Account has been blocked; verified email, but still not working

I cannot login with google

Background: I used gmail account to login to gitlab. I have ssh access setup. One day, the message said that the account is blocked. I went to the web and asked it to send email to confirm it. I recieved a mail to confirm my email address. After confirming the email, I tried logging in. It said:

You have to confirm your email address before continuing. Please check your email for the link we sent you, or click ‘Resend confirmation email’.

Then, I entered my email address. It said:

  • Could not authenticate you from GoogleOauth2 because “Csrf detected”.*

I tried again re-clicking on the link in my email. It said:

1 error prohibited this email from being saved:

  • Email was already confirmed, please try signing in

I repeated the process a few times to validate that I cannot login.

I went through the forum. I tried the following:

  1. Went to the link given to have email resent: no effect. ( site).
  2. Tried a different browser: no effect.
  3. Removed other email ids from the browser: no effect.
  4. One of the messages said that after trying the methods suggested if it still did not work, I should raise a ticket: Did that around two days back. No response yet. (as suggested at Account has been blocked )

I am not sure if I can do anything else. My email id is [redacted].

Thank you,

Hi @kramarao! I have redacted your personal email address for the sake of anonymity - the GitLab team will be able to see that information if necessary!

Please check out this provided solution and let me know if it gets you closer! Thanks so much!

My problem is solved. I got the confirmation email on the primary email and responded to that and it all worked out thanks to gitlab team, specifically
