I have a dozen over gmail accounts used to store zip files
(either as google drive or just emails with attachments) that
I used to login using my Win 7/XP days but now when I
tried login using other PCs (sometimes my new Win10 PC
& often office PC), it'll prompt for the following:
Thing is each time I request for verification code, there's a
$0.50 being charged to my phone bill.
How does Gmail decide it's an unrecognized device? On
many occasions, just using a different browser (eg: using
Chrome, firefox, Edge or corporate's secure browser) on
the very same PC will trigger the following ie despite it's
the same PC but different browser, it's treated as different
device. Got a feel that when the browser is upgraded,
it'll treat it as a different device too.
Is there something from one browser that I could transfer
over to another browser or from one PC to another PC to
make it recognize as same device? Had incurred quite a
number of such phone charges for the verification code so
if the code can be sent to a 'recovery email' or there's
another way for the code, would be great.
Gmail doesn't have this feature more than 8-9 years ago
