I recently decided to enhance my online security by changing all my passwords and activating Two-Factor authentication for most of the services I use. I updated my passwords in Google Password Manager and enabled on-device encryption.
After updating my Google Account password, I was automatically logged out of all my devices. However, when I tried to access my passwords in Google Password Manager, I received a message saying that I couldn't access my encrypted data on the device I was using. The message suggested that I should try using a device that I recently used to sign in to my Google account:
for security, you can no longer access your encrypted data on this device. try again using a device that you’ve recently used to sign in to your google account.
What I have tried:
- Checked the Web & App Activities settings on your Google Account and turned it Off and then On again.
- Checked the cookies settings on your browser.
- Confirmed that Sync is not paused in Google Chrome.
- Cleared data in Google Chrome and turned Sync off, signed back in, and turned Sync on again.
- Checked the Device Activity page on your Google Account and confirmed that Sync is On and not paused on the devices you recently signed out of.
- Restarted my device and waited for bookmarks and passwords to load.
Despite trying these steps,I still cannot access my encrypted data on the device I am using, and I am looking for further help.
