Thank you guys for the response.

To @Valentin
I'm facing the issue with every service if I try to log in. For Gmail it is
most notable as it requires me to log in.

To @Florian
I've also checked this reddit thread. And it doesn't work for me
But thank you anyway. I don't really know whether I'll bother to address
this question to Google directly.
Anyway if I get something interesting on the topic I'll let you know.

The best of luck to you all.
