Unable to login into the Android App with Google Account


Everytime I try to login with my Google account I get the error (translated from german) "An unknown error occured. Please try again later". :-S
I can login with that account into other apps and on desktop into the web app of Todoist.

Otherwise, what area the pros and cons of an Todoist Account vs Google Account login, if there are any?

Hello Aicke,

Please tell me, does the issue still persist (could have been a temporary server issue)?

You can change the login method of your account in Todoist's Settings -> Account, using "Edit" next to "Password" on the web. Once you set a password you can log in manually.

There are no benefits from logging in with Google at all aside from the one-click login option vs. typing the email/password combination. Though if you don't log out, you don't have to retype it anyway.

Best regards,

Hello David,

yes the problem still persists. But now after following your alternative solution, I realized that my my google account email has changed from googlemail.com (the old email domain for e.g. german users) to gmail.com, but the email attached to my google account on the phone is still googlemail.com. This is normally not a problem because both versions are legit. But it obvious seems to be a problem for some login solutions.
Anyway, now I'm logged in the app, that's all I wanted, but maybe other non american users have the same problem.
