Log in to Google using X Browser

Guide by Jeremy Larsen

Authenticating with Google services

X Browser uses Chromedriver, which is developed by Google. Because of that, Google can detect when a user is authenticating with their service using an automation tool.

However, the block can be circumvented by logging it through a different website that has an option to authenticate with Google. Stackoverflow.com is one example that offers this.

  1. Go to Stackoverflow.com and click on the "Log in" button. You will be taken to the window where you will be able to select the "Log in with Google" option.

  1. After logging in, you will get the option to create a Stack Overflow account if you do not have one already. Please note that creating one is optional. In the top-right corner, you can see that the browser is already logged in to Google. You may open a new tab.
