I have multiple accounts active on my phone. I started by using my custom domain Google account, because it had my contacts. When I got on Google+, I couldn't use that account, so I had to link my normal Gmail account with my phone. And when I added my YouTube account, it threw that account on there too.

Now, in intervals that range from every few days to every few minutes, i get a notification that says "Sign In error with account (account name here)", then asks me to enter a capcha-like entry (enter letters of distorted words).

It usually happens to the standard Google account (, but has happened with all three at one time or another. Anyone know why this would be happening?

According to this forum deleting the YouTube account resolves it.
