Wondering how to get rid of suspicious sign in prevented error? Here’s how to go about it.

When you are connected to a VPN, your IP address changes. So, instead of recognizing you, Gmail thinks you are someone else from a new location. That’s why this error pops up. To get rid of it, enable Google’s 2-step verification. Not only will it increase your account’s security, you will also not face this issue when attempting to log in while a VPN is running.
