Interesting! However I just used Google Chrome to log out and log in without any trouble.
I too am getting this problem on some computers.
Those that are still logged in though are OK.
I just checked the options and its all still enabled as normal so I'm not sure whats causing it.
it seems it's only affecting those using 2-factor authentication (which I've been using for years)
This is the message I get:
get this when trying to login from chrome.
yep, same here, regardless of browser, but are you using two-factor authentication too (as I do, and people should ?)
I don't actually use two-factor auth. (shock horror) will turn it on today actually.
I am still logged in on FF, just Chrome (default browser) will no longer log in. :(
I now have only one computer left that I can login with. My laptop, work machine, phone and spare laptop are all unable to as I get the "OpenID 2.0 for Google Accounts has gone away"
@Thomas J Coyle III - Do you use a username and password or do you use your google account to login?
If this browser kicks itself out then I'm doomed :(
Use user name and pwd and that should not cause any issues, I have been using this method for years for this site and had no trouble so far. I use FF and crome most of times and no issues. So try it and let us know. meanwhile we don't have choice of changing the Open ID ver as far as I know in Ning host.
Cheers and good luck.
except, I did not sign up for a suername/password, and don't know the password(if it even exists)
@Andre - No, neither did I.
Go into your settings and set one. it becomes the same account so not an issue.
Can you then remove the google logo? Quite pointless now and causes confusion.
Mine is now sorted thanks - I'm using ye olde method of username and password :)
@Crispin - thanks, I took a chance on password recovery (unable to set new password whithout the current one) - and it worked.
