Cannot sign in to my Google account in webOS

Question

Just bought the LG 55UM7300 yesterday. Opened the web browser today for the first time, and wanted to sign in to my Google account. I got this message:

"Couldn't sign you in. This browser or app may not be secure. Try using a different browser. If you're already using a supported browser, you can refresh your screen and try again to sign in."

I tried doing it again using

link hidden, please login to view
but got the same message. Since we don't have options for using other browsers, there may not be a way around this, but I thought I would check anyway. I'm using my secure home wi-fi network. Has anyone else experienced this?

Similar problem for me, when I try to sign into youtube through the browser not the app. I can browse and watch videos fine but when I try to sign into my account get the same message. I need to sign in to remove the ads

I have the same problem with Google and Google Mail sign in -- but only on one of my LG TVs.

The OLED55B6 suddenly won't sign in anymore, but the OLED65B7 will still sign just fine!!

I think the change was in Google's security code somehow.  They have
recently admitted to blocking some obscure Linux browsers, but haven't
detailed which ones, or why.  I suspect the LG webOS browser may be
one of those.

If so, they only blocked the version 05.30.60 browser in my B6 TV.
The later B7 runs version 05.80.50 and it still signs in normally.

Hallo,

I have the same problem with my LG OLED65C9PLA (purchased in November 2019). 

It worked perfectly for a few months, but sinds a month I have the same problem like you.

Has the problem now been solved for you?

Kind regards

Yes.  Mine started working again.  I think it is entirely controlled by Google, though they have never acknowledged it.

For some reason the TV is recognized as an iPhone now.  :-/

      According to the developer site, the Web Engine powering the Apps and I assume the Web Browser on WebOS is built on version 53 of Chromium (for 2018-2019 models) or Chromium 68 (for 2020 models). Version 53 is from 2016, and 68 is from 2018. The current version is 85.
      The latest version of JavaScript used  by modern websites (ES7) is only supported in version 68 and above, and there has been some evidence that although WebOS is using version 53 of Chromium the browser is not fully compatible with the previous JavaScript version (ES6).
      The result is that by keeping the WebOS browsers locked in older Chromium bases users will find more websites become unusable on our Smart TVs as old sites are upgraded to new versions and new sites come out. This is not an issue for Android based Smart TVs where users can install current web browsers of their choice.
      LG is supposed to be a leader in technology- I have been incredibly pleased with my LG phones and other appliances but am extremely disappointed with the proprietary WebOS browser on LG Smart TVs. IN 2020 it is unacceptable thar such a fundamental function of a smart device (web browsing) is so out of date.

      New to LG WebOS. Cannot sign into my Amazon.com account. Keep getting password error even though I am 100% sure I entered the correct user id and password. Is this a know issue, or some settings I need to change on my TV?

      It is now 2020, and the WebOS browser in LG Smart TVs (which I believe is Chromium-based) is still massively out of date and doesn't work properly with a ton of websites!
      The main problem is actually very simple. The browser doesn't support EMCAScript 2015 or ES6.
      Basically, translated from nerd speak, it doesn't work properly with modern code using new features created since 2015, so any newer websites will break unless they've been written to be compatible with ancient browsers and OSes.
      This should not be the case on a TV made in the current year. It should be running an up-to-date web browser, if not for convenience, then for SECURITY reasons as well!
