Log in to Google using X Browser

Authenticating with Google services

X Browser uses Chromedriver which is developed by Google so they 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 used as an example since they offer this option.

  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. You will be taken to the Google Sign In window. Log in to your Google account as usual.
  1. After logging in, you will get the option to create a Stack Overflow account if you do not have one already. Creating one is not necessary.
    However, you can see that the browser is already logged in to Google in the top right corner of the screenshot.
    You may open a new tab.

Voila! All Google service are available during the session.
