    I downloaded the Developer 8.1 tonight on my Lumia 1520 and I am having some problems with my Google account (I'll pause while you all get over your shock).

    I've tried searching the forums, so if this issue has already been fixed I wasn't able to locate it, so feel free to point me in the right direction.

    When I go to add my Google account, it takes me to the screen to do the OAuth process. When I click connect, it goes to the black screen like is thinking, but then just takes me back to the connect screen. I think I have found the cause, but don't know the solution. When I go to IE and log in to Gmail or Google+ (basically any https://) Google site, I get the Certificate Error screen. Even when I try to do a Google search from the Google App, I get the Certificate Error screen that flashes up and it doesn't connect.

    I was able to get my email added by using the advance setup option, but that does not give me the option to add my calendars or contacts.

    I'm really hoping I am not the only one who had this problem and somebody has a fix.

    What's the certificate error? Name mismatch? Expired? Something else?

    Did you try to use the app password or your google pw? I had to use the one time app password on my 1320 to make the g-account fully accessible.

    EDIT: I have had several certificate errors before and I then tried the app pw.

    Hotphil - I'll have to double check later, but it is the Certificate creator is not recognized and it gives me the option to go back to previous website or continue. I click continue and can access it from IE, but it doesn't give me that option anywhere else.

    iKarlito - I'm not familiar with an app pw. I only have 1 pw that I know of for Google, and it's my normal password.

    Thanks Maclancer that fixed the issue perfectly. I'm having the same issue with ESPN now but that isn't as important as my Google stuff.
