Google services are blocking some Linux web browsers

Google services don't work on Linux

Most Apple users can live perfectly with Cupertino services, but the rest of us have to rely on other companies to manage our data, as well as use the cloud. In fact, among Apple users there are also many who prefer the Google services, which makes it clear that the search engine company is always one of the best options (for those who are not concerned about privacy). The problem, and this is true for any company, is that services can stop working at any time.

That is what is happening right now with Google services if we try to access them with some Linux browsers. This has been reported in Reddit, where they explain that cannot access these services from Linux browsers such as Konqueror, Falkon (both from KDE) or qutebrowser, the latter also available for Windows and macOS. The problem exists, but so far there has been no official statement from the company that Sundar Pichai runs.

Can't access Google services? Use another browser

The message that appears when trying to access from a currently unsupported browser says that:

Login failed. This browser or application may not be secure. Try using a different browser. If you are already using a supported browser, you can refresh your screen and try to log in again.

Although there is no official statement, Google does have a web page where we can see if our web browser is compatible, which we can access from here!. The problem is that browsers that cannot enter today could do so a few days ago, so it is likely that the information we are looking for is not available in the previous link.

The strangest of all is that There are users who say that they can enter to Google services with the same browser, so no one knows what is going on. If not all users of the same software could enter, we could think that it is a restriction like the one that prevents us from entering Gmail from some mail clients.

At the moment, those affected have only one option: use another browser. Pending an official statement or a solution, we recommend using Firefox.
