Disable Gmail email account security alerts

How can I disable the Gmail email account security alerts?

An organization I am consulting for had their Veeam backup email alerts setup using a single Gmail email account that accesses this Gmail account using the SMTP email protocol.

The Veeam backup program on 40 Windows computers sends alerts to this Gmail email address everytime that the Veeam backup succeeds, fails, or has any issues.

These users often travel with their laptops and I am constantly receiving Gmail security alerts related to this email account.

So is there any way that I can disable the Gmail email account security alerts for this Gmail email account?

Rather than disabling, I would have them go to a separate email account.

That way they don't bother anyone, and you can always check them if you ever need to.

Hi Knowledgeable,

If you have the licensing you may want to consider setting up Veeam ONE - it is a consolidate dashboard that would generate 1 alert to say an admin or whomever you want to receive the email. This would eliminate in-device alerts from 40 machines.

I don't know of a way to remove the security features; I believe these are built-in security mechanisms.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

We are using the free version of Veeam and so far I haven't found any way of setting up a single email alert that will be sent to the admin about the Veeam backup activity of all of the computers in which it is installed.

use the same account i.e. alerts@company.com
If you can assign an email address you can always change it.
