I think I got this problem a while ago. I end up adding another email to my account because Google won't let me use the current one, but I never confirm that email. That fixed the problem and I was able to login with the old email again.

How can you tell if you have or don't have a Google Account? I can't remember if I ever had to create a Google account to sign in, but I have to enter the details everytime right now :(

(Hmmm ... but that login2 page works for me...)

My account no longer seems to be able to remember my login info for adsense. Is this a new change or a bug?

Also, my iPhone can no longer log in. Well, i can log in, but it loads the reports page in the small login box frame of the login page. Weird.

Thanks for the updates ASA. Hope this helps.

This is working for me and my AdSense login is now being remembered. Thanks ASA.

This URL allows me to finally log in with my iPhone.

Now I can once again check my stats while waiting in line at the super market. Phew...

When logging in to AdSense, I recently noticed that now I have to always input my login info. It used to remember who I was. Cookies are not blocked.

Also, when logging in with my Iphone to check stats AdSense will load where the red "Loading..." box appears; a small, unscrollable iframe. A refresh to escape this unusable stat box takes me back to the login info page because, well, AdSense makes me always put in my login info.

Is this happening to anyone else?

It's been happening for the last day or so.

Yea, it's an issue from Adsense team so no need to panic, my friend.

Perhaps, it will be back on track after a day or two..

Wonder if anyone else has noticed this - obsessive Adense-checkers as some of you are :o)

I used to be able to refresh my Adsense Reports page anytime through the day without needing to log in, after i had logged in once. Now, if i go more than 5 minutes or so without refreshing the page, i have to log in again with my e-addy and password.
Just wondering if i did something, IE did something on an auto update, or Google did something that changed things.

Any advice/comments would be appreciated!

I finally found where Google addresses the problem - CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD - IT WORKS!

"...Publishers experiencing this particular issue (getting stuck in an Google Account migration loop) are those whose original AdSense email address *and* password match their existing Google Account email address and password. In other words, if you signed up for AdSense before we asked everyone to update to Google Accounts, and then you later created a Google Account with the *same* email address and password (and haven't changed the password since), then unfortunately you're encountering a bug in our Google Accounts migration code.

Fortunately, there's an immediate solution to this issue. If you're stuck in this Google Account migration loop, simply visit [google.com...] sign in, and then change your Google Account password to something different than what you're currently using. In addition to being a good password management practice, you'll eliminate the migration loop with this change..."

Is it the same bug as a reducing CTR ? :-)

Seriously, Google admitting to a bug! Whatever next?

Strange I had this problem about a year ago. I kept doing what they asked and it made no difference.

I eventually emailed support and they just sent me a useless link and no recognition of the problem.

It's close to almost a month now and this still isn't resolved.

Obviously it's not a critical error having to sign in a 2nd time, but how hard can this be to fix?

yup. you'd think that the combined power of brains at google would suffice to solve a login error. its somewhat annoying. any official statement on the working progress and how long we still have to endure?

About automatic sign-in for AdSense
In the past, if you were already signed in to your Google Account, we'd automatically give you access to your AdSense account without needing to sign in again. Due to a recent fix for an issue, this automatic sign-in feature was temporarily disabled. However, we're working on a permanent solution that will resolve the original issue and also allow this automatic sign-in process to work correctly.

Still not working. Just how long does it take to fix something like this?

5:48 pm on Nov 10, 2009 (gmt 0)



Strange...I was thinking precisely the same this morning when it seemed to take longer than ever to log-in.

Past 2 days taking a long time to log-in.

And this is NOT working at all: "About automatic sign-in for AdSense In the past, if you were already signed in to your Google Account, we'd automatically give you access to your AdSense account without needing to sign in again. Due to a recent fix for an issue, this automatic sign-in..."

It's still working fine here in Nevada. Maybe it's a location problem today.

They still don't have this stupid login fixed.

I'll bet they laid off all the non-PhD's at Google and now there's nobody left around Google to do the actual coding, the PhD's have THOUGHT about the problem, just nobody left to IMPLEMENT the fix.

Yeah, I was thinking this morning about how it just seems like AdSense is limping along as long as they have that "Already signed in?" message every time I go to view AdSense stats. Add this to the "August 2007 Optimization Report" that can't be made to disappear AFTER TWO AND A HALF YEARS, and I have to think that AdSense is broken, or they just don't care.

Come on, Google, we expect better from you.
