app may not be secure. Learn more
Try using a different browser. If you’re already using a
supported browser, you can try again to sign in.

Is this related to Palladian at all? (the category suggests s)

If yes, please provide more details.

Thanks,

Hello,

This is what happens when I am using Webdriver Factory to log into Google.com

Hi,

ok, so looks like they detect automated browsers (this is what they hint with “less secure”).

Some ideas: Try using a different browser, supply a profile which is not entirely “clean” and contains some real-world browsing history, disable the “AutomationControlled” flag through the capabilities, … At the end they apply some heuristics to detect scripted browsers, and thus there are tricks to make a browser appear less like a bot, but be prepared for a cat and mouse game.

Thank you, i will let you know what works!
