What is a login challenge

  • If Google detects a suspicious login attempt to one of your users’ accounts, an additional security question or challenge will have to be dealt with before the login is allowed – this is a login challenge.
  • The usual way to verify the user’s identity is by sending a code to the user’s phone. The code then needs to be entered into the login challenge page.
  • You can ask users to enter their Employee ID instead of their phone when an unusual login triggers the login challenge.
