Google asks me for my phone number

Google wants to keep your account secure and be sure that YOU are accessing your account but phone numbers aren’t always the best way to verify student accounts, especially for younger students without cell phones.  

Sometimes you can click “skip” or “done” without entering a phone number but if there is no other way past this message, change your password using the  Student Password Hub​ or use CBE computer password tools to clear this prompt.​

Google says: My password changed xx hours/days ago

If you see this login error, it can mean that your Google Password was mistakenly reset through automated system processes, while your CBE network password remained the same. To fix this, change your network password using the Student Password Hub. This will retrigger the password synching with CBE and Google systems. Your CBE network and CBE Google Password will then both be the new password. Be sure your new password is at least 8 characters for Google to accept it.​​​​​​
