macOS 10.14.4 G-Suite bug is fixed

The previously reported bug that caused a login loop for Google-hosted G-Suite accounts has been fixed, presumably on the server side.

The bug was first introduced in macOS 10.14.4 beta. Originally the bug affects any Google accounts with Two-Factor-Authentication (2FA) turned on; Gmail and G-Suite altogether. When macOS 10.14.4 was released, only G-Suite accounts with 2FA were affected. iOS 12.2 was also affected by this bug.

We checked on Saturday morning, March 30, 2019, and found out that the issue was fixed. Assuming that it was fixed on the server side by Google.

A lot of businesses and educational institutions are using G-Suite.

macOS Mojave 10.14.4 breaks G-Suite Account Access in

Add the accidentally deleted “Two-Factor Authentication” bit.

With the release of macOS Mojave 10.14.4, another bug that was originally introduced in 10.14.4 beta. This bug also presents in macOS 10.4.5 beta, iOS 12.2 and iOS 12.3 beta.

Google-hosted G Suite account with Two-Factor Authentication enabled will not be able to log in properly.

When adding a G Suite account you will get a message:

Enter the password for the account “(null)”.
Google requires completing authentication in Safari.

In macOS 10.14.4, to authenticate Google Accounts, Safari opens in Private Browsing Mode.

This bug had been reported multiple times by Apple Developers and Beta testers since the release of macOS 10.14.4 beta 1.

First there was a loud crashing sound…

I was at the end of Chat Support with Apple when I heard a loud crashing sound right outside the building. I then typed:

I gotta go, there’s a crash outside the building;


Firefighters were on the scene within 120 seconds, as the accident was only 20 feet away from a Fire Station.

It looked like there were total of three vehicles involved in the accident, I could only see two including the pick-up truck pictured above. People were gathering around as eyewitnesses described what they saw to the firefighters.

Police arrived a few minutes later.

We should have DashCam as a standard equipment in all new cars. Retrofitting DashCam into existing cars is also a great idea.
