Why does Gmail prevent me from logging in by ‘Suspicious Sign In Prevented’ error?

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.
