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 https://www.google.com 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.

      LG’s 2018 lineup of AI-enabled ThinQ TVs are going to be getting Google Assistant functionality in many of its international markets. Starting 8/24, Google Assistant will be available in Canada, Australia, and the UK, with support coming to South Korea, Spain, France, and Germany by the end of the year.
      LG’s ThinQ TVs came with integrated Google Assistant when they launched in the US and added support for Alexa commands soon after. The built-in ThinQ AI, which runs on LG’s own WebOS can be used for TV-specific commands, such as “search for the soundtrack of this movie,” while Google Assistant and Alexa can be used as a smart home hub. You can basically use the TV the same way you’d use your Google Home by speaking commands into the mic on your remote.
      LG is also planning on bringing Amazon Alexa support to Australia and Canada in the future, but no time is specified yet.
