I travel a ton for my job but every time I go to a different location, Gmail notifies me that there may be suspicious activity. This is when I try to sign in. Is there a way to stop this? It usually doesn't recognize my password so I can't log in. Thank you for your help.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hey just change your password and activate 2 step verification. When you every time login from new devices or different system it will be ask for verification code which sent your mobile number. So you can easily login.

Gmail track our login by GEO location. When you login from different location its suppose that it was not you. So shows you message like suspicious activity on your account.

    The notification is set up for your own protection. I also travel, and work from different locations/computers, so I often get these notifications, but it has never affected my ability to access my account. I appreciate the security it adds, as I would know right away if it wasn't me trying to access the account, and would be able to take immediate measures if it was compromised.

    You will get a notification every time you login from a new location or device. This may be what you are referring to.
